Comprehensive Well-being 

“Taking the ‘Pet’ Out of Petrified”

Fear Free is more than a certification; it’s a revolutionary perspective on veterinary care, encompassing your pet’s physical and emotional well-being. At Pet Health, we prioritize Fear Free techniques to alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress, ensuring a positive veterinary experience for your pet.

Positive Reinforcement

Treats, Encouragement, and Kindness

Positive reinforcement is the cornerstone of our Fear Free approach. Every interaction from treats to verbal encouragement is designed to create a positive association with Pet Health, making your pet’s visit a rewarding experience.

Considerate Approach

Tailored to Your Pet’s Emotional State

Fear Free veterinary medicine is all about understanding your pet’s emotions. We consider your pet’s disposition and emotional state during each visit, ensuring a personalized approach. If your pet exhibits signs of stress, we may adapt the visit to make it more comfortable.

Gentle Control

Caring, Positive, and Patient

Our Fear Free practices prioritize gentle control. We’ve crafted a consistent approach emphasizing care, positivity, and patience. Your pet’s emotional health is never compromised for medical care at Pet Health.
