What is Fear Free?

Visits to veterinary hospitals are declining—and the stress and anxiety associated with taking a pet to the veterinarian is a significant reason why. Fear leads to trauma for patients, and as a result, pet owners visit their veterinarian less often or not at all, instead opting to seek advice and products from other sources.

Fortunately, there is a solution that can resolve this downward trend, restore trust in veterinarians as the true pet health experts, and most importantly, reduce feelings of stress, resulting in a better experience for all involved, including pets, owners, and veterinary health care teams: Fear Free℠ veterinary visits

Continuing Education

  • Upon completion of the modules, you will receive a total of nine RACE approved CE hours
  • The program is also eligible for seven CVPM-qualified CE hours through the VHMA

Fear Free for Students

Fear Free is excited to offer all veterinary and veterinary technician students ONE YEAR of complimentary membership to our program! While the offer is open to students of all levels, it is recommended that students take advantage of the offer in their fourth year of veterinary school or the last year of their program. That way, their certification will still be active when they transition into the start of their career.

NOTE: This offer is good for one calendar year from the date of registration and does not include the Level 2 Certification Course.
