A veterinary clinic can, unfortunately, be a stressful environment for both its staff and visitors; pet owners are often very worried and stressed regarding the welfare of their pets and sadly the clinical smells associated with a veterinary clinic do little to soothe their nerves.
The Association Between Smell and Emotion
Smell is considered by many to be the most powerful and emotive of our senses. It is vital to feelings of well-being as it is closely linked with the parts of the brain that process emotion and memory; the limbic system. This system controls how we respond to scents and how smell plays a major role in the control of behaviors, emotions, and memories. For this reason, veterinary clinics would benefit largely from modified scent which would, therefore, produce positive responses in their clientele.
How Scent Can Be Used to Trigger Positivity
Scent not only calms people, but it can actually boost mood and positive affect, as well as energize those who are fortunate enough to be impacted by it. This sense of positivity and well-being that is triggered through the careful crafting of scent is why many veterinary clinics are using HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) scenting systems. These scent systems use the technology of cold air diffusion to deliver a consistent and effective scent throughout every square inch of a building.
Essentially, if you wish to give your veterinary clinic the edge over other clinics, then you can’t afford to overlook the impact of scent. An HVAC scenting system will not only cover any unpleasant odors from unfortunate accidents in a veterinary clinic, but they will also help to create an ambient and relaxed atmosphere for both staff and visitors alike.
