What is Fear Free™?
Fear Free™ is an approach taken by our veterinarian’s and our entire staff to help our patients have a positive experience with us and to avoid fear, stress, and anxiety. In short we are paying attention to the emotional well-being of our patients as well as their medical, surgical and dental needs.
Studies have shown that 25-50% of dogs and cats get stressed when they go to a veterinary hospital. We are committed changing that. There is a better way for our beloved dogs and cats.
We at South Salem Animal Hospital employ a softer, gentler and better approach and it works! We make a true difference every day by accepting and using Fear Free™ techniques. It makes our patients happier with less fear, stress and anxiety.
Everyone is friendly and cooperative. Many suggestions were given to me to provide the best quality of life for my dog, yet I was not pressured into doing all of them. Very pleasant experience for our family!
