North Florida Animal Hospital

Cat Friendly

The Cat Friendly Practice program is awarded through the American Association of Feline Practitioners, and is a global initiative intended to advance the care for cats by reducing stress and making practice visits more calm and enjoyable.


An achievement that means a lot to us was becoming a Gold Standard Cat Friendly Hospital through the American Association of Feline Practitioners. All pets are welcome, but we recognize that our cat friends in particular are sensitive to the stress experienced from travel to and in canine dominated hospitals. Being cat-friendly is achieved by educating our team on evidence-based feline medicine, standard of care guidelines and a feline friendly atmosphere, like “cat only” exam rooms and boarding areas.
