Avondale Veterinary Healthcare Complex, PC is now a CAT FRIENDLY PRACTICE.  Avondale has reached the gold standard of feline care and is concentrating on helping clients with their distinct needs of cats and the importance of feline veterinary visits and improve the overall level of feline healthcare.    Why do you and your cat deserve a Cat Friendly Practice?   Domestic cats need regular veterinary exams to establish healthcare plans for longer, happier and healthier lives.  During routine check-ups we can often detect conditions or diseases that may affect your cat's health before they become painful or more difficult to treat.  Visiting the veterinarian can be a source of major stress for you and your cat.  The American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) established the Cat Friendly Practice (CFP) to reduce the stress associated with veterinary visits, increase the quality of care provided, and support the veterinary team with making subtle changes that consider cat's distinct needs and behaviors.   Cat Friendly Practices have proven they take specific extra steps to assure they understand a cat's unique needs and have implemented feline-friendly standards.   Vet Visits Don't Have to Be Stressful!   It can be downright difficult to get your cat to the vet, however, routine healthcare is essential for your cat to live a long, healthy life.  Designated Cat Friendly Practices have made changes to provide a more calming environment for you and your cat.  We can even provide tips about how to reduce stress before and after the visit, including how to help you make the carrier a familiar space.    Staff Members at Avondale have been trained in how to approach and handle cats in a gentle, empathetic, and caring manner.  Physical adjustments have been made to make the visit more positive for you and your cat.   The Cat Friendly Practice certificate on our wall has been earned by meeting a comprehensive checklist of performance criteria to verify that staff members are especially qualified and dedicated to making every visit as pleasant and beneficial for you and your cat as possible.   When you see the Cat Friendly Practice designation, you can be confident your cat will be given exceptional care and attention through all phases of the visit, including examinations, procedures, and hospitalization.   What to Expect from a Cat Friendly Practice   Avondale has a Cat Hospital that has a separate entrance from dogs being seen which reduces stress associated with noise and unfamiliar smells.   Staff have been trained to understand the individualized needs of cats including feline specific facial and behavior cues.   Avondale has implemented feline-friendly handling techniques to facilitate a more positive experience.   The Avondale Cat Hospital has feline only examination rooms that provides a safe, non-threatening area where cats can be examined calmly and effectively.   Staff have the experience to recognize subtle, early signs of fear or anxiety and adapt appropriately.   To Learn More About the Cat Friendly Practice Program, visit www.catvets.com/cfp
