Fear Free Certified

Jeanne Crockett is a Fear Free Elite Certified Professional which means she has completed 9 hours of veterinary education followed by three years of additional educational credits to reach the elite status. The program teaches how to recognize different levels of stress in dogs and cats and how to mitigate their fears.

Fear Free professionals are concerned with your pets emotional and physical well-being and are adept at handling fearful, anxious, or stressed-out pets. We are in it for the long haul and, we hope our first meeting is the beginning of a long relationship. It’s then that we gather the information that we need to get to know your pet and its routine. We believe that home is the best place for a pet to stay, and we are dedicated to reducing your pet’s anxiety, fear and stress while you are away.

  • We keep your pet safe from other animals, people or children.
