That’s why Eno Animal Hospital is dedicated to practicing low-stress veterinary medicine. We do all we can to make vet visits as easy as possible for your unique fur baby.
What does this entail? In short: Low-stress techniques create happy visits with less fear and lots of love.
We designed our new hospital to be comfortable and soothing. First, it looks and feels like a house—painted soft blue and cream, and full of stonework and wood beams—not a cold clinic.
As soon as you set foot in the door, you can tell we have thought about every detail.
Our lobby features separate areas for dogs and cats; since dogs often get hyper when they smell cats and cats usually get frightened when they smell dogs. Our exam rooms are divided into dog rooms and cat rooms as well, with special calming pheromones plugged in that help soothe canine and feline nerves.
Please note: To keep everyone safe from COVID-19, all visits are valet service. Only Eno team members are allowed inside our hospital. We wish we could welcome you in; we have to stay healthy to keep helping pets! Rest assured, your fur baby will still get a happy visit full of treats and love.
The COVID-19 pandemic is still unfolding. Get the details on our great plan for pets and their people during these tumultuous times. And please watch our video all about valet visits.
Low-stress techniques show success. We make pets feel at ease. Many pet parents report their dogs jog happily into our hospital! Cats can be harder to win over…but we still have more than our fair share of calm, cooperative kitties.
We practice gentle handling with the least amount of restraint required. You’ll often find us on the floor with your pet; the floor is almost always where patients are the most comfortable and relaxed. But we’re down if your fur baby prefers the bench (and to visit with his bestie)!
Our associate vet, Dr. Peace, is an expert in behavior and desensitization.
He has been able to examine severely scared patients who have not let a vet get near them in years. Patience, kindness, and consistency are key.
We are your other family doctor. We believe you and your pet deserve to be as comfortable as possible in our home! For more information about happy visits, give us a call at (919) 471-0308.
