It's official —Norwell Veterinary Hospital has been approved by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) as a Cat Friendly Practice – Silver Status!
We recently underwent some major renovations in an effort to achieve this high standard of feline friendliness, including adding brand new cat condos and play area for boarding, as well as exclusive feline waiting area and exam rooms. Learn more about our feline boarding services here.
According to the AAFP, there are millions more pet cats than there are pet dogs in the United States, but cats visit veterinarians much less frequently. This is mostly due to the stress associated with getting the cat to the vet and owners who are unaware of the importance of preventive care. The Cat Friendly Practice program helps to provide a solution to this trend. There are two levels a practice may obtain — Silver or Gold.
The AAFP is a professional organization that is dedicated to advancing the field of feline medicine and surgery by setting the standards of feline care through practice guidelines, position statements, and by providing continuing education.
