International Cat Care is a charity passionate about improving the care of all cats.
For over 60 years International Cat Care have been raising the standard of treatment and care provided to cats by veterinary surgeons, boarding cattery operators, those involved in rescue work, breeders and, of course, cat owners by providing the best information possible. Formerly known as the Feline Advisory Bureau (FAB), new name – International Cat Care – coincided with a dramatic increase in International Cat Care's international welfare work for unowned cats, demand for information from cat owners all over the world, and work with veterinary organisations worldwide.
Founded in 1969, IFAW has provided almost 50 years of global leadership, innovation and hands-on assistance to animals and communities in need. International Fund for Animal Welfare holistic conservation approach includes reducing the demand and exploitation of wildlife at the source; working together with communities and enforcers to shut down poaching networks; pioneering first-ever successes in the rescue, rehabilitation and release of orphan animals back into the wild; activating where needed most in the wake of global disasters; and advocating through expert research and solutions to the greatest threats to our planet’s populations and habitats.
Rehabilitation is the management of pain to restore movement via a broad range of skills and therapies. We do use painkillers, but as part of a broader clinical approach which aims to identify and treat the underlying cause of pain. Our team is led by a vet who is supported by physiotherapists, chiropractor, bowen therapists and hydrotherapists who work together as a team to ensure that your animal receives the most appropriate treatment.
Pet Sense provides behaviour consultations for dogs, cats and rabbits in and around Bristol and North Somerset. Problem prevention consultations and puppy training sessions are also available to help you gain a better understanding of your pet’s behaviour. Assessments of dogs and the homes of potential adoptive parents or foster carers can be provided. Pet Sense offers educational talks and workshops to dog training clubs, veterinary practices, rescue centres and other pet-related businesses.
