Cat Friendly Vet Bend
Westside Pet Hospital has earned the Cat Friendly Practice certification from the American Association of Feline Practitioners.
The focus of the Cat Friendly program is to create a calmer environment to lessen the stress of taking your cat to the veterinarian. We have met a comprehensive checklist to verify that we are especially qualified and dedicated to making your cat’s every visit as pleasant as possible and beneficial for you.
To earn the Cat Friendly designation, we received training on how to approach and handle cats in a gentle, empathetic and caring manner. We have a special waiting room to separate your cat from dogs and other disturbances. We use a calming pheromone in our cat exam room to lessen anxiety.
We are also trained on how to help you and your kitty come see us. Prepared materials illustrate ways to make the veterinarian visit easier for the two of you. Continuing education on feline health issues, specialized equipment and a separate cat-friendly hospital ward exemplify the commitment we have made to be a Cat Friendly Practice.
Our goal is to provide you with various ways to enhance your cat’s health and well-being.

Part of our training to become a Cat Friendly Practice is to help you and your cat visit us. Call and we can send you a pamphlet about preparing for the visit. We also have samples of a synthetic pheromone that can help relax your cat for the trip.
