Gold Cat Friendly Clinic 2024

We are a Gold Certified Cat friendly clinic, the first in South Africa

Cat Friendly Clinic is a worldwide programme from the International Society of Feline Medicine, the veterinary division of the charity International Cat Care. They recognise that because of their unique nature and needs, taking cats to visit a veterinary clinic can be very stressful, both for cats and their caregivers. The Cat Friendly Clinic programme is designed to help address these issues by creating more cat friendly veterinary clinics and so reducing the stress for cats and making veterinary visits easier for caregivers as well.

We are so proud of our team and all their hard work to achieve the first ISFM International Gold Certified Cat-Friendly Clinic in South Africa!

We are beyond excited to announce that the Midlands Veterinary Hospital has been awarded an International Gold Standard as a Cat-Friendly Clinic, the 1st in South Africa & Africa!

What is a cat-friendly clinic?

An accredited Cat-Friendly Clinic has reached a higher standard of cat care in that the staff:

  • 🐱 Understand the needs of cats and have made visits to the vet clinic more cat-friendly
  • 🐱Understand how to approach and handle cats gently and with care
  • 🐱Have good knowledge and equipment to manage the care of cats

Achieving an International Cat-Friendly Clinic accreditation involves all staff, from receptionists, nurses, and kennel assistants, through to vets. Staff at every accredited clinic have promised to handle and treat cats with understanding, gentleness, and respect, and to make every effort to make the visit to the clinic as stress-free for you and your cat as possible.

We are so proud of our team and all their hard work to achieve this fantastic certification of International Standard.
