Gold Certified Cat Friendly Practice

We’ve earned the highest level Cat Friendly Practice distinction by meeting a comprehensive set of standards set by the American Association of Feline Practitioners.  These standards cover everything from the way we hold your cat during an examination, how your cat is treated and housed during hospital stays, to advanced continuing education in feline medicine for our veterinarians and team.

FrancoCalThe team at Adobe Animal Hospital has been specifically trained to care for your cat with slow, gentle, and quiet technique.  We will always keep your wait time short, and have separated waiting areas for cats and dogs. Our exam rooms are free of odors and noise that might bother your cat, and we use a calming feline facial pheromone spray in the rooms.  We have lots of soft blankets they can hide in to feel more secure, and catnip and treats to help make their visit a more positive experience.

Our hospital is designed to have multiple quiet areas where treatments can be performed without pets being disturbed by noises, or other cats or dogs,  and hospital wards for dogs and cats are separate.

You are an important member of your cat’s healthcare team. You can be instrumental in helping your cat have more relaxed veterinary visits and improved healthcare. See our tips page for some ideas to make transport of your cat a little easier.

 A trip to the veterinarian with your kitty can be a cause of  stress. However, cats NEED regular veterinary visits in order to live longer, happier, and healthier lives. And who doesn’t want that? This new video series offers a glimpse into why it’s important to bring your cat to the veterinarian, as well as how Cat Friendly Practices can benefit both you and your cat: Videos for Cat Owners.

Vaccines: We always tailor our preventative care recommendations to the age, breed, health, and lifestyle of your cat.We follow the  vaccination guidelines set by the American Association of Feline Practitioners, and we only use non-adjuvanted vaccines in cats.We feel very strongly that only non-adjuvanted vaccines should be used in cats, as they reduce the risk of injection site tumors.
