Fear-Free Certified

In our continuous effort to provide the best care possible for your pets, we have been working hard over the last few months to have all of our veterinarians and most support staff become Fear Free Certified Professionals.

Not only have we received training on reducing fear, anxiety, and stress in your pets, but we have made modifications to our procedures and handling to ensure that your pets feel safe while they receive the treatment they need. All of our teams have certified members so that you can expect consistent, low-stress techniques throughout your time in the clinic.

Being Fear Free Certified Professionals is just the beginning of our journey, and we are actively working towards becoming a Fear Free Certified Clinic!

About Fear Free

Developed by “America’s Veterinarian,” Dr. Marty Becker, the Fear FreeSM initiative aims to “take the ‘pet’ out of ‘petrified’” and get pets back for veterinary visits by promoting considerate approach and gentle control techniques used in calming environments.

Utilization of Fear Free methods and protocols leads to reduction or removal of anxiety triggers, which creates an experience that is rewarding and safer for all involved, including pets, their owners, and veterinary health care teams.
