No significant investment

If you're just starting to dip your toe in the water, or if you're the only one in the practice who is really fired up—and you're not the boss—these strategies are practically free and shouldn't take much time to implement. Between 40 percent and 70 percent of respondents to our Fear-Free study are using these strategies regularly now. If you're in that group, one key step is to make sure you're telling clients you're taking these great steps to make their pets' visits go more smoothly. And maybe your team is ready to stretch a bit more, and implement some of the things on the next page that require a slightly bigger investment to achieve.
