A popular Scotstoun veterinary centre has received a prestigious bronze award for its high quality of care for cats. 

Linnaeus-owned McDonalds Vets, which is part of the Pets’n’Vets family, has been recognised by the International Society for Feline Medicine (ISFM), an international charity dedicated to the wellbeing of cats. 

It’s a fitting reward for the McDonalds Vets team, which is committed to offering the highest standards of care and has put in place a series of measures to ensure all of their cat patients receive the finest treatment. 

These include ensuring all team members know about pet remedies and how they work so they can offer them to clients and use in the clinic.

It has also started recognising feline anxiety limits and is providing gabapentin before consultations, blood sampling and similar treatments. 

Additionally, McDonalds Vets has set aside a ‘feline only’ time once a week, when just cats are in the waiting room, plus staff provide towels in the waiting area for owners to cover their cat’s basket. 

Registered veterinary nurse Julie Busby, who is the cat advocate at McDonalds Vets in Scotstoun, said: “I am thrilled that McDonalds Vets has achieved bronze status from the ISFM, which is an endorsement of our commitment to our feline patients. 

“Our team is dedicated to ensuring our cat patients have a positive experience from the moment they enter the practice to the moment they leave.” 

Pets’n’Vets has seven practices in the Glasgow area including Roundhouse Veterinary Hospital, Pets’n’Vets Crookfur, Hairmyres Vets, Queens Park Vets, McDonalds Scotstoun, McDonalds Queen Margaret Drive and Blantyre Vets. For more information, visit: https://www.petsnvets.org
