What is Fear Free?
Founded in 2016, the Fear Free initiative aims to "take the 'pet' out of petrified" and get pets back for veterinary visits by promoting considerate approach and gentle control techniques used in calming environments. Utilization of Fear Free methods and protocols leads to reduction or removal of anxiety triggers, which creates an experience that is rewarding and safer for all involved including pets, their owners and veterinary health care teams.
