Fear Free℠ Environment

How Queen's Park Pet Hospital is taking the "pet" out of "petrified":

Non-Slip Flooring

Specifically designed flooring provides a comfortable surface for our dog patients to walk on without the fear of slipping. Senior dogs are provided with a comfortable mat to rest on while in our reception or examination rooms.

Calming Music Designed for Dogs and Cats

Instead of listening to music from the radio, we play Through a Dog's Ear and Through a Cat's Ear music therapy CD's. This music is specifically made to prevent anxiety and soothe our dog and cat patients (and their humans too!)

No Cellphones

To provide a calm and quiet atmosphere, cell phone ringers are turned off throughout the hospital.

Canine and Feline Calming Pheromones

At Queen's Park Pet Hospital we use specific dog and cat pheromones throughout the clinic to reduce anxiety for our patients. A dog Adaptil diffuser is plugged into our low stress exam rooms. All cats receive a towel that has been wiped with Feliway-- this soothes cats. Towels are warmed for older or sick patients. 

Social Visits

We recommend that clients bring their dogs in regularly for pets and treats so they become familiar and comfortable with visiting us.

Patient Warmer and Heated Pet Beds

Patients at Queen's Park Pet Hospital are kept warm during anesthesia with a warming conduction blanket called HotDog. This results in patients comfort and faster recovery from surgical procedures.

Gentle Sedation

Our veterinarians will dispense gentle sedatives to owners prior to their appointment if needed, or will administer sedation to perform and procedures that may cause stress to our patients. We use digital x-ray which provides images in 6 seconds reducing stress, handling and radiation exposure for your pet.

Low Stress Examination Rooms

Our exam rooms have been set up to be low stress environments for your dog or cat. Exam tables can be folded up, so pets can be examined on the floor if they prefer that. Non-slip mats are used to provide stable footing for pets. We use ear thermometers instead of rectal ones, so we can evaluate our pets without causing them additional stress. 

Our veterinarians each have over 16 years of experience in veterinary medicine and surgery and handle each patient with gentle and experienced care. 

We are committed to providing a Fear Free℠ environment for dogs, cats, and the families who love them.
