Hollywood Vet Promotes Stress-Free Office Environment
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 5, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Jeff Werber of the Century Veterinary Group in Hollywood is striving to create the best pet experience for pets at home and when they visit the vet clinic. Similar to children, pets can pick up on stress and may suffer negative health impacts from it. Conditions that arouse their "fight or flight" response or changes in their day-to-day routine may lead to loss of bladder control, anxiety, nervousness, allergies, reductions in the effectiveness of their immune system, vomiting or other more serious health conditions. After 27 years, the veterinarian has become a pet expert who provides advice to both pet owners and other veterinarians on how to reduce the stress in the home and office environments.
Visiting a vet clinic for anything from a vaccination or dog grooming to a surgical procedure may be a stressful situation for the pet as it is being taken out of its normal routine and comfort zone. Dr. Jeff works with the team members at his clinic to maintain a calm and soothing environment that doesn't heighten the stress level. The doctor even appears in a video that teaches other veterinarians about how to deal with bickering between team members to help them create the best possible office environment for their pet patients as well.
Commenting on his advocacy for stress-free clinics, the Hollywood veterinarian said, "Our pets are like us in so many ways. They don't react well to changes in routine or environment, and their natural responses get aroused when they see people or other animals fighting. I work with pet owners to show them the best ways of helping their pets deal with any changes at home, and I work with my team to make sure we offer a calming experience here. A happy pet is a healthy pet, and we can all play a role in making that happen."
The Century Veterinary Group offers a variety of pet services including routine exams, pet grooming, cleaning dogs' teeth, pet boarding, diagnostic services, prescription fulfillment and pet supplies in a way that shows they are caring and understanding of the needs of both the pet owner and the pet itself.
To encourage pet owners to bring their pets in to experience the environment that has been created at the local animal hospital, the practice is offering a new patient special featuring a free first office call/exam. Century Veterinary Group is located at 8750 Venice Blvd. Further information on the vet clinic or maintaining a stress-free environment for pets may be found by visiting the website at www.centuryvet.com.
