Cats@Severn Vets is a new venture in the heart of Worcester set up by the six-site practice to cater for its increasing number of cat-owning clients.

Confidence boost

The team’s efforts have been given the seal of approval from the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM), which has awarded Cats@Severn its highest gold standard cat friendly status.

Owner Caroline Queen said: “The ISFM gold accreditation shows we offer gold-standard facilities and care for our feline patients. It is a boost of confidence for our staff, clients and patients.”

The Cat Friendly Clinic programme is designed to help create more cat friendly veterinary clinics that reduce the stress for cats and make visits easier for owners.
