Cat Friendly Clinics

At Paragon we deal with all creatures great and small, but we are aware that the approach for handling, treating and examining must vary depending on the species and the individual animal; as such we have tried to adopt the Cat Friendly approach for our feline patients.

Paragon are an accredited Cat Friendly Clinic at Dalston. We have Cat-only clinics on a Thursday at Dalston

Being a Cat Friendly Clinic means that Paragon have reached a higher standard of cat care in that our staff:

  • Understand the needs of cats and have made visits to the vet clinic more cat friendly
  • Understand how to approach and handle cats gently and with care
  • Have good knowledge and equipment to manage the care of cats

Achieving Cat Friendly Clinic accreditation involved additional training and work for all staff; receptionists, nurses and vets. For more information please click here.

Each accredited clinic also has a ‘Cat Advocate’ – someone who ensures the cat friendly standards are adhered to, and who would be happy to talk to you. Ann Noble is our Cat Advocate













We recommend clients take some time to read the leaflets available from ISFM that can be found at the bottom of this page or here as these helpful guides can make Veterinary treatment for your cat less stressful.

Please use our separate cat waiting area when you visit the practice and make use of our cat towers for your cat baskets.
