WE ARE HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE ARE NOW A… 

YES! We are officially the first veterinary hospital in North Florida to become a Fear Free Certified Practice, and the only one in St. Johns County.  All of our staff, from Dr. Nieves, our Patient Care Coordinator, our Certified Veterinary Technician, to our Hospital Director, is a Fear Free Certified Professionals.

What does this all mean to you and your pet?

A trip to the vet shouldn’t be an experience that fills your pet with fear. In fact, the last thing we want is for your pet to fear the one place that is fully committed to ensuring they live a happy and healthy life! Our mission is to make coming to the vet a happy and stress-free experience for the whole family and we do this through a series of steps-from your home to the car to your visit and your trip home again.

We think the Fear Free certification program says it best: “Fear Free visits eliminate fear, anxiety and stress, and create an experience that is better and safer for all involved, including pets, owners and veterinary health care teams.”

Here are a few things we are dedicated to for a Fear Free Visit:

  • Reducing or removing anxiety triggers that can cause pets to become fearful at home, in transport or at the hospital.
  • Helping clients deliver calm pets to our hospital.
  • Enhancing the quality of medicine in our practice.
  • Improving safety for our amazing veterinary team.

We’re happy to answer any questions!
