Fear Free Visits

The most important concept regarding Fear Free visits is taking into consideration the pet’s emotional AND physical well-being. Decreasing fear and anxiety for a pet’s visit is a TEAM effort. Here’s what we all can do to create Fear Free visits:

What YOU can do:
  • Deliver your pet to the veterinary clinic calm and relaxed.
  • Avoid conveying your own concerns by not talking or keeping your tone conversational, not “soothing". If you’re concerned, then they must need to be too, right?
  • Desensitize your cat to its carrier (see video) and use a carrier cover.
  • Don’t carry the cat carrier by the handle. This jostles your kitty! Hold it in front like a precious package.
  • Use pheromones (soothing fragrances) or nutraceuticals (natural anti-anxiety medications) prior to the car ride.
  • Bring a favorite toy, bed or treat.
  • Limit food the day of the visit to make treats more desirable and distracting.
Once you arrive:
  • Watch for signs of anxiety or fear. There are posters in each exam room to help you identify subtle signs.
  • If your pet shows any signs of fear or attention-seeking behavior, the best thing to do is to remove your attention.
  • Do not pet, talk to, or look at an anxious pet. This actually feeds the fear! If you can sit quietly reading a book or catching up on your Candy Crush game, your dog or cat will sense this is a place they can relax. Before you know it, they will be exploring the room and maybe even greeting the doctor!
  • Allow your pet to approach the veterinary team at their own pace. The doctor will let you know if they need you to assist with the introductions.
What WE can do:
  • Carefully assess your pet’s level of fear, anxiety or stress.
  • Use lots of delectable treats.
  • Determine and use your pet’s preferred handling method and note it in medical record.
  • Allow time for our patient to relax and choose to greet us/allow treatment.
  • Use pheromones for calming.
  • Eliminate exposure to other patients in waiting area.
  • Cat-only exam rooms and treatment areas for our feline patients.
  • Use sedatives/pain management if needed to avoid further fear or anxiety.
  • Never force a procedure unless medically necessary.
  • Choose treatment options which allow the least pain and handling. (Ask us about our needles!)
  • Plan for pre-visit anti-anxiety medications for future visits if needed.
  • Encourage “Happy Visits.”

Who We Are

What Our
Clients Say


Dave Albert Defense of (DADO) Animals Fund is dedicated to improving the health and welfare of local homeless and needy pets.


At ZCVC, we are proud to provide high quality services to our clients and patients.

We provide wellness and preventive care for dogs and cats of all ages including the following:

  • Examinations: Since dogs and cats age more quickly than humans, at least annual physical examinations are recommended.
  • Vaccines: Vaccine protocols are tailored to the individual pet taking their lifestyle into consideration.
  • Diet and nutrition advice
  • Parasite testing and prevention
  • Microchips
  • Health certificates
  • Behavior consults

If your pet is ill, we have many diagnostic tools at our disposal, including the following:

  • In-house and outside laboratory testing (e.g. blood, urine, etc.)
  • Cytology (ear swabs, skin scrapings, sampling masses, etc)
  • Blood pressure
  • Digital radiographs (x-rays) with radiologist consult capability
  • Ultrasound

We perform surgical and dentistry procedures 4 days per week. To minimize anesthetic and surgical risks, pre-anesthetic bloodwork is run on all patients, and anesthetic protocols are tailored to the individual pet. We use state-of-the-art monitoring equipment, and our team is very well-trained to give your pet the best possible care. Our surgical suite is also equipped with a surgical laser. Procedures we perform include:

  • Spay and neuter
  • Soft tissue surgery
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Dentistry: Full mouth dental radiographs (x-rays) are performed on all dental patients to completely evaluate for any disease below the gum line.

We are able to provide treatments to meet your pet’s needs including the following:

  • IV fluids and hospitalization
  • Pain management
  • Therapy laser
  • Hospice care
  • Medications: Our clinic’s pharmacy carries many commonly used drugs that your pet may need
  • Prescription diets: Some medical conditions require nutritional treatment, so we have prescription diets in stock to meet your pet’s dietary needs

We know some decisions about your pet can be very difficult to make. Our team is here to answer questions and provide support regarding your pet’s quality of life, as well as euthanasia decisions. We have a separate room dedicated to euthanasia appointments so that you and your pet may be as comfortable as possible. You are welcome to be with your pet throughout the euthanasia process. We offer cremation services, as well as mementos (e.g. pawprints) or urns to memorialize your pet.

Specialists are available ranging from neurology to dermatology to surgery. To make arrangements for referral, your primary care doctor will contact the specialist to facilitate your appointment. If you have any questions about referral options, please don't hesitate to discuss it with your veterinarian.
