Fear Free Vet Visit

Today we had our annual exam with the new fear free certified vet. There is no waiting room. You are immediately put into the exam room. You also check out in the exam room. Therefore, the entire reception area chaos is avoided. Just thought others might want to know what a fear free visit involves. I have to admit it was a good experience.

Our vet in Knoxville uses a diffuser that sprays Adaptil, a synthetic hormone that imitates the smell of a nursing mother. They also titer. Choosing a vet is such an important part of dog ownership.

This vet said they diffuse some pheromones so I guess this is similar. I agree...choice of vet is so important. Although the fear free treatment is a nice touch, IMO the qualities of the vet are what is most critical.

I definitely agree. I love my vet but we are small town. My daughter's vet is awesome and so updated. I would switch but I don't want a vet that is 45 minutes away in another city. If I ever move I will definitely switch to my daughter's vet.

Note that some holistic vets work remotely. This could be useful for certain conditions like allergies, etc. if you do not feel your vet is meeting your needs. And some of them will work with your local vet.
