Going to the vet can be stressful for pets. Patient stress can make it difficult to diagnose and treat our furry friends and can cause additional stress and safety concerns for team members. This is why South Park Animal Hospital has been asking, “what more can we do to reduce patient stress?” since our hospital’s inception almost 7 years ago. We take a balanced approach as we understand we cannot completely eliminate stress for all patients. We are continually looking for new ideas and assessing our protocols and environments to achieve an optimal experience for both pets and their people.

Here are a few ways we achieve this:

Training: Our associate veterinarians complete Fear Free Certification during regularly scheduled hours when there is down time. Fear Free Certification is funded by Vets Heart Pets for every support team member in the hospital. Team members learn low-stress restraint techniques, animal behavior cues, and are trained to assess and apply the appropriate amount of restraint.

Environment: South Park Animal Hospital was designed to provide a low-stress experience for all patients. Felines wait, are examined, treated, and housed in a separate wing of the hospital. The exam room experience for both canines and felines places an intentional focus on creating the right environment for each patient. Patients are checked out in the exam room when possible to avoid the stress of interacting with other patients. Pheromones assist in creating our low-stress environments.

Tools: A variety of treat and toy options in each room provides distraction and positive reinforcement for patients during acclimation and treatments. Towel warmers provide our feline friends with soothing warmth. Soft mats are provided for patient comfort on exam tables. We offer plenty of other low-stress amenities!

More About Joining the South Park Animal Hospital Team

At South Park Animal Hospital, we take our commitment to offer excellent service to our team very seriously. For us, that means building a work environment and team culture that fosters fairness, open communication and fun! That said, we have high expectations of our team, because we know that it takes an exceptional team to deliver on our mission: to provide quality, compassionate veterinary care to our patients and 5 star service to our clients and community.

Client Service

No animal has ever walked through our hospital doors without a human attached to them. So no matter how much you love animals, to be successful at our hospital you must love the people who love those animals. Client education is a BIG part of what we do, so you must be able to communicate effectively and in a friendly manner. We are here to serve our clients, so finding ways to exceed their expectations is a daily task at South Park Animal Hospital.

Teamwork

Do you make it a point to notice when those around you may need assistance and offer to help out instead of waiting to be asked for help? At SPAH, teamwork is a very important part of our team culture. When an aggressive and painful patient is being restrained for a treatment, teamwork and trust are vital to the safety of the patient and team members.

Compassion

We are advocates for the pets that visit our hospital. They cannot speak for themselves, so we must speak for them when we suspect they are in pain or to educate owners about preventative measures to help ensure their good health in the future. This takes a great deal of compassion, coupled with the emotional intelligence to endure the parts of the job that are difficult for those who have a great deal of compassion for animals.

South Park Animal Hospital is an Equal Opportunity Employer, committed to diversity.
