Did you know that El Dorado Animal Hospital is a certified Cat-Friendly Practice? Meeting the essential standard criteria established by the American Association of Feline Practitioners, our certification means we are committed to doing our part to transform and elevate the veterinary care of this underserved population.
The feline pet population is less likely to receive veterinary care than the more popular canine species for a number of reasons, mostly due to the stress involved for both cat and cat owner. Check out these disturbing facts documented in 2011 which show how great the disparity is between these two.
International Cat Care, a top quality non-profit, hosts one of our favorite cat care websites, www.icatcare.org. In existence for over 50 years, ICC provides excellent tips for bringing your cat to the vet with minimal stress. These include what kind of carrier to use and ways to make it familiar to your cat to keep her calm. Also listed are tips on what to look for in a veterinary professional such as a separate waiting area and cat-friendly trained staff who will assist in giving both you and your furry friend the time and attention you need. This website is an excellent resource for cat owners including suggestions for making your home cat-friendly, nursing guidelines and plenty of other cat-related advice.
El Dorado Animal Hospital is committed to raising the level of pet health care for the feline population and encourages everyone to be educated about maintaining cat health and happiness. Contact us and let us show you how a Cat-Friendly Practice can make all the difference for you and your pet.
