Fear Free Certification

The Island Hammock Pet Hospital Doctors have attained the status of:
 


 

Our veterinarians are the only veterinarians in the Florida Keys to have earned this certification.

It is very difficult to heal an animal physically, if the process traumatizes the animal emotionally.

 

The mission of the “Fear Free” initiative and certification is to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety and stress in pets by inspiring and educating the people who care for them. Fear Free has become one of the single most transformative initiatives in the history of Companion Animal Medicine, providing unparallel education on emotional well-being, enrichment as well as the reduction of fear, anxiety and stress in pets.

Although the Island Hammock Pet Hospital has embraced this style of medicine from our inception, we have chosen to formalize and incorporate the principles of Fear Free in everything we do in our practice and counsel to our clients.
