Cat Friendly Clinic

Cat Friendly Clinic logoAt Rowan Vets, we understand that some cats and their owners find visiting the vets quite stressful. That’s why we’re committed to providing a cat-friendly environment at our practices.

We’re delighted to be an ISFM (International Society of Feline Medicine) Accredited Cat Friendly Clinic at our main practice on Hillock Lane, recognised for the exceptional level of care and consideration we provide to our feline patients. We ensure that we mirror the same cat care principles at our branch surgery in Blackpool.

Visiting Rowan Vets with your cat

We have taken steps to make any visit as stress free as possible for you and your cat, and are advocates of Fear Free® – an organisation founded upon the mission of preventing and alleviating fear, anxiety, and stress in pets. Learn more.

Cat only areas

At our main Hillock Lane practice, we have a separate cat waiting area and cat only consultation room specifically geared to the needs of our feline friends, and free from dog smells.

With a Feliway diffuser plugged in, releasing calming pheromones, this helps to put your cat at ease. Your cat is able to wander freely within the room, exploring and becoming familiar with the space or alternatively, most examinations can take place within the safety of their carrier providing the lid can be removed. Blankets are available on request from our Client Care team to cover cat carriers whilst in the waiting area.

We also have a cat only recovery room where our feline in-patients can relax on a comfortable bed in a quiet space, with plug-in pheromone diffusers for added calm.

Our Blackpool branch surgery also benefits from having separate cat and dog recovery rooms, and we are able to provide separation in our waiting area for nervous cats – just let our team know if you require this when you arrive. Both of our practices follow the same cat care principles.
