What is Fear Free?
Can you imagine telling your dog, “Let’s go to the vet!” and seeing her tail wag? How about getting out your cat’s carrier and seeing him come running?
Founded in 2016, Fear Free provides online and in-person education to veterinary professionals, the pet professional community, and pet owners. Our courses are developed and written by the most respected veterinary and pet experts in the world, including boarded veterinary behaviorists, boarded veterinary anesthesiologists, pain experts, boarded veterinary internists, veterinary technicians (behavior), experts in shelter medicine, animal training, grooming, boarding and more.
By closely listening to the needs of the profession and those of pet owners, Fear Free has become one of the single most transformative initiatives in the history of companion animal practice, providing unparalleled education on emotional well-being, enrichment and the reduction of fear, anxiety and stress in pets.
To become certified, veterinarians and veterinary staff are required to complete a comprehensive, 8-part educational course and exam. They also must take continuing education to remain certified.
“Fear Free has always been the way of Salty Paws. We strive to make all visits pleasant and stress free for both the pet and the owner. I am delighted that this kind of care is now nationally recognized. As of May 2018 our staff completed the specialized training and are now Fear Free certified.”
