Tipp City Veterinary Hospital (TVCH) has become the first and only veterinary practice in Miami County to add Fear Free certification to their practice. The Fear Free(SM) training and certification program aids veterinarians and their staff in providing a safe and comfortable environment for pets that reduces fear and anxiety during visits. The veterinary practice enjoys the distinction of being one of the most highly certified Fear Free(SM) providers in the state of Ohio.
"It is common for pets to feel anxious when they are taken to a veterinarian," explains Dr. Ken Brunson, Associate Veterinarian at TCVH. "Having a way to reduce these negative feelings helps us serve our patients better. We are dedicated to serving our pets with care and compassion, so we wanted to do everything we could to make them feel safe."
Utilization of Fear Free methods and protocols leads to reduction or removal of anxiety triggers, which creates an experience that is rewarding and safer for all involved including pets, their owners, and veterinary health care teams. To become certified, Tipp City Veterinary Hospital staff completed an intensive, 8-part educational course and exam. They will also take continuing education to remain certified.
The staff members certified within the Tipp City veterinary practice are: Jenny Accuntius, Dr. Ken Brunson, Jessica Butts, Dr. Susan Dextradeur, Tara Fisher, Dr. Jacob Mathias, Rachael Morrison, Jamie Sissom, Ben Spinks, and Tanya Young.
"We pride ourselves on staying up-to-date on the latest certifications, technologies, and techniques to provide the best care for our patients," says Ben Spinks, Hospital Administrator at TCVH. "The Fear Free program has helped us improve our procedures and facility so we can make the pet-visit experience free of fear and anxiety-for both the pets and their owners. The benefits of this program were immediately noticeable - more relaxed visits for our patients and happier clients, so I am very excited about the prospects."
