Register for Cat Friendly Clinic materials and access the accreditation criteria and process
The Cat Friendly Clinic programme has been developed by ISFM as a global initiative and resource to help make veterinary clinics more welcoming to cats and cat clients, and to reduce the stress of veterinary visits for cats.
This website contains a number of pages of background information about the programme. However, through the generosity and support of our commercial partners for the Cat Friendly Clinic programme (Boehringer Ingelheim, Ceva, Elanco, Idexx, Merial and Royal Canin) we are able to provide further detailed resources to veterinary clinics at no additional cost. These are available when you register (see below).
Our six partners in this programme are:
- Boehringer Ingelheim
- Royal Canin
- In North and South America the CFC programme is being run by the American Association of Feline Practitioners
The Cat Friendly Clinic programme is a self-assessment accreditation scheme which is open to any veterinary practice that cares for feline patients. There are certain requirements regarding design, equipment and facilities within the clinic, and the standard of care for cats, which must all be met to achieve accreditation. Clinics are contacted annually for reaccreditation and to confirm that the criteria are still being met.
There is NO COST to clinics for becoming accredited or for being part of the Cat Friendly Clinic programme, but clinics must be an ISFM Practice Member to become accredited.
