Creating Less Stressful Environments for Cats

Heather Lewis’ latest article for the Impromed E-Newsletter is about the new standards for cat housing in the animal sheltering world and how these new ideas can be applied to the veterinary world.

Cats are easily stressed in new environments, particularly ones like the vet’s office.  Housing cats in caging that provides them with defensible space, a 3-foot separation between their food and their litter and placing caging in a quieter area of your hospital can help to reduce the illnesses that cats can develop when stressed.

Heather’s full article can be found at Impromed E-Newsletter.
