American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) Gold Standard Feline Friendly Practice

South Forsyth Animal Hospital Routine medical care is just as important for cats as it is for dogs, but many pet owners are reluctant to bring their felines for veterinary care because it seems to be so stressful for them. At South Forsyth Animal Hospital we recognize that cats are not small dogs - they have special wants and needs. To support this, we have become a gold certified Feline Friendly Practice. This means that we have met the highest standards set by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP). These standards show that we have integrated a feline perspective into our practice, both in the physical environment of the practice as well as the way in which medical care is delivered. A separate cat waiting area, separate feline-only exam rooms, slower-paced physical exams, and minimization of restraint are examples of this integration. We know we cannot eliminate the stress you and your cat feel about a veterinary visit, but together we can significantly reduce it!

Both doctors are also members of the AAFP. To learn more about the American Association of Feline Practitioners, go to their website at www.catvets.com.
