Feline Friendly Practice
River Heights Veterinary Hospital has incorporated the guidelines of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and CATalyst Council to become a Cat-Friendly Hospital. We have a separate cat waiting area to minimize stress, our staff has specific recommendations to ease the stress of transporting your cat, and staff has been trained on how to approach and handle cats in ways that will make them comfortable. Moreover, we have an understanding of the unique healthcare needs of cats throughout the various stages of their lives, will encourage discussions with you geared to the life stage of your cat, as well as provide a checklist to ensure your cat has the opportunity to receive age-appropriate monitoring and interventions.
