At the Flemington Vet Hospital, we recognize that our feline friends are not just pets; they are cherished members of your family. We understand the unique needs and sensitivities that cats possess, especially when it comes to veterinary visits. We have purpose-built facilities designed with cats in mind, ensuring their comfort, well-being, and stress-free experiences.
In 2023, we achieved the gold standard accreditation through the International Society of Feline Medicine. This means that we have passed all the stringent guidelines in our facilities, our practices and expertise when it comes to all things feline.
Our commitment to feline-friendly care starts right from the moment you step through our doors. We have a separate cat-only waiting area so your cat can visit us undisturbed by other animals. Our cat-only consultation room is a safe haven, free from any lingering scents that might make your cat uneasy. We understand that dogs and cats have different sensitivities, and our mission is to make every veterinary visit as stress-free as possible. This unique space is tailored to meet the needs of our cat patients, ensuring they receive the attention and care they deserve.
Our commitment to creating a soothing environment for cats extends to every corner of our hospital. Feliway diffusers are strategically placed throughout our cat areas, releasing pheromones that help alleviate stress and anxiety. Our veterinary team is not only passionate about animals but also trained in low stress handling techniques specifically tailored for cats.
We understand that every cat is unique, and our team’s expertise ensures that each feline patient receives the individualized care and attention they need. From the moment your cat enters our facility to the time they leave, our goal is to provide a positive and comfortable experience. If your cat tends to get stressed during transport or veterinary visits, we encourage you to reach out to our dedicated team before your appointment. There are numerous strategies we can employ to ease your cat’s anxiety, ensuring a smoother and more enjoyable visit for both of you.
