The Kulshan Veterinary Hospital in Lynden has been recognized as a “cat-friendly practice” by the American Association of Feline Practitioners.
The veterinary practice is the fifth in Washington state to receive the recognition, and so far, the only practice to do so in Whatcom County.
The AAFP initiated its recognition program to improve the health and overall well-being to the growing nationwide feline population. According to the association, there are more than 86 million cats kept as pets in American homes.
Cat-friendly practices are designed to be less stressful to cats and specially adapted to their needs.
“We are committed to providing quality care to our patients,”said Jessica Bunch, veterinarian at Kulshan Veterinary Hospital, in a press release. “When we heard about AAFP’s Cat Friendly Practice Program, we knew it was time to take a fresh look at the practice to determine what could be done to make the veterinary visit more positive for cats and cat owners. We evaluated every aspect of the practice and its environment from the perspective of the cat. We can proudly say that from the minute they walk through the door, our patients and clients will be part of a welcoming, comfortable experience that will ultimately lead to the improved health of our feline patients.”
