Selwood Achieves Gold Cat Friendly Clinic Accreditation

5 March 2019

Selwood House is pleased to announce that we have been awarded the highest standard of Cat Friendly Clinic Accreditation from the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM).

Gold Accreditation involves proving rigorous adherence to a set of criteria which includes clinic facilities and protocols aimed at reducing stress in cats, both as in-patients and out-patients. These include, for instance, separate dog and cat waiting areas, a separate cat ward, comfortable cat-friendly hospitalisation cages and veterinary equipment specifically designed for cats.

By achieving Cat Friendly Clinic Gold accreditation, Selwood House has demonstrated a commitment to the highest standards of feline care with specific feline-behaviour training, expertise, and compassion. This ensures maximum safety and comfort of our cat patients and minimal stress during visits to the clinic.

A huge thank you and congratulations to the whole team and in particular to Nurse Tonya who helped us achieve this international recognition and a Blue Mountains first!
