Wellness Plans from our Mooresville veterinary clinic and Pet Insurance are two great options that can help to make your pet’s healthcare more affordable. That said, both options cover very different veterinary services, so it's important to understand which services your pet is covered for before heading to the vet's office.
Protecting Your Pet's Future
Wellness Plans and pet insurance policies help to make healthcare more affordable, however they offer very different benefits.
To avoid unexpected vet bills, it's important to understand what types of services your pet is and is not covered for, before heading to your pet's vet appointment.
What is a Wellness Plan?
Wellness Plans help to make routine annual healthcare more affordable by discounting the price of services then dividing the annual cost of your pet's healthcare into twelve easy payments.
Wellness plans have the added benefit of allowing you to adopt a more proactive approach to your pets veterinary care. Regular veterinary visits allow your vet to monitor your pet's health and spot the signs of any health issues early, before they become more serious and potentially more expensive to treat.
What does a Wellness Plan cover?
Wellness Plans cover routine healthcare for your cat or dog including vaccines, wellness exams, parasite prevention medications, and annual blood testing.
With Wellness Plans, maintaining your cat or dog's overall health throughout their lifetime is made easier by spreading out the cost of routine vet care.
What is pet insurance?
If your pet needs emergency veterinary care due to an accident or illness, pet insurance helps you to pay for your pet's treatment.
Emergency care or treatment for illnesses such as cancer or diabetes can become very expensive. Your pet insurance will help you to pay the veterinary care bills for any conditions or accidents that are covered by your specific pet insurance policy.
What does pet insurance cover?
Pet insurance policies differ greatly based on the provider and the level of coverage you choose, however they generally cover treatment for illnesses or emergency treatment required after accidents.
Some policies also pay for prescription medications and the treatment of orthopedic conditions, and hereditary and congenital conditions.
How do I choose which option to buy?
Deciding which coverage is right for you and your pet can be challenging. Some pet owners opt for both a Wellness Plan and Pet Insurance to help make sure that they are never surprised by unexpected vet bills.
