Find a Veterinarian and Practice

Veterinary clinics designated as Cat Friendly Practices® have proven they take extra steps that show they understand your cat’s unique needs. The program is designed to:

  • Help reduce the stress from visit to the veterinarian.
  • Improve the quality of care provided.
  • Support the veterinary team so that the entire staff has the knowledge and resources to understand cats’ distinct needs and behaviors.

AVSAB has a search for a consultant; however, their website is having some problems. It does not currently search by distance at all, however; you must search by City and State, and then by City, ST., in case they abbreviated in their address.

Low Stress Handling® Provider search

From the Low Stress Handling website:

What is Low Stress Handling® Certification?

The purpose of this Certification in Low Stress Handling® is to provide the teaching content needed to understand and improve the individual or hospital’s ability to create a low stress environment and handle animals in a less stressful manner. Coursework for this Certification goes beyond the teaching available from Dr. Yin’s book (with complementary DVD) Low Stress Handling, Restraint and Behavior Modification of Dogs & Cats and related training videos. While these sources include improvements to the hospital’s design, to its preparation of and for the patient prior to a visit, and to its use of tools and sedative agents, a large portion of Low Stress Handling relies on the development of important hands-on skills.
