Hercules 🐱 was homeless & only a few days old when his dad James rescued him from a 🏈 field. Hercules & dad share a strong & obvious bond.

Hercules began hissing 😞 in the room when his carrier was opened !

Hissing = FAS (Fear/Anxiety/Stress) We reacted immediately to his FAS with a considerate approach that addressed his emotional needs.

The air muzzle, gentle handling, comfy towels, feliway pheromones, & dad nearby allowed our team to help Hercules.

Prioritization of a pet’s emotional well being changes the experience for pets & pet parents. Our team is so proud to be part of every Fear Free Vet Visit at our hospital 🏥 !
