Fear Free is Key
We are a Fear Free certified practice. That means our team has undergone extensive training on how to reduce any fear, stress, or anxiety that your pet experiences during their visit. Everything from our hospital layout, to the music we play, to the pheromones we release, and the way our team handles and interacts with your pet are meant to provide as safe and trusting of an experience as possible.
We do it because we believe it’s the right thing to do. But it’s also a critical part of delivering gold-standard care. Elevated stress levels can alter a pet’s body temperature, blood pressure, and heart rate. These measurements are critical to assessing a pet’s overall health, meaning stress can make it difficult to know whether a real health issue is present or not.
