How to take a suitable video or photo

  • Photo instructions: Ensure the cat’s face is as level with the camera as possible, facing directly in to it, but avoid making sounds or movements to get the cat’s attention. Avoid restraining the cat – if necessary please enlist the help of a second person to gently place their hands either side of the cat’s shoulders. Try to minimise background noise/disturbance. Stand about 1 metre away. Ensure the flash is turned off.
  • Video instructions: Start recording when the front view of the cat’s face is directly facing in to the camera. If the cat moves its head during filming, please gently move the camera in the same direction in order to keep the front view of the cat’s face in the camera as much as possible. Please film the cat for about 30-40 seconds.
  • File naming instructions: Please ensure your videos and photos are labelled as follows: number of file, name of your practice, name of cat, cat’s gender, date of birth, in pain or no pain, for example 1.VetsAndPets.Barry.male.1-11-2000.nopain.
