Fear Free Certified
Developed by “America’s Veterinarian,” Dr. Marty Becker, the Fear Free initiative aims to “take the ‘pet’ out of ‘petrified’” and get pets back for veterinary visits by promoting considerate approach and gentle control techniques used in calming environments.
Creating a fear free experience at our veterinary clinic means providing a calm, secure, and relaxed environment for your pet from the moment they walk in the door until they head back home, feeling better than ever. From the time they enter our clinic, we have set space for canines and felines to reduce tensions. Our team is also participating in a continuing education program to become fear free certified professionals. We want every single visit to be a fear free visit for your pet.
