Tips for a Stress Free Visit

We strive to make sure each pet visit is Fear Free. When you are scheduling an appointment, please inform us if your pet suffers from stress or anxiety so we can make any necessary adjustments prior to arrival.


Pheromones such as Adaptil (dogs) and Feliway (cats) products that can help to calm your pet prior to arrival at the hospital. We offers pretreated bandanas for dogs and towels for cats that you are free to use during your visit and provide diffusers in the hospital as well. Sprays and diffusers are available for purchase at the hospital.

It is best if you can start using the pheromones at home prior to the car ride. Be sure to treat carriers with pheromones before putting your cat in to help alleviate any anxiety. Having your cat carrier out in the house with anytime access will help your cat get used to the carrier. Providing a soft bed and feeding treats will also help them associate positive experiences with the carrier.


Food can be a very positive experience for our patients! We give lots of treats to help reduce anxiety during visits – especially for those pets who dislike nail trims! We ask that you withhold food before your visit so that your pet is more likely to accept a treat while in the office and will associate the visit with a positive experience.

You may bring along your favorite treats from home or we have many different varieties as well. Please let us know ahead of time if your pet has any food allergies. If your pet has a favorite toy, please bring it along too!
