Here at Seymour Vets our hospital in Totnes has been accredited as an ISFM Gold 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 Gold this means we have achieved the highest accreditation level and therefore keep cats and dogs separate in the waiting room, have a dedicated cat consulting room and we run an operating theatre with specialist equipment. We really think cat!
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, Lizzie Brand, says: “Staying in the clinic, away from their normal home, can be very stressful for cats. We do as much as we can to make cats comfortable and stress-free. Our cat patients are hospitalised in a separate, calm, quiet ward away from the dogs as part of our ISFM Cat Friendly Clinic accreditation.”

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