#Harbor Point Animal Hospital is excited to announce that we are one of three animal hospitals in the state of North Carolina to become a Fear Free Certified Practice!
Established in 2016, the Fear Free movement is becoming more sought after by both pet owners and members of the veterinary field. This is largely due to an increased recognition of the importance of the emotional wellness of our pets. Becoming a Certified Fear Free Practice requires a team approach to safeguard the emotional well-being of our patients, their owners, and our staff.
In order to become a Certified Practice, we had to successfully implement Fear Free into all aspects of our business to meet Fear Free Practice Certification Standards. Mandatory standards are pass/fail; optional standards are weighted, and the practice must achieve a minimum score to pass each category. Standards that must be met range from hospital design, to handling, to medical practices and protocols.
All of this is done with the goal of reducing the fear, anxiety, and stress that pets and their owners often feel prior to veterinary visits. Our hope is that as pets become less fearful of veterinary care, we will see an increase in the number of animals receiving preventative and wellness care- helping pets live a longer, healthier, happier life.
