Fear Free

Do you want your dogs and cats to live happy, healthy, full lives? Do you wish you knew how to make that happen for them? We all love our pets and want what’s best for them throughout their lives. But we aren’t always equipped with the right tools, information, education or resources to truly fulfill on that goal. Take, for example, visits to your veterinary hospital. Why is it that for many of us and our pets, veterinary visits evoke feelings of fear, anxiety and stress? What if a veterinary visit could be something you and your pet look forward to?

This is where Fear Free comes in. Our mission is to alleviate fear, anxiety and stress in pets and educate and inspire the people that care of them. Fear Free focuses on both the physical and emotional well-being of your pets, and aims to take the pet out of petrified.  You visit with us will be full of so many thoughtful details to alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress.  You will see layering of calming pheromones, calming music, warm towels, catnip, high reward treats, and staff that exhibit gentle handling and intrinsic knowledge of pet body language and behavior.

We take our commitment to Fear Free At VMC seriously!!  Every staff member involved in animal handling in our practice has become a Fear Free Certified Professional℠.  Accept nothing less for your pet’s veterinary care.  Look for the Fear Free Certified Professional℠ logo whenever you are seeking veterinary care for your pet.
