Cat friendly practice


We aim always to be a cat friendly clinic.
The Ardmore Veterinary Group Sudbury branch has a dedicated fully air conditioned cat ward opened in 2012 for in patents and surgical day patients. We are aware that visits to the vets can be stressful, combining travelling with coming to a building other animals or their noises and smells. Please enquire about our 'quiet room' which may be available for use if the waiting room is busy. We also have a 'cat park' behind reception where they can wait once checked in for an appointment. You can also wait in the car if you think that would be best once you have checked in and the vet or nurse can come and get you when they are ready. 

We aim to provide as  low a stress environment as possible during your cat's visit to us.

We recognise that there are unique challenges and difficulties in bringing your cat to a veterinary clinic:

  • Cats often do not travel well
  • Cats do not feel safe when they are away from their normal home territory
  • Cats are highly sensitive to unusual sights, sounds and smells
  • Most cats prefer quiet and solitude
  • Most cats are highly susceptible to stress
  • Most cats are highly stressed by dogs being nearby in a veterinary clinic
  • Cats need to be handled gently, with care and respect in the clinic
  • When cats are hospitalised, considerable attention is needed to their unique requirements

We will be pleased to show you round the clinic, let you see ‘behind the scenes’, and explain to you and show you what we do to help improve cat care in the clinic.

All of this leads to a much better experience for your cat and you as their owners, and a higher quality of care.
