What is Fear Free?
We now understand so much more about our pets' emotional well-being,
and the impact on your pet's health and happiness from stress, anxiety, and fear.
Using methods and techniques developed by behavioral scientists we strive to reduce fear, anxiety and stress in your pet.
Our team has been certified in the latest Fear Free methods to reduce anxiety in your pet before, during, and after their visit to the vet. They will work with you to identify the techniques that work best for your pet.
Some of the various methods we use are:
- Gentle control
- Positive conditioning
- Naturopathic remedies
- Feliway pheromone spray
- Pheromone diffusers
- Adaptil sprays and collars
Reducing stress starts at home.
When natural remedies aren’t enough
If we have found no success with the naturopathic rememdies, we will discuss with you the option of giving medication at home to help reduce anxiety. Administering medications prior to an appointment with the vet can help your pet to have a more positive experience. As your pet experiences more positive visits, we can introduce the naturopathic remedies with greater success ultimately looking to decrease the pre-visit medications.
