Fear Free

Fear Free

We know pets are afraid of the veterinarian—it’s just a fact of life. And while we can’t verbally communicate to your furry friends that we are here to help, we have taken a huge step to show them that we are the good guys: We are proud to share that our very own Dr. Shorenstein is Fear-Free-certified.


What is Fear-Free Certification?

If you’re unfamiliar with this approach, the Fear-Free Certification Program is a training course that helps veterinarians modify clinic procedures, handling, and facilities to help pets feel safe and comfortable while receiving the medical care they need.


How Does a Professional Get this Distinction?

For an individual to become a Fear-Free Certified Professional, they must complete the Fear-Free certification program, which consists of eight training modules. In these modules, Dr. Shorenstein learned better clinic procedures, handling techniques, and ways to make pets feel safer and more comfortable at their appointments. Click here for more information on Fear-Free Certification.
