Our Fear Free Approach

Our "Fear Free" Approach

What does it mean?

Petvacx strives to provide the best clinic experience for both our furry friends and pet parents which is why we practice a fear free approach with all our patients. "Fear free" is the concept of practicing veterinary medicine that involves the reduction of feelings of stress in our patients which in return will result in a better experience for all involved — including pets, owners, and the veterinary team. Upon arrival our client care specialists will offer your pets either a Feliway sprayed blanket to place over your cats carrier or an adorable printed bandana sprayed with Adaptil to place on your dogs collar. The phermones sprayed on your pets blanket and bandana will start working while your waiting in the lobby to be called into the exam room.

Feliway

Feliway mimics the natural facial pheromone that cats use to mark their territory as safe. Going to the vet can be very stressful for cats: the carrier, the car ride, the exam and clinic sounds. Feliway help to alleviate signs of stress and anxiety associated with veterinary visits and travel.



Adaptil

Adaptil mimics the natural canine phermones to help dogs feel the same safety and security in their surroundings and with their owners, as they did with their mother. It provides dogs with calming reassuraance and comfort in stressful situations, reducing signs of fear and anxiety.
