Dr. Marty Becker, “America’s Veterinarian,” has spent his life working toward better health for pets and the people who love them. He is the founder of Fear Free with the mission to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress in pets by inspiring and educating the people who care for them.

While most veterinary healthcare professionals have heard of Fear Free, few may know the ongoing research supporting it or the breadth/depth of the participants involved. This webinar will focus on how incorporating Fear Free in your practice can not only help your patients and clients but also your business.

Dr. Becker will highlight the following objectives:

  • The two most common things that cause fear, anxiety and stress in pets 
  • How to recognize fear, anxiety and stress
  • An introduction to the basic protocols of Fear Free
  • Evidence to show that Fear Free allows you to “do well, by doing good” 
  • What drugs and modalities can be used for treating Fear, Anxiety and Stress (FAS) 

We hope you will join us as we explore this important topic.

All HSVMA webinars are FREE for HSVMA members.

If you are not a veterinary professional (veterinarian, veterinary technician, veterinary or veterinary technician student), we welcome your participation in the webinar for a one-time fee. Please call 530-759-8106 or email [email protected] to complete the registration.
