Pet Wellness Plans: What Is It And Do You Need It?

pet wellness plansKeeping your pet healthy is a veterinarian’s number one priority.  The easiest way to keep your pet happy and healthy is an annual visit to the veterinarian.  Do you have trouble affording your pet’s annual vaccinations, testing and preventative medication?  If you do, then pet wellness plans can help you get the care your pet needs with affordable monthly payments.

At Guthrie Pet Hospital, it’s important for us to assess each pet’s risk of disease and parasites and protect them.  During your pet’s annual exam, Dr. Anna Coffin will perform a full comprehensive examination. Our in-depth, medical checkup not only assess your pet’s current health status but also helps to prevent future problems, such as obesity, periodontal disease, and diabetes.  It also provides us with the opportunity to discuss all the ways to keep your pet in good shape and to answer your questions.  Here at Guthrie Pet Hospital, we are happy to cover any topic including nutrition and behavioral issues.

What are pet wellness plans?

Pet wellness plans are growing in popularity and are now a common commodity at many veterinary clinics.  These plans will most likely vary from each veterinary clinic, but the concept is the same.  Pet wellness plans typically include everything that your pet needs during the entire year to help prevent diseases.  These plans help you budget your money and allow you to make affordable monthly payments instead of having to pay for everything at one visit.

Pet wellness plans are not the same as pet insurance.  Pet insurance is available and is used to help you pay for examinations and treatments when your pet is ill.  Pet wellness plans only include preventative medicine and wellness examinations.

What do pet wellness plans cover:

  • Annual wellness exams
  • Vaccinations
  • Fecal testing
  • Deworming
  • Heartworm testing
  • Feline leukemia/FIV testing
  • Dental Cleaning
  • Heartworm prevention
  • Flea/tick prevention
  • Microchipping
  • Spay and neutering
  • Nail trims

The staff at Guthrie Pet Hospital are happy to talk with you about our pet wellness plans.  We can customize each plan so that it meets you and your pet’s needs.  Your pet will live a longer, healthier life through the prevention of diseases.   During the month of October, receive $20.00 off your enrollment fee for any pet wellness plan.
