Brookfield Animal Hospital is a proud member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and is a feline friendly practice.
You can read more about what it means to be ‘feline friendly’ (and you should click through the link to see everything that’s involved…amazing really how much time, energy, experience and insight went into these recommendations for feline friendly practices), but here’s how we stand out from most practices (only 1 in 100 veterinary practices in America are designated ‘feline friendly’).
Our team members are trained how to interact with, touch, and even talk, that’s right talk, to cats. At Brookfield we pay special attention to noise levels, how quickly we move around cats, and how much time we give them in the exam rooms.
If you cat comes to our practice you’ll see that we have invested in feline-only rooms and areas of our practice. Free from the smells of other species of animals (read dogs!), our cats are less anxious. We also have special pheromones on hand that act naturally to quiet and reassure cats.
Our veterinarians don’t just treat cats, we care for and pay attention to them…integral if you’re going to have a patient that stays calm throughout a visit to our practice or stay in our hospital. We regularly attend education events and talk amongst ourselves on how we can improve the way we interact with cats.
Why Calm Cat Practices Matters
Cats are notorious at hiding signs of illness. We encourage you to bring your cat to the veterinarian on a regular basis. In advance of your visit. Please call us for some tips on how to make the experience as stress-free as possible for your cat. We look forward to seeing you!
