Hamilton Animal Hospital is an AAFP Cat Friendly hospital
We understand how stressful it can be for our pets to come to see the veterinarian, and our feline patients can be especially challenging. Just getting out the cat carrier can send your kitty running for the hills. This is why the doctors and staff of the Hamilton Animal Hospital are working hard to provide a low stress environment for our feline patients. With the help of the AAFP (American Association of Feline Practitioners) the doctors and staff have the knowledge, training in feline friendly handling techniques, equipment and the environment to make your visit as low stress as possible for you and your cat.
We have feline only designated areas (waiting area, exam room and a feline only ward) where your cat will have a quiet environment during their stay with us.
The AAFP has also provided educational videos with useful tips on how to get your cat to the vet, the importance of regular veterinary checkups, and how a cat friendly practice can help you and your cat.
