Lake Norman’s Cat Friendly Practice

Cat owners love their cats, but don’t usually love the idea of taking their feline to the vet. That’s probably why cats account for only 20% of vet visits nationwide. But cats need preventive care as much as dogs. A checkup with a vet is the best way to detect serious disease in advance, and improve long-term health.

That’s why we’ve made it less stressful and easier for your cat to get the care he or she needs. Lakecross Veterinary is the first, and only, gold-certified Cat Friendly Practice in the Lake Norman region.

What Is A Cat Friendly Practice?

The American Association of Feline Practitioners started the Cat Friendly Practice program as a way to endorse veterinary practices who are going above and beyond to provide specifically cat-focused care.

Our Cat Friendly Care

As a part of the certification process, our veterinarians and staff gained unique insight regarding how to understand the specific needs of cats. This includes knowing how to interpret a cat’s facial expressions and body language and also being trained in alternate techniques to calm an anxious cat and ensure that exams and procedures do not escalate anxiety.

We are confident that from the minute your cat enters our door, he or she will immediately be part of a welcoming, comfortable experience that will ultimately lead to improved health for your pet.
