We provide the highest quality of care as is evidenced by our accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association which is a distinction that less than 15% of veterinary hospitals can claim.
Being accredited by AAHA means that Tender Touch Animal Hospital voluntarily has our hospital evaluated to ensure we meet the association’s high veterinary standards. This is our way of demonstrating our commitment to quality pet care. Less than 15% of all veterinary hospitals are accredited. By holding ourselves to these standards we can provide the best care for you and your pet.
Our veterinary staff have been trained in feline-friendly handling and understanding cat behavior in order to increase the quality of care for your cat.
When designated as a Cat Friendly Practice, veterinary clinics have proven they have taken specific extra steps to assure they understand a cat’s unique needs, have implemented feline-friendly standards, and have made changes to decrease stress and provide a more calming environment, such as feline-only waiting areas or exam rooms.
In the United States, there are millions more owned cats than owned dogs, yet cats visit veterinarians less frequently than dogs. A major reason is that it is very stressful to take cats to the veterinary practice and often owners believe their cat doesn’t need routine check-ups for wellness and preventive care. The Cat Friendly Practice (CFP) program provides a solution to this trend and provides an opportunity for veterinary practices to elevate care for cats and reduce the stress during the visit.
