The guidance applies veterinary shelter medicine principles to issues not infrequently faced by CP. The guidance is not a substitute for specific clinical judgement and veterinary advice for individual cats, as it is appreciated that all cases are different. The guidance and protocols do not translate to owned cats, where husbandry, infectious disease risks and feline stresses can differ significantly.

Vets may also find other sections on the website of specific interest, such as the neutering section and our public ‘essential’ and ‘veterinary’ guides.
