The Benefits of Cat & Dog Wellness Plans

Are you wondering why more and more pet parents are signing up for wellness plans? Today, our Seymour vets share some of the benefits of wellness plans for your beloved canine companion or feline friend.

Nobody wants to think about their pet getting hurt or sick, but just like with our own health, it's always best to be as prepared as possible. In addition to pet insurance, a veterinary wellness plan can help ensure that your pet has easy access to routine and emergency care.

Benefits Of Pet Wellness Plans

As a pet owner, you know it's a big responsibility to make sure your cat or dog lives a happy, healthy life. There are several ways to do this: providing affection, play, and exercise, a good diet... and routine preventive vet care. Wellness Plans offer a chance for your vet team to monitor the health and well-being of your pet, and that can help them live longer and happier.

Preventive Care

Prevention is almost always the best 'treatment' when it comes to health. It can be more affordable to ensure that our animal friends don't develop preventable illnesses or conditions in the first place, and by taking your cat or dog in for their regular veterinary checkups any potential issues can be caught early. Early detection leads to better outcomes from treatment or management.

Support Good Pet Care

If you have easy access to something, you're more likely to use it regularly – and this includes your pet's health care services. More veterinary checkups can mean a healthier pooch or kitty at home, making your job of providing their daily ongoing care easier!

Your Vet Gets to Know Your Pet

As an extra note to the benefit above, as a result of our team getting to know your pet through regular appointments, we are better able to monitor their health and provide the necessary care for them.

Budgeting

Wellness Plans can help you budget more easily, making it less stressful to take your pet to the vet for routine or emergency care. Pet insurance and wellness plans can provide peace of mind because they cover the majority of the care services that your devoted cat or dog may require, rather than having to pay for treatment unexpectedly out of pocket.

Discounts

Signing up for Wellness Plans can help you to save money! Many offer discounts on routine services, although each veterinary office will include or exclude different services. Contact your veterinarian today to find out about their wellness plans and what they do or don't cover. 

Be Prepared For Emergencies

Pet owners dread the thought of their pets becoming injured or ill, but it's critical to be prepared. Many wellness plans include a set number of veterinary examinations as part of the package, which can be very useful when it comes to obtaining emergency care for your dog or cat.

Unique Plans For Unique Pets

Every pet is special and has unique needs. While there are obvious differences in plans for cats vs. dogs, there are also differences between different sizes of dogs! A giant breed dog has different health and wellness needs from a small dog breed. Speak with your veterinarian for help selecting the best plan for you and your pet!

Wellness Plans For Dogs 

For your canine companion, wellness plans often include:

  • Routine wellness exams
  • Core vaccinations
  • Bloodwork
  • Annual heartworm & tick disease testing
  • Bi-annual intestinal parasite screenings
  • Bi-annual wellness exam with bordetella
  • 12-month supply of flea, tick, and heartworm prevention
Wellness Plans For Cats

Your feline friend's wellness plan will usually include:

  • Routine wellness exams
  • Annual core vaccination
  • Bi-annual intestinal parasite screenings
  • 12-month supply of flea & tick prevention

Remember: pet insurance and wellness plans are different things! Wellness plans focus mostly on routine preventive care services; pet insurance is geared towards emergency care and ongoing health conditions.
