As a cat owner, you want the best for your feline friend, including the best veterinary care.

At River Rock Animal Hospital, we are proud to be recognized as a Cat-Friendly Practice by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP). This designation means we have taken specific steps to provide a comfortable and stress-free experience for our feline patients.

From Purrfect Facilities to Specialized Staff: Discover Why We're a Cat-Friendly Practice

The AAFP Cat-Friendly Practice program focuses on making veterinary visits less stressful for cats and their owners. To earn this designation, our clinic has met rigorous standards in the following areas:

Facility and Equipment

Our clinic has a dedicated area for feline patients that is separate from other animals. We also have specialized equipment to ensure the safety and comfort of our feline patients.

Staff Training

Our veterinary team has completed specialized training in feline-friendly handling and care. We understand that cats have unique needs and behaviors, and we work to make their visit as stress-free as possible.

Patient Care and Management

Our clinic uses techniques to minimize stress and fear in our feline patients, including the use of pheromone therapy, gentle handling, and individualized patient care plans.

Client Communication

We provide resources and information to help our clients better understand their cat's behavior, health, and needs. This includes education on feline nutrition, behavior, and preventive care.
At River Rock Animal Hospital, we are committed to providing the best possible care for our feline patients. Our AAFP Cat-Friendly Practice designation is just one example of our commitment to excellence. If you have a feline friend needing veterinary care, we invite you to schedule an appointment with us.
