The whole practice is designed with the intention of reducing the development of anxieties in patients which currently have no concerns when visiting the vet. It is also to create a less fearful environment for patients that already have anxieties. It can be achieved in the majority of cases with time, patience and lots of reward.
In a number of veterinary practices today there is a continual time pressure and increasing clinical caseload which sometimes moves the focus away from your pet and their experience with us. One of our main motivators for creating Ferndown Family Vets is to ensure your pets have an enjoyable experience so we have decided to provide longer consults and maintain a fear free focus.
There is now an official accreditation group named ‘Fear Free’ based in the US of which Aidan is an accredited practitioner. Ferndown Family Vets will train all its staff in this approach as we believe having the fear free approach consistent throughout the whole practice is of vital importance. It not only keeps your pet happy, this in turn allows us to get to know them better and as a result provide them with the level of care and attention they deserve.
Please don’t hesitate to book an appointment to come and experience for yourself.
