Break The Mold
We are part of a growing movement within the veterinary community and are proud to be the only Fear Free Certified Practice in Central, Florida. It is a movement that has recognized the important role that fear plays during your pet’s visit. So many dogs and cats become anxious during their appointment at the vet – it can even start on the car ride over! And besides this being difficult for a loving pet owner to see, this can actually make high quality medical care difficult. When an animal experiences stress, hormones are released in their body that affect their body temperature, blood pressure, and heart rate. These systems are relied on to assess your pet’s overall health. This can make it difficult to tell a healthy pet with a stress response from a sick pet. That is why we are proud to have veterinary professionals who have earned their Fear Free certification. Specialized handling techniques, training, architecture, pheromones, and other strategies blend together to substantially reduce the stress a pet exhibits here. This is a vision for the future of care. Because your pet is oh-so-worth-it.
