Fear Free Certification

A very comfortable and relaxed cat

The Bluffs Pet Clinic offers exceptional veterinary care for cats and dogs in Red Wing, MN. Our doctors employ a holistic approach to medical care that focuses on the physical and emotional wellbeing of your pet, and we are dedicated to keeping your pet happy and healthy with gentle techniques designed to reduce stress during vet visits.

Our employees are Fear Free Certified® and have received special training on how to support your pet when they come to see the vet. Fear Free is an educational program founded by Dr. Marty Becker (America’s Veterinarian) that helps veterinary professionals provide better medical care for animals by decreasing the anxiety and discomfort associated with veterinary visits.

At The Bluffs Pet Clinic, we use various techniques to help promote a stress-free vet experience including:

  • Quiet areas—We minimize noise as much as possible to reduce stressors and distractions.
  • Gentle restraint (when necessary)—Gentle handling techniques help your pet feel comfortable and safe.
  • Pheromones—Pheromone products are soothing and can help relieve anxious pets.
  • Non-slip surfaces.
  • Toys and treats.
