We are proud to be a Cat Friendly Clinic. This year our Torquay vets surgery passed its reaccreditation and celebrated 4 years as a Cat Friendly Clinic. Our Paignton vets surgery is also accredited.
An accredited Cat Friendly Clinic has reached a higher standard of cat care in that the team:
- Understand the needs of cats and have made visits to the vet clinic more cat friendly
- Understand how to approach and handle cats gently and with care
- Have good knowledge and equipment to manage the care of cats
Achieving Cat Friendly Clinic accreditation involves all staff, from receptionists, veterinary nurses, through to vets. Each accredited clinic also has at least one ‘Cat Advocate’ – someone who ensures the cat friendly standards are adhered to, and who would be happy to talk to you. Our ‘Cat Advocate’ is Registered Veterinary Nurse, Claire.
