We understand that coming to the vet clinic may not always be your pet's favorite activity. We are constantly striving to make our patients more comfortable as they receive the care that they need and deserve. The following programs may be right for your pet and are something that you may request when making an appointment.
- Comfort Room - some time ago, we converted a more typical exam room into a room that has some elements that your pet may recognize as being familiar, resulting in less anxiety. While we do still have a stainless steel exam table for obvious reasons, it can be folded up against the wall, leaving just the area rug, end table with a lamp and "homestyle" seating to make this room feel like home. Several patients have exhibited reduced anxiety in this room. It is also the room we have available for that final goodbye with your pet.
- Our Cat Room - we also created a "cat only" exam room that has never been occupied by a dog. Its a smaller room and typically has cat friendly music (yes, it does exist) and dimmed lighting. The use of cat pheromones makes this room a popular setting for our feline patients.
- The use of Feliway and Adaptil pheromone products - using diffusers of these pheromones in strategic areas of the practice, and using Feliway/Adaptil sprayed cage covers has greatly reduced patient anxiety while in our facility.
