A visit to the vet can be a stressful experience for cats. For a species that needs a sense of control, territory and familiarity to feel safe, a trip to the vets is frightening. The distress this causes to the cat and also to their owner is a leading cause of cats not receiving the veterinary care they need and deserve.

Taking a cat’s eye view of the whole journey from home to consulting room, to ward and back again can open our eyes to the needs of cats and their owners, allowing us to make simple changes that make a big difference.

This learning series looks at all aspects of developing a more feline friendly ethos and the multiple advantages that it can bring to the patient outcomes, the practice and the veterinary team as well as the cats and their owners.
