A Neighborhood Veterinary Practice
With Fear-Free Practices and Multi-Modal Treatments
We Designed Our Facility By Focusing on Fear-Free Practice Standards
South Franklin Animal Hospital is enrolled in Fear-Free Practice Modules for advanced learning, techniques, and certification. There is a continual learning curve in veterinary medicine, especially in the area of behavior concerns. SFAH is fully aware of behavior issues, and the ultimate results of unwanted pets, shelter overload, and strays. We work with amazing rescue groups and are faced with the results of untreated or unaddressed behavior issues. Most of these are related to anxieties, fear, stress, boredom, and lack of structure/leadership. It is our duty to address this behavior issue from all aspects, starting with our practice techniques, owner education, and understanding.
Focusing on Pet Nutrition for Long Term Health
Along with diets, are proven medications, supplements, and additives. Multimodal treatment approach is key in the successful treatment of chronic, un curable diseases such as allergies/skin issues, osteoarthritis, and behavior. This approach is a team effort between the doctor, staff/team, and owner to give our beloved pets the fullest, pain-free, fear-free life.

Pet Patient Center
Because A Healthy Pet is a Happy Pet
At South Franklin Animal Hospital, Dr. Sammons also is committed to the pet’s life stages of care, from pediatric to geriatric. This includes appropriate recommendations on wellness lab work, vaccinations, supplements, and diets. Dr. Sammons and staff spend a lot of time communicating with clients on puppy topics, such as crate training, training tips, and behavior concerns, as well as geriatric topics, such as cognitive dysfunction, urinary incontinent, and quality of life.
Most important is Dr Sammons and her SFAH Staff are always in touch with clients via email, phone, and/or text message. Dr. Sammons strongly feels that it is a TEAM approach with the client on all stages of a pet’s life, but most important as the pet nears end of life. She takes a personal approach to not only helping clients prepare for the day, but walks with the clients on that day to make sure that the celebration of the pet’s life is perfect. At SFAH, no detail is forgotten.
