THE PATTON VETERINARY HOSPITAL is leading the veterinary industry yet again, by being among the first in the entire country to become a FEAR FREE CERTIFIED PRACTICE!!!
After more than a year of preparations, we finally underwent our practice inspection 8-21-18. For the inspection, multiple levels of criteria were reviewed, staff knowledge was tested and after hours of the inspectors observation and digging, we are very proud to announce the prestigious certification of fear free!
But what does this means to you and your pet? Being a fear free facility signifies the entire practice is focused on making the entire veterinary experience as positive as possible for your pet. You may see significant differences, such as a separate cat area; to subtle differences, such as soft played music. However, with all of the adjustments made your pet will benefit the most as we focus on making his/her experience as positive as possible! For more information please visit the fear free website.
