Fear Free Certified Veterinary Practice

The pets we serve in Ooltewah, McDonald, Apison, and beyond are invited to join our family at Applebrook Animal Hospital, which is the home of our Nation’s 1st Fear Free Certified veterinarian!

Our veterinary hospital is not only committed to your beloved pet’s physical health, but also their emotional well being. Vital pet health stats are skewed when a patient is anxious, so having your pet as calm as can be during their veterinary appointment is important. We also want your pet to have a positive experience and think of our pet clinic as their home away from home.

Our veterinary clinic uses a number of techniques to help your furry family member be at ease during their visit–from quiet music in our waiting room, to calming hormone therapy, to tasty treats. All team members at our pet clinic are fear-free certified, so they have training on the best handling and comfort measures during exams.

In addition to our fear-free certification, our veterinary hospital also wants to get to know your pet as an individual, and no knows them better than you! By clicking on the link below, you can access our Pre-Visit Questionnaire so we can better plan their fear-free visit. If our pet clinic has this information, we can try to help minimize those things that your pet finds scary and maximize on the things they love!

Whether you’re new to the area or a regular client, please stop into our animal clinic and say hello! Our pet hospital would love to meet you and your fur ball!
