There is a movement growing within the veterinary industry. It's a movement born from the realization that a pet's stress level has an intimate relationship with the level of care a veterinary practice can provide them. Many pets become anxious during visits to the vet. When an animal experiences stress, hormones are released that alter their blood pressure, body temperature, and heart rate. These are the same systems that veterinarians rely on to assess a pet's health. This can make it difficult to know whether a health issue is present, or if it's merely a stress response. That is why there is now an organization that accredits veterinarians as Fear Free certified professionals. These are veterinarian and staff who have re-thought the entire experience from the inside out. Special training, handling techniques, architecture, pheromones, and more are used to minimize any fear a pet experiences. We are proud to be one of the few. Because your pet is oh-so-worth-it.
