A Better Visit
At North Shore Veterinary Hospital, we are committed to providing your pet a visit that is as free of fear, anxiety and stress (FAS) as possible. A visit that is comfortable and relaxed will contribute to the health and well-being of your animal companion. Animals that experience FAS during veterinary visits are less likely to return for future wellness exams and may only come in when experiencing illness. A stressed or fearful pet may result in limited physical exams, a decreased ability to perform diagnostic tests and even slower recovery from illness. Your pet’s health is our highest priority, so addressing and reducing fear is an essential component in that process.
We know that we can’t make every visit completely free of FAS, but we will make every effort we can to reduce the FAS related to examinations and procedures. Our efforts to reduce FAS involve facility improvements as well as staff education and training. Here is what you can expect from a visit to North Shore Veterinary Hospital:
