What is Fear-Free?

Emergency treatment and first aid for pets should never be used as a substitute for veterinary care. But it may save your pet's life before you can get your pet to a veterinarian.

Vaccines are health products that trigger protective immune responses in pets and prepare them to fight future infections from disease-causing agents. Vaccines can lessen the severity of future diseases and certain vaccines can prevent infection altogether. Today, a variety of vaccines are available for use by veterinarians.

Snacks add up!


You love your dog - and your dog LOVES treats! But feeding Fido 'human food' isn't always the greatest idea. We're not talking apple slices here...we're talking cookies, cheese and hot dogs. Take a look at how the calories can add up!

Dental health is a very important part of your pet's overall health, and dental problems can cause, or be caused by, other health problems. Your pet's teeth and gums should be checked at least once a year by your veterinarian to check for early signs of a problem and to keep your pet's mouth healthy.

After a successful vet visit, pet owners with other pets at home may sometimes be less than welcome to the returning furkids because of smells they bring back from the clinic and car ride. These are some ways to manage a successful return back to their home and fur-family.

A Fear Free veterinary visit starts before the arrival in the clinic. For dogs with car anxiety and for cats with crate/ carrier anxiety, it is a good idea to acclimatise them to these transport means for the vet visits or other visits in general.

We are proud to have Fear Free CertifiedĀ® Professionals on our team. Our practice is dedicated to caring for your pet's emotional and physical wellbeing. We'd like you to know how we meet that goal.
