Fear Free Vet Visits

Annex Animal Hospital is well underway with our new Fear Free certification. We have been busy learning new techniques and trying out ideas to make your pets visit as stress-free as possible.

Fear Free is an initiative that was founded by Dr. Marty Becker, and it is transforming companion animal practices all across North America. We are very proud and excited to be part of it.

Fear Free takes into account not only your pets physical well-being but their emotional well-being as well. During their visit, we do our best to ensure that their fear, anxiety and stress levels are as low as possible. It is done by using a number of different techniques, including minimally invasive handling, lots of positive reinforcement, time and consideration for your pet.

Please check back for more updates on tips and tricks and how you can make your pets visits as fear-free as possible.

To our valued clients,

Our hospital is currently operating with limited staff. There are no doctors available this week, but we continue to be available for food and prescription pick-up.

Due to this, we have temporarily reduced our hours of operation until further notice. We are also experiencing an influx of emails and calls and are doing our best to get back to you as soon as possible. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

HOURS OF OPERATION:

  • Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri: 8:00 am - 7:00 pm
  • Wednesday: 8:00 am - 8:00 pm
  • Saturdays: 8:30 am - 2:00 pm
  • We ask that you continue to be kind to all of our team members. Please know that we are working tirelessly to return to regular programming for you and your cherished pets.
