Fear Free

We’re Working to become Fear Free so your pets can be fear free too!

Oakview Veterinary Medical Center is proud to follow Fear Free practices!

Pets come stressed for all sorts of reasons when they have to go to the vet. Some pets don’t travel well, they can be sensitive to unfamiliar animals, sights, smells, and sounds, and sometimes they just don’t feel safe when they are away from home.

By working toward our Fear Free Certification, our staff has undergone training to ensure we always address these concerns and raise the standards of pet care. Founded by “America’s Veterinarian,” Dr. Marty Becker, and developed by hundreds of experts in behavior, medicine, and handling, Fear Free has become one of the single most transformative initiatives in the history of companion animal practice.

Our goal as we move toward our Fear Free Practice certification is to make your pets feel comfortable and reduce stress as much as possible when they visit Oakview Veterinary Medical Center.

Being Fear Free can start at home. Learn more about what you can do at home here https://www.fearfreehappyhomes.com or watch the video below to learn how you can enjoy veterinary visits with your pets!
