Separate Cat Friendly Areas

Looking after our feline friends

We are proud to be the only local practice offering a completely separate cat waiting room, consulting rooms, hospital ward and operating theatre.

Most cats are considerably calmer when removed from the sights and smells of dogs whilst visiting a veterinary surgery. 


We are proud to be the only local practice offering completely separate cat facilities which include;


  • A comfortable waiting room / reception specifically for cats and their owners.


  • 4 cat-only consulting rooms


  • Cat-only in-patient and hospitalisation wards, operating theatre and preparation room


After re-designing our building in 2004, our commitment to including cat friendly areas won us a 2007 Feline Advisory Bureau Cat Friendly Practice Gold Award (one of only eight received in the UK that year). This scheme to raise awareness of feline-friendly care in veterinary practices has gone from strength to strength thanks to the FAB, now known as The International Society for Feline Medicine (ISFM).
