Fear Free

Dr. Murphy and all the technicians at Westside Animal Hospital are Fear Free-certified, meaning our care principles and elements of the physical building are designed to minimize anxiety, fear, and stress for your pet. Examples of this include separate sitting areas and exam rooms for cats and dogs, non-skid flooring, a recessed floor scale, pheromone diffusers, soothing music, a high airflow rate to keep the hospital fresh and clean, and gentle handling. The result is a calmer experience for both you and your pet.
