What is Fear Free?
Fear Free is a new way forward in veterinary medicine. It is the focus on significantly reducing the stress and anxiety that a pet feels during their visit. This is important for a number of reasons. First and foremost, heightened stress levels alter your pet’s physiology – affecting their blood pressure, heart rate, and body temperature. Veterinarians rely on these systems to diagnose your pet, so stress can actually hide an important problem, or make it difficult to know whether or not there is an underlying problem in the first place. Also, many pet owners are reluctant to bring their pet in for visits when they sense their dog or cat has a large fear response. This protective behavior is totally understandable, but it can jeopardize the health of the pet.
So what is Fear Free? Simple… it’s the future. So come on in and see for yourself.
