Cat Friendly Practice®

We’re here to help make each visit the best it can be!

Did you know that the cat is America’s #1 companion?

In fact, Americans own 10 million more cats than dogs! The problem is that cats see the veterinarian less frequently than dogs. At Veterinary Care of Ithaca, we know how important it is for your pet to feel comfortable. As a member of the Cat Friendly Practice® group, we’ve instituted several measures to calm our feline friends, including white noise machines.

The Cat Friendly Practice® Program is leading the movement to make veterinary care less stressful for cats and their caregivers. The Cat Friendly Practice® Program was developed to help veterinarians address the unique needs of cats in veterinary practice.

Established by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) and the International Society for Feline Medicine (ISFM), the Cat Friendly Practice® Program is a global initiative designed to elevate care for cats by reducing the stress for the cat, caregiver, and also the entire veterinary team.
