Gold standard of care for cats
Animates Veterinary Clinics, a practice with clinics in Thurlby and Market Deeping, has received an award in recognition of the standard of care it provides to its feline patients.
The award has been made by International Society of Feline Medicine, the veterinary division of International Cat Care, a charity focused on raising standards of care for cats. It runs an international programme called Cat Friendly Clinic, which rates practices as Bronze, Silver or Gold in terms of the ‘cat-friendliness’ of the environment they offer.
Both of Animates’ clinics had to apply separately for the Award and both have been judged to have met the criteria for the top award - the Gold Standard. They are the first practices in Lincolnshire to have received it.
