Dr Belinda Parsons BVSc CVA (Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist)
At the end of 2016 I adopted a 12 month old Spoodle and so my journey to better understanding dog behaviour began. Charlie is a much loved and highly anxious boy. His anxiety presents as hyperarousal and chewing. In October 2017 we opened our hearts to another dog who suffers from anxiety Elmo. Elmo feels anxious around strangers and in new situations. I have consulted with veterinary behaviorists and both boys are happily medicated. I always thought that I practiced many aspects of fear free veterinary practice but since having my anxious boys I wanted to make sure I was doing everything I could for my patients to help them feel comfortable in my presence and so my Fear Free mission has began.
