There is a burgeoning movement within the industry. A movement centered on the belief that a pet’s emotional experience during their veterinary visit is a necessary step to gold-standard medicine. Many dogs and cats experience fear during visits to the vet. Unfamiliar animals, sights, sounds, and smells create a stress response. Their bodies then produce stress hormones which alter their body temperature, blood pressure, and heart rate. Veterinary professionals measure these systems to assess a pet’s overall health, creating a serious obstacle in diagnostics.
Not here. We are proud to be at the vanguard of the growing Fear Free movement. Our veterinary hospital is one of the few Fear Free Certified Practices around. It means thinking deeply about your pet’s experience. It means having every member of our team on board with this mission. Because when it comes to your pet, only the best will do.
