We have two designated exam rooms just for our feline friends. These exam rooms are quieter, with less "doggy traffic", and also come with a Feliway pheromone plug-in diffuser. Fresh towels on the exam tables, lightly sprayed with Feliway, are used to minimize slippery surfaces.
Feliway helps comfort your cat by mimicking natural feline pheromones. Feliway can be used to make a new place or situation "feel" more familiar and safe for cats. This is one important tool Abbotsford Animal Hospital is implementing to help create a stress-free environment for our feline friends.
These cat exam rooms also have a digital cat scale to use so weighing your furry friend doesn’t have to be so scary for them. They are no longer in the high traffic reception area to get on a scale that is on the ground.
As our front office can get quite busy, we have a reserved cat-only waiting area for the cat patients so carriers do not need to be on the floor; cats always feel safer in higher places. This will minimize visual contact with other waiting pets.
We also provide towels, sprayed with Feliway, to cover carriers so as to reduce eye contact between cats and other pets.
For the scared and frightened kitty travellers, we have options to make travelling to the clinic much more comfortable and the veterinary visit more enjoyable for our cat patients. Please contact us for more information.
