Boehringer Ingelheim has announced new partnership with the CatCareforLife program. The program was set up in April 2018 by the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM), the veterinary division of the UK-based charity International Cat Care (ICC).
Both Boehringer Ingelheim and ICC share a common commitment in providing support for veterinarians and cat owners alike to ensure cats enjoy longer, happier and healthier lives, through an effective and tailored preventive healthcare approach.
The CatCareforLifeprogram sits alongside the Cat Friendly Clinic program which offers internationally-recognised standards to help reduce stress of cats during veterinary visits. It is a lifelong partnership of care between cat owners and veterinary clinics through all life stages, from kittens through to old age.
Shawn Hooker, head of strategic business unit pet vet at Boehringer Ingelheim, said: “We are passionate about the lifelong well-being of cats, and are proud to support the CatCareforLifeprogram. We share a common goal with ISFM to ensure that all cats receive optimal veterinary care throughout their lives, with regular, stress-free health checks and preventive healthcare, and with early diagnosis and treatment of disease. This is the best way of protecting the health of the cat and preserving the human-animal bond.”
Through this partnership, Boehringer Ingelheim said it will actively promote this worldwide initiative and develop practical and informational tools and services to enhance veterinarians’ and cat owners’ knowledge.
