It can be stressful for both the cat and the cat owner to visit the veterinarian. The veterinary visit starts before you even arrive at the veterinary clinic with trying to get your cat in the carrier and the car ride to the practice. Click here for a cat friendly carrier option – this type of carrier makes it easier to get your cat in and out of by removing the top of the carrier completely.
Veterinary clinics are now becoming Cat Friendly Practices and Sand Creek Animal Hospital is proud to be one of them! This means that we have made changes to decrease stress and provide a more calming environment such as feline-only waiting areas and examination rooms.
Our health team members have also been trained in feline-friendly handling and understanding cat behavior in order to increase the quality of care for your cat.

By being designated as a Cat Friendly Practice, Sand Creek Animal Hospital has proven that we have taken specific extra steps to assure we understand a cat’s unique needs and have implemented feline-friendly standards as set by the American Association of Feline Practitioners.
