Fear Free Certified
We are proud that our medical and resort team have all taken courses to be Fear Free certified. What this means is that we not only address your pet’s physical well being, but we also focus on emotional well being. We work to eliminate fear, stress and anxiety at every veterinary visit, and we also make time to discuss how these may impact your pet at home. We use individualized methods to make our exams more comfortable such as performing exams on non-slip surfaces on the floor, or on benches. We use appeasing pheromones throughout the hospital and a variety of food bribes and toys. The biggest difference is that we allow longer appointments, exercise a great degree of patience and never utilize significant restraint to accomplish treatments. Patient comfort is essential to proper healing.
