Cat friendly practice


We appreciate that cats are not just small dogs at Maltman Cosham Veterinary Clinic and have put in place various facilities and protocols to try and make your cats visit to the clinic as stress free as possible.

Cat friendly features include a separate cat ward, veterinary nurses with a keen interest in feline behavior and we are able to arrange home visits if coming to the clinic is just too much for your cat.

We are at present a silver level holder of the cat friendly practice award this includes:

  • Premises of a good clinical standard with appropriate equipment
  • Staff who have a gentle, caring and empathetic approach to handling cats
  • Staff who are knowledgeable about and understand cats
  • A ‘Cat Advocate’ to answer any questions you have
  • A cat friendly waiting room
  • Ability to hospitalise cats, with comfortable bedding

Looking ahead

We are working towards the gold level of the cat friendly practice awards...
