Vet Tech with Fear Free Instruction

Our veterinary technician instructors are completing the Fear Free certification program, if they have not done so already. This means that they could empower students with skills to help eliminate pets' fear, anxiety, and stress induced by veterinary visits. Fear Free practices are designed to create a clinic experience that is safer for all parties involved, including pets, families, and veterinary healthcare teams.
