Fear Free Certified Professional

help make your pet's visit better every time.

Is your pet showing signs of bad stress and anxiety before arriving at the veterinary office? We are proud to have Fear Freesm certified professionals on our team and are dedicated to caring for your pet’s emotional well-being as well as his or her physical well-being.  Some ways we can help:

Ask us if pre-visit sedation or supplements might take the edge off and keep your pet happy and relaxed.

Would your pet be more comfortable waiting in the car rather than the waiting room? Just let us know, and we’ll be glad to accommodate you.

You can bring your pet to the clinic early and we can bring your pet into the exam room a few minutes before your pet will be seen so that you can spend some calm time together and your pet can explore the room.

Special calming chemical signals, known as pheromones, are infused throughout the room. Only dogs and cats can smell them, and they find them relaxing.

Music in the room is also specially created for canine and feline stress reduction.

We will keep our voices low and calm, and refrain from using any force to examine, test, or treat your pet. We’ll use gentle control techniques, innovative tools, and medication when necessary to ensure your pet’s emotional health isn’t sacrificed for the sake of medical care.

Unless it’s medically inappropriate, we’ll be giving your pet lots of treats during the visit. This is so he or she starts associating a trip to the veterinarian with good things! That will keep stress levels low. Bringing your pet into the appointment hungry can help this process along!

Some pets prefer to be examined up high, on the table, in your lap, in their carrier, or on the floor. We’ll go where we need to go to make your pet comfortable during the exam. We’ll also use specialized distraction techniques to keep your pet focused on good experiences while we perform procedures such as injections that might cause brief stress or pain.
