Fear Free Certified

Fear Free Certified

We know pets are afraid of the veterinarian—it’s just a fact of life. And while we can’t verbally communicate to your furry friends that we are here to help, we have taken a huge step to show them that we are the good guys: we are proud to say that Dunckel Veterinary Hospital is now a Fear-Free Certified practice!  Since we became Fear-Free certified, we have been incredibly pleased with the client and patient responses to our tactics for reducing fear and anxiety.

What is Fear Free Certification?

If you’re unfamiliar with this achievement, the Fear-Free Certification Program is a training course that helps veterinarians modify clinic procedures, handling, and facilities to help pets feel safe and comfortable while receiving the medical care they need.

How Does a Practice Get this Distinction?

To become Fear Free Certified, all aspects of our hospital were evaluated, including culture, leadership, client education, facilities, patient visits, staff training and more. Additionally, a Fear Free Practice Certification Veterinarian performed an on-site visit where they reviewed and then ultimately approved us.
