Many dogs and cats experience stress during their visit to a veterinary practice. The anxiety they feel is uncomfortable and also jeopardizes patient care. This is because stress hormones affect an animal's heart rate, body temperature, and blood pressure. Veterinary professionals measure these functions in order to assess a pet's overall health. Stress hormones can make it difficult to know if there is a real health issue present or if it's merely stress, or worse... miss a health problem because it's assumed that stress is the cause.
We believe in a better way. With our team members taking part of a growing movement towards Fear Free care. In order to earn Fear Free accreditation, members of our team have undergone rigorous training and testing on how to lower stress levels of dogs and cats during their visits. From advanced handling techniques, to re-imagining their experience through their eyes, ears, and nose, to using advanced technology to improve comfort, and everything in between... here, we only have one standard: pioneering better patient care. Because your pet is oh-so-worth-it.
