Dr Jenna is now Fear Free Certified!

Fear Free Veterinary Care Now Available for Austin Pets

Can you imagine your dog or cat absolutely LOVING their vet visit?

You won't need to imagine if you call Dr. Jenna with Vet Around Town in Austin TX. That’s because she is part of a new initiative sweeping veterinary medicine designed to ease the stress, fear, and anxiety so many pets experience during vet visits.

Known as Fear Free, the training and certification program helps veterinarians modify their procedures, handling, and facilities to help pets feel safe and comfortable while receiving the medical care they need.

Dr. Jenna recognized the need for low-stress vet visits when she designed her house call veterinary practice. She was thrilled to hear about the Fear Free program to learn even more methods for helping pets develop positive associations with their veterinarian.

Founded by veterinarian Dr. Marty Becker, the Fear Free training program was developed by board-certified veterinary behaviorists, veterinary technician behavior specialists, board-certified veterinary anesthetists, well-known veterinary practice management experts, and boarded veterinary practitioners experienced in Fear Free methods.

“Providing veterinarians with the tools they need to ease this burden of fear and anxiety or our patients is the pinnacle of my 37-year veterinary career,” said Dr. Becker, who was dubbed “America’s Veterinarian” by Dr. Oz and appeared on “Good Morning America” for 17 years. “Veterinary professionals are hungry for this information. Animals and their humans need and deserve it. And now it’s here!”

To become certified, veterinarians and veterinary staff are required to complete a comprehensive, 8-part educational course and exam. They also have to take continuing education to remain certified.

When Dr Jenna and her team visit your home, your pets may not even realize they are having a veterinary exam! The use of calming techniques and positive distractions allows us to complete the exam, diagnostics, and treatments without increasing anxiety in your pet.

Pet owners who would like their pets to experience the Fear Free difference can schedule an appointment by calling or texting 512-900-6639, or emailing drjenna@vetaroundtown.com.
