Fear Free℠ is an initiative that promotes methods and protocols that lead to the 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.
Available on VetFolio, the Fear Free℠ Certification Program consists of eight educational modules and is open to veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and all other members of the veterinary team. The program also includes regularly updated CE and training courses, plus access to a rich library of Fear Free℠ information, such as the latest Fear Free℠ publications, webcasts, a bonus module, and community events. To become certified, participants must complete the online educational program and certification exam. Fear Free℠ certification will be valid for three years. Each year, participants will be required to attend continued Fear Free℠ education, both online and in person, to keep the certification active and renew their Fear Free℠ registration fee.
