Advanced Veterinary Medical Center wants to see more cats, more often!
AVMC prides themselves on being a AAFP (American association of Feline Practitioners) practice. AAFP’s mission is improving the health and welfare of cats through high standards of practice, continuing education, and evidence-based medicine. Here at AVMC, Dr. Rozenbaum is a certified AAFP Vet. We have a specific door for our cat friends to come through and a special room just for them. We have a feliway plug in, as well as feliway sprayed towels to help our cats feel comfortable when coming into this new environment. Feliway is a pheromone that only affects cats. Feliway helps reduce signs of stress during Veterinary visits and hospitalization. On top of that, we added a climber with toys so our cat’s can climb around and have fun while waiting. We love seeing cats and can’t wait to see more cats.
If you have any additional questions about our practice, please don’t hesitate to call us at (248) 478-5400.
You don’t have to be a veterinarian to know that cats are very different than dogs. But the reality is that most veterinary practices, when looked at from a pet’s perspective, are designed with dogs in mind. This makes sense when considering that most practices see so many more dogs than cats. If our goal is to have more cats get the care they deserve, then we need to start thinking about our practice from a cat’s perspective. This is where the Cat Friendly Practice Criteria come in. In order to apply for the program, a practice must meet several criteria in each of ten different areas:
- Staff Training & Continuing Education / Client Communications
- Veterinary Practice / Waiting Room
- Feline Handling & Interaction with Clients
- Examination Room & Clinical Records
- Wards Facilities
- Pain Management / Operating Room & Anesthesia
- Surgical Equipment & Dentistry
- Diagnostic Imaging & Laboratory Facilities
- Treatment / Health & Safety
- Preventative Care by Life Stages.
Advanced Veterinary Medical Center encourages all cat owners to call their veterinarians this week to schedule wellness exams for their cats.
The nationwide “Have we seen your cat lately?” awareness program is sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc.
