Cat Friendly Clinic

Cat Friendly ClinicAcorn House Veterinary Hospital has been accredited as a gold standard "cat friendly" clinic by the International Society of Feline Medicine

We understand it is stressful when you have to bring your cat to see us. This is why we are proud to announce that we have been accredited as a Cat Friendly Clinic.

Cat Friendly Clinic is an internationally recognised award. It means that we have met criteria to ensure all the needs of your cat are met.

Our Cat Friendly advocates are Rosie Theakston RCVS and Rachel Potts RVN

So what have we been doing to make our practice so special? Over the course of 2015 we extended our building to include a separate cat ward.


This means that cats can recover from surgery and illness in peace and quiet, away from the sounds and smells of the dogs in the practice and the hustle and bustle of our busy team. We can even watch the cats on our CCTV system, monitoring their every move without them realising it!

Our cat ward boasts very large kennels with igloo-style beds for cats to relax in.
We also have the luxury of a separate isolation ward so that stray or infectious cats can be cared for without putting other patients at risk.

Waiting room

In the waiting room we have provided a separate cat waiting area. This area has elevated resting places for cat baskets as we know that cats feel safer when they are higher up.

Waiting room
The entire practice team has undertaken additional training in cat-friendly handling. Nervous cats may feel more secure in a snug towel wrap as demonstrated by Sheldon and Hayley.

As part of the Cat Friendly Clinic programme, ISFM has produced a series of leaflets for cat owners to provide some background information on the CFC programme, but also to provide practical help with common problems or difficulties associated with veterinary visits:
