Dr. McKeage, Fear Free Practitioner

August 21, 2018

At Fur Family Animal Hospital we work hard to create a low-stress environment for your pets. One of the ways we support this mission is that our veterinarian, Dr. McKeage, is a Fear Free certified professional.


What does it mean?

Fear Free states their initiative very plainly: "Our mission is to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress in pets by inspiring and educating the people who care for them."


How is Fur Family different?

A Fear Free approach to veterinary medicine is something Dr. McKeage takes seriously when caring for pets. We want you and your pets to have a positive experience and that can be as simple as offering treats, affection, and a calming tone throughout their visit to more sophisticated accommodations like frequency adjusted soothing music, ambient pheromones, and a comforting color palette throughout the hospital. Dr. McKeage's understanding and appreciation of Fear Free medicine has fundamentally shaped the way we provide veterinary care. 


What do I do next?

We think your pet deserves a Fear Free experience the next time they go to the vet.
