Downtown Veterinary Clinic utilizes methods and protocols to create an experience that is stress free and rewarding for all involved. We take pride in promoting gentle control techniques that reduce or remove any anxiety triggers. Our facility has been designed to cater to all types of pets and their needs using Fear Free techniques. A happy pet contributes to a better visit.
Fear Free visits start long before the visit to the vet. Pheromones can be used to calm the pet prior to the cage or leash coming out. At Downtown Veterinary Clinic, we believe quiet sounds and a lot of treats will ensure your pet feels comfortable. From there, the staff is trained in ways to continue the gentle approach to warrant a safe and efficient visit. We utilize sedation only as necessary.
At Downtown Veterinary Clinic we understand the unique needs of cats during a veterinary visit. Our staff is trained on how to approach and handle cats in a gentle, compassionate manner. We take pride in creating an environment with you and your cat in mind. When your cat is calm during a visit, we are able to provide higher quality examinations.
