As a testimony to our Quality Care approach, GVC was awarded the International Gold Standard Cat Friendly Clinic status in 2014. We are extremely proud to be the first clinic in the UAE and indeed the Middle East to have received and upheld this prestigious accolade. We all feel very passionately about treating cats in a “cat friendly” way and recognise that they are not small dogs, but actually have very specific emotional and physical needs. Dr Katrin and Dr Cicilia are currently enrolled in the specialist Feline Medicine Qualification and Nora, our Nurse Manager and Cat Advocate is currently enrolled in the Advanced Feline Nursing Diploma course. You can find out more about what it means to be “Cat Friendly” on the Cat Friendly Clinic page of this website.
