Fear Free Restraint Techniques


Dr. Babineaux is strongly committed to utilizing fear-free techniques during her ultrasound exams - pets are frequently ill and frightened, and her goal is to make their ultrasound as gentle as possible. Techniques include:


  • Calming pheromones

  • Towel restraint for cats (cats are NEVER scruffed!)

  • E-collars instead of face masks or muzzles (especially important for dyspneic or nauseous animals)

  • Padded positioning troughs

  • A quiet, soothing atmosphere

  • Light plane of sedation for especially nervous animals
