Here at Albavet Veterinary Surgeons our Dunfermline practice has been accredited as an ISFM Silver Cat Friendly Clinic.
This accreditation is an internationally recognised award, and means we have met criteria to help minimise stress in your cat at our clinic.
The accreditations are Bronze, Silver and Gold, and as we have achieved Silver this means we have separate cat and dog waiting areas, feline-friendly hospitalisation cages, and specialist cat equipment. Most importantly our staff are trained in approaching and handling cats sensitively and respectfully, and stay up to date with their knowledge of feline medicine.
Our Cat Advocate, Nikki McLeod RVN, said: “We wanted to make sure that a trip to our clinic was as stress-free an experience as possible for our cat patients and their owners. Cats can get very anxious when taken out of their usual environment, and this can make owners reluctant to seek veterinary attention when their cat needs it.
“By undertaking Cat Friendly Clinic accreditation, we’ve committed to delivering high standards of cat care, with compassion and expertise.”

We look forward to welcoming you and your feline friends into the practice.
