Fear Free

In everything we do, we believe in setting a new standard for veterinary medicine. We were the first veterinary practice in the state of Virginia to earn Fear Free certification. Fear Free is a growing movement within veterinary medicine that acknowledges the importance of a pet’s emotional experience during their visit. Pets who experience heightened stress during their visits go in less often. And, perhaps just as importantly, when a pet experiences a stress response, it affects their body temperature, blood pressure, and heart rate – the very same systems that veterinary professionals rely on to gauge a pet’s overall health. Gold-standard medicine requires a Fear Free approach. Here, you’ll get nothing less. Because your pet is oh-so-worth-it.
