Fear Free Vaccinations

APPOINTMENT
So many of our pets demonstrate fear when coming to the veterinary hospital. Many people incorrectly believe that their pet will grow out of their anxiety, unfortunately the truth is that pets in fact grow into their anxiety with it getting worse overtime if it is left unchecked.

We are passionate about having our patients enjoy their vet visits and so our whole team take a fear free approach to veterinary care. A fear free approach to veterinary care means we not only address the physical wellbeing of our patients, but also their emotional wellbeing.

We are proactive about reducing the stress around veterinary care and will utilise a combination of pheromones, supplements, medications, gentle handling techniques and co-operative care training to provide excellent health care to our patients. The less stressed our patients are, our physical examination will be more thorough, our test results will be more reliable, and patients and their families will be happier to see us.

Preventative care is an important part of keeping our pets healthy and monitoring their health overtime. It is often easier to prevent illness than treat it once it has taken hold.

Fear Free In Home Vaccinations

If your pet is too fearful to be vaccinated during this visit, we may recommend that your pet is prescribed a pre-visit pharmaceutical (situational anxiety medication) to help them better cope with their vet visit and the injection.
