Cat friendly veterinary care at PenBay Vets and what it means for your cat.

PenBay Veterinary Associates has joined with the American Association of Feline Practitioners to promote better healthcare for cats. The association has certified our office as a Silver-level Cat Friendly Practice.

As a Cat Friendly Practice, we spend extra time and effort to help cat owners provide a healthy life for their feline friends. We also are trying to minimize the stress a veterinary visit places on both cats and their owners. The designation also means we have a member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners (Dr. Bjorn Lee) on staff and that we have the equipment and staff knowledge to provide cat healthcare.

The Cat Friendly Practice program was launched in 2012 to improve cat health nationally. Although there are more owned cats than dogs in the U.S., almost twice as many cats as dogs never visit a veterinarian. Some 60 percent of cat owners say their cats hate going to the veterinarian, and 38 percent say they get stressed just thinking about visiting a vet.

Our aim is to:

  • Educate cat owners about feline behavior and the value of veterinary care.
  • Minimize the stress a veterinary visit can cause cats and their owners.
  • Provide resources to practices to address the particular needs of cats

We love cats and are always looking for ways to improve our level of service. Please let us know how we can make your visit better for you and your pet. An annual or bi-annual exam for your cat can improve your cats quality of life dramatically! Cats, more than dogs, hide signs of illness.  Our doctors and staff are specially trained to examine your cat and talk with you to identify his or her overall health. Together we can catch illness and diease early before it becomes life-threatening, saving time, money and discomfort. If your cat hasn't been to the veterinarian in the past 12 months please schedule an appointment so we can help you keep your feline friend healthy for many years.
