2018 Workshops

Fear Free in Practice

A one-day workshop presented by Fear Free and NAVTA

The all-new Fear Free 2018 Workshop Series will change the way you practice. Fear Free is about putting pets back in to practices, and this event will help put the joy back into your work.

Hosted by Dr. Marty Becker, this year’s series is all about going deeper into the Fear Free practice. Let a world-class team of lecturers teach you how PVPs and sedation can give you and your patients a Fear Free experience even with time constraints or emergency situations. We’ve taken your feedback on the sometimes difficult act of getting everyone on-board with Fear Free and have developed a whole lecture to focus on implementation and communication of Fear Free to your clients and your team.

This year will include three hours of in-depth case studies. Learn how planning and arrival protocols can set your clients and your staff up for success. See a routine Fear Free exam and vaccination from our experts. Find out more about anesthetic induction and how to properly communicate the procedure’s details with your clients.

We’re incredibly excited about this year’s events and we hope you are too! Please join us in one of the 12 cities on this year’s list and see how Fear Free will let you practice the way you’ve always dreamed.
