We understand that many pets are afraid of the vet – but it doesn’t have to be that way! And while we can’t verbally communicate to your furry friends that we are here to help, there are other steps we can take to show them that we are the good guys.
At Briargate Boulevard Animal Hospital, we are proud that many of our staff are Fear Free Certified professionals which means they have had specialized training that aims to alleviate stress, anxiety and fear while your pet is at our hospital.
It’s important for pets to be calm and relaxed during their visit not just for their own comfort, but also because a calm demeanor allows for more accurate exams and tests. To keep Fear Free Certification, our staff must take additional continuing education courses every year, meaning we’re always up-to-date on the latest care tips.
