Cedar Creek Veterinary Clinic has Fear Free certified professionals. 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.
To become certified, veterinarians and veterinary staff are required to complete a comprehensive, 8-part educational course and exam. They also have to take continuing education to remain certified. The training and certification program helps veterinarians modify their procedures, handling, and facilities to help pets feel safe and comfortable while receiving the medical care they need. It is designed to ease the stress, fear, and anxiety so many pets experience while at the veterinarian.
Pet owners who would like their pets to experience the Fear Free difference can schedule an appointment by calling (517) 655-4906.
