Learn how to take the “pet” out of petrified
Our staff is Fear Free Certified and Low-Stress Handling Certified. If your dog or cat has learned to fear veterinary or grooming procedures, we can help! Animals of all ages can unlearn fear of purposeful touch, veterinary and grooming tools and equipment.
Did you know that a fear free veterinary visit begins at home? Teaching your cat or dog to be comfortable in his carrier/crate and acclimating him to the car ride will ensure that your pet is stress free when he arrives at the veterinary clinic.
Fear Free Pet Classes
How you handle your pet in the waiting room and how you condition him to purposeful touch and tools typical of veterinary exams and grooming procedures will ensure your pet’s success. The You & Me Fear Free Class will show you how to make veterinary visits stress free for your pet. This class is also available as an in-home program for our feline friends and for dogs who may be uncomfortable in a group of their peers.
