What is Stress-Free Care?

Stress-free care is designed to put your companion more at ease from the moment they walk in the door. Together, our veterinarians and team members implement a variety of techniques and protocols to make our animal hospital a relaxing place for our visitors, especially those who are more anxious than most.

Here are some of the things we do to help pets feel calmer during treatment:

  • We use minimal restraint when we handle pets, and may sometimes take a more hands-off approach to build trust
  • Only one animal is taken back to our treatment area at a time for care
  • We are careful to avoid making sudden movements and abrupt sounds, which can increase stress in pets
  • Another technique we enjoy is talking to our patients in soft, reassuring voices…tone matters!
