Developed by “America’s Veterinarian,” Dr. Marty Becker, the Fear FreeSM
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. Learn more
