WellHaven Pet Health, a family of companion animal veterinary hospitals headquartered in Vancouver, Wa, today announced a partnership with Fear Free to provide its medical staff with training on emotional wellbeing, enrichment, and reducing fear, anxiety, and stress in pets.

WellHaven Pet Health is committed to personal growth, practice support, and life balance to help veterinarians and their teams succeed both personally and professionally. Likewise, Fear Free helps veterinary professionals deliver better care to their patients by looking after both their physical and emotional wellbeing.

For Dr. Bob Lester, Chief Medical Officer of WellHaven Pet Health, the organization’s similar missions make this a natural partnership. “Adopting Fear Free across our practices will result in better medicine, better business, increased safety, and improved practice culture,“ he said.

Dr. Marty Becker, Fear Free CEO and founder, agrees. “Their commitment to the emotional and physical wellbeing of pets demonstrates WellHaven Pet Health’s leadership in the field of veterinary medicine. Fear Free is proud to partner with them in creating better experiences for pets, people, and the profession,” he said.

This new partnership follows WellHaven Pet Health’s commitment to gain American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) certification in all of its 40+ practices, which is already halfway complete. The combination of WellHaven Pet Health’s dedication to the wellbeing of its doctors and teams, Fear Free’s focus on both the physical and emotional health of pets, and AAHA’s proven track record of quality practice are combining to deliver on the WellHaven Pet Health promise of happy vets and healthy pets.
