We know a lot about cat body language. By paying close attention to their eyes, the position of their ears, their posture and how they carry their tail, you can tell how that feline is feeling.

The website of Dr. Sophia Yin, a veterinary behaviour specialist, has some great tools and information, especially about feline anxiety. If we can start to see the stress developing by reading body language, then we can change our approach in the clinic to make things less stressful for kitty.

If you prefer more explanations, the Veterinary Behaviorists have a great primer here.

Over the past few years, we’ve made some changes in the clinic to earn ‘Feline Friendly’ certification from the American Association of Feline Practitioners and we’re thrilled to be working on expanding our cat-friendly services.
