Fear Free

Fear Free

Can you imagine telling your dog, “Let’s go the vet!” and seeing their tail wag? How about getting out your cat’s carrier and seeing him come running?  Richmond pet owners won’t need to imagine it if they visit Cary Street Veterinary Hospital.  That’s because we’re the first veterinary practice in the state of Virginia to receive our Fear Free Practice Certification!  Fear Free is a new initiative sweeping veterinary medicine designed to ease the stress, fear, and anxiety so many pets experience while at the veterinarian.  We have modified our procedures, handling techniques and facility to help pets feel safe and comfortable while receiving the medical care they need.  

The health and safety of our patients, clients and team members are top priority at Cary Street Vet. We are closely following the Virginia Department of Health and the Centers For Disease Control CDC for guidelines and have implemented a more rigorous cleaning protocol and for now, ask that clients who are experiencing flu-like symptoms or exposure to the COVID-19 infection to please reschedule their pet’s appointment. For questions on the virus and your pet, the AVMA has released the following FAQ: https://www.avma.org/sites/default/files/2020-03/covid-19-faq-vet-clinics.pdf
