What is Fear Free℠?

Fear Free℠ is an initiative that promotes a considerate approach and gentle control techniques used in calming environments during a veterinary visit. Developed by Dr. Marty Becker, utilization of Fear Free℠ methods and protocols leads to reduction or removal of anxiety triggers, which creates an experience that is rewarding and safer for all involved, including pets, their owners, and veterinary health care teams. The end result? Calmer, more accepting patients, more compliant clients, and better veterinary care.

How is Fear Free℠ connected with Virox Animal Health™?

AHP Accelerated Hydrogen PeroxideThe patented technology behind our revolutionary disinfectant designed for companion animal facilities, Prevail™, is Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®). AHP® is unique in its ability to kill deadly pathogens, such as canine parvovirus, in half the time of legacy or traditional disinfectants, helping to keep patients safer during a veterinary visit. But it's not just the killing power of AHP® that makes it the perfect fit for Fear Free℠. Because it's so gentle on patients, users and the environment, AHP® is much safer for pets. AHP® has no odor, so all that's left behind after cleaning and disinfection is the smell of clean – which is no smell at all! AHP® has no artificial fragrances, and no harsh chemical odors to trigger stress and anxiety in a pet during a veterinary visit, helping to create the ideal environment for both patients and clients. It's these benefits that make AHP® the Deliberately Different™ choice for infection control and biosecurity in your veterinary practice.
