Fear Freesm is an educational program designed for veterinary professionals that focuses on the mental and emotional well-being of our canine and feline patients. The program consists of eight courses that, combined, provide the knowledge and tools necessary for veterinary professionals to reduce fear, anxiety, and stress in patients and their owners.

As an investment in improving our practice, we paid for all of our staff, from our receptionists to our kennel techs, to be trained and certified in Fear Freesm protocols. We want to make sure that your pet’s visit, from veterinary services to boarding, is the best it can be for both you and your pet. The last thing we want is for your pet to fear the one place that is fully committed to ensuring they live a happy and healthy life!
