Take the “pet out of petrified” and get pets back into your practice with the new Fear Free℠ Certification Program!

Why Fear Free? • As veterinary professionals, we know that visits to our hospitals are declining. Our goal: Turn this trend around by addressing the primary reason behind it—fear and anxiety created by the veterinary visit. • Veterinarians, technicians, and other veterinary professionals are the true pet health experts—and we’d like to keep it that way. Fear Free visits mean veterinary teams see their patients more often, and pet owners seek advice from a trusted source. • Fear Free veterinary visits eliminate fear, anxiety, and stress, and create an experience that is better and safer for all involved, including pets, owners, and veterinary healthcare teams.

Get pets back into your practice with Fear Free Certification Now available on VetFolio, the Fear Free Certification Program consists of eight educational modules and is open to veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and all other members of the veterinary team. The program also includes regularly updated CE and training courses, as well as a rich library of the latest Fear Free publications, podcasts, and bonus modules. Plus, seek advice, share ideas, and connect with your peers in an exclusive Facebook group just for Fear Free certified professionals.

Sponsored by:

Find Fear Free CE for the whole practice at AAHA Nashville 2017 Take advantage of this offer and then take your Fear Free certification a step further with our Fear Free scientific track on Friday and technician track on Saturday. See pages 21 and 30 for more details.

When you aren’t learning, explore all that Music City has to offer. Country roots: Experience an unrivaled collection of country music artifacts and legends of the genre’s brightest stars at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Plus, get in a little shopping at the retail stores onsite offering locally made gifts, clothing, and a comprehensive selection of books and music. Timeless design: Across the street from the convention center, you’ll be mesmerized as you watch posters roll off the presses through a large picture window at Hatch Show Print. Marvel at the uniqueness of each print that can only be produced using this historic printing process. Bonus for cat lovers: This iconic letterpress shop also has two full-time feline employees! Ain’t it grand: The stars of the Grand Ole Opry perform every Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday night, February through October. If you’re lucky, you can also catch guest appearances by some of the biggest names in music. Local flavor: If you only eat at one place in Nashville, make it The Southern Steak & Oyster. Brunch, lunch, or dinner, the menu will spoil you with delectable food and delicious libations. And don’t forget to grab another Music City staple for dessert—the world’s first combination candy bar, the Goo Goo Cluster, was invented in Nashville. Find them in convenience and gift stores around town. Legendary road: Just blocks from the convention center, visit the various live music venues along Honky Tonk Highway. You never know who you’ll see, so be sure to explore all the fun spots on this famous block. Only have time for one? Step into AAHA staff favorite, Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, for a “holler and a swaller”. Nashville sound: Departing daily from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, you can visit the historic RCA Studio B, where Elvis recorded over 200 songs. Old-fashioned taste: Ranked by Travel + Leisure as one of the top cities for hipsters, Nashville is a great place for vintage shopping. Whether you’re into clothes, records, or antique treasures, great finds are waiting around every corner.
