Fear Free

KKM Veterinary Clinic practices Fear Free veterinary medicine, meaning we take extra precautions to ease the stress, fear, and anxiety so many pets experience while at the veterinarian.

Many of our team members have completed the training and certification program that helps veterinarians and veterinary staff modify their procedures, handling, and facilities to help pets feel safe and comfortable while receiving the medical care they need.

The Fear Free Certification Program was developed by board-certified veterinary behaviorists, veterinary technician behavior specialists, board-certified veterinary anesthetists, well-known veterinary practice management experts, and board-certified veterinary practitioners experienced in Fear Free methods. To become certified, veterinarians and veterinary staff are required to complete a comprehensive, 8-part educational course and exam. They also have to take continuing education to remain certified.
