Tips for Fear Free Visits

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, there are other steps we have taken to show them that we are the good guys.

At Garden Valley Veterinary Hospital, we are proud to state that our employees are Fear Free Certified!

It’s important for pets to be calm and relaxed during their visit not just for their own comfort, but also because a calm demeanor allows for more accurate exams and tests. To keep Fear Free Certification, our staff must take additional continuing education courses every year, meaning they’re always up to date on the latest care tips.

We’re here for your pets, and we are proud to be Fear Free Certified. If you have any questions about this certification and what it entails, contact us at 970-674-5105.
