Fear Free© certification is beneficial to everyone involved. Not only does it improve the emotional well-being of the pet, it also reduces stress and anxiety for the pet parent, which increases the likelihood of them bringing their pet in for regular care. Better for pets, their parents and the veterinary medical team, Fear Free© is a win-win for everyone.

Riverwalk Pet Hospital - fear free

What does it mean to be Fear Free©?

At Riverwalk Pet Hospital & Resort we are committed to caring for your pet’s health AND well-being. We know how stressful it can be to bring a pet to the veterinarian when they are experiencing fear, anxiety, or stress (FAS). RPHR’s goal is to intervene in a positive and productive way to reduce or better yet, alleviate, your pet’s FAS. Your pet’s health is our highest priority, therefore ensuring we can provide the care they need is extremely important to us.

Riverwalk employs a team of Fear Free© certified veterinary professionals and our facility was inspired by the standards of Fear Free© practice excellence. We believe that you will not only see the difference here but feel and hear the difference as well.
