The Fear Free™ Initiative is something we’ve talked about before on the Buzby Dog Podcast, but this episode is a deep dive into this philosophy in veterinary medicine and standard of care that teaches the importance of caring for both a pet’s physical and emotional well-being.
Dr. Katie Berlin, an associate veterinarian at Shiloh Veterinary Hospital in York, Pennsylvania, where all of their employees are proudly Fear Free™ certified, joins us in this episode to discuss the Fear Free™ Initiative and how it has changed the way she cares for her patients. Dr. Berlin is a 2009 graduate of Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, who is passionate about preventive care for dogs and cats, especially geriatric ones, and pain management and anesthesia.
