It can be stressful for both you and your cat to visit the veterinarian. The veterinary visit stars before you ever arrive at the veterinary clinic with trying to get your cat in the carrier and the car ride to the hospital. VCA Vets & Pets is also a Certified Gold Standard Cat Friendly Practice, accredited by the American Association of Feline Practitioners. We have made changes to provide a more calming environment for you and your cat during its visit. Staff members have been trained in how to approach and handle cats in a gentle, empathetic, and caring manner. Ask our staff for tips on how to reduce stress before and after the visit, including how to help make the carrier a familiar space. Click here for more information.
