A Progressive Approach to Training

At Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital, we adhere to the principles of Fear Free, which aims to take the “pet out of petrified”. As part of our commitment to this approach, our veterinarians and staff are specially trained in practices and procedures that aim to reduce stress and anxiety for your pet. Our goal is to promote the physical and emotional wellbeing of each patient and owner that walks through our doors.

When it comes to training a new pet, it can be challenging enough just to learn the basics. Add to that the distractions and stress of being in a new environment with other animals and people, and suddenly you’re faced with a downright difficult situation. That’s where the Fear Free philosophy comes in. When you remove the unnecessary obstacles like fear and apprehension, you and your pet can concentrate on the task at hand, making your bond that much stronger.
