Take the stress out of the vet at our feline friendly practice:
The team at Latah Creek Animal Hospital is committed to reducing stress, fear, and anxiety for cats during their office visits. Our exceptional team of cat advocates follows a specific set of initiatives to make cats as comfortable and happy as possible.
We strive to make every visit a pleasant one for all of our patients, training all of our staff in gentle techniques. However, for feline appointments, we go even farther with the following:
- Calming pheromones and a feline-friendly environment (bring out the catnip!)
- Trained team members who understand cats
- Reduced stress for pets and their caregivers
Feline Friendly Practice
Latah Creek Animal Hospital is proud to be a certified Cat Friendly Practice. This program is leading the movement to make veterinary care less stressful for cats and their caregivers. Our compassionate team strives to provide a fear-free experience for all patients. Using a feline-only exam room, calming pheromones, and team members trained in feline friendly and fear-free techniques greatly decreases the stress and anxiety in both our feline patients and their pet parents.
Established by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) and the International Society for Feline Medicine (ISFM), the Cat Friendly Practice® program is a global initiative designed to elevate care for cats by reducing the stress for the cat, caregiver, and also the entire veterinary team.
