We would like to congratulate Jennifer, one of our Licensed Veterinary Technicians, for completing the Fear Free Certification Program. She is now recognized as a Fear Free Certified Professional!
What does this mean? This certification taught Jennifer many new techniques to help our patients feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible while visiting our hospital.
Jennifer would like to share the following:
“Since I was a young girl, I knew I wanted to help animals. I came into the veterinary field anxious to fulfill that desire. What I wasn’t prepared for was the fear and anxiety that many of our patients had when coming to the veterinary hospital.
Becoming Fear Free Certified has helped me recognize signs of fear, anxiety and stress exhibited in our patients and ways to help them feel more at ease, whether it be through considerate approach, gentle handling, natural supplements, pheromones and prescription medications where needed. I’m excited about this new approach and looking forward to helping our pets, one paw at a time!”
