    The International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM) is delighted to announce the launch of a new website for its increasingly popular Cat Friendly Clinic programme. The new website – catfriendlyclinic.org – provides an easy to navigate hub for both owners wanting to find a Cat Friendly Clinic and veterinary professionals wanting to learn more about becoming cat friendly.

    For cat owners, there is an easily searchable ‘find a clinic’ page, information on what being a Cat Friendly Clinic really means and what standards owners and their cats can expect. For veterinary professionals, there is a wealth of materials to help and inspire clinics to become accredited. This includes photographs from already accredited clinics, illustrating the many ways in which Cat Friendly Clinic criteria can be easily implemented. There is also extensive advice on client communication, staff training, cat handling, the waiting room, the consulting room and hospitalisation facilities. Clinics can also register their interest in the programme via the website and gain access to a resource pack and the online application process.

    For clinics already accredited, the new easily searchable directory should steer more feline owning clients in their direction. Clinics can also share with their clients the series of owner leaflets (available in 10 different languages) which provide practical help with common problems or difficulties associated with veterinary visits, such as bringing you cat to the clinic, changing your cat’s food and giving tablets to your cat.

    The launch of the website comes in the same year that the Cat Friendly Clinic programme gained six new partners: Boehringer Ingelheim, Ceva Animal Health, Elanco, IDEXX Laboratories, Merial and Royal Canin. Dr Andy Sparkes, Veterinary Director of International Cat Care, ISFM’s parent charity, said, ‘We are delighted to be working with six companies who share our passion for providing the best level of veterinary care to cats across the world. With their partnership and our brand-new website, we can only see the Cat Friendly Clinic programme being adopted at more and more clinics worldwide – Cat Friendly Clinics really are the future!’

    Currently there are 966 clinics accredited in 32 different countries, with interest to date from over 4,000 clinics worldwide in 57 countries. Accreditation is available at three levels – bronze, silver and gold – meaning that almost all clinics which are prepared to make a few changes, adopt cat friendly principles and ‘think cat’ can achieve Cat Friendly Clinic status.

    Originally set up in 2012, the programme was developed to raise the standards of care and welfare of cats in the veterinary clinic, and to provide veterinarians with practical solutions to problems that they often face when dealing with their feline patients. The new website is the next step in furthering this initiative and helping more practices achieve Cat Friendly Clinic status.
