4 reasons why investing in a Pet Health Plan is the Best Decision for Your Pet's Well-being
As a pet owner, ensuring your furry companion's health and happiness is a top priority. While regular exercise, a healthy diet, and lots of love and attention are essential, investing in a preventive pet health plan can offer numerous additional benefits. Here are the top 4 reasons to consider:
Routine check-ups are essential to pet health care, just as they are for humans. Regular check-ups allow veterinarians to monitor and detect any health issues early on, preventing them from becoming more severe and more costly to treat later. Luckily, pet health plans cover these regular check-ups, providing security and reassurance to pet owners and allowing for early detection and prevention of illnesses.
Preventative care is also crucial for your pet's long-term health. Pet health plans typically cover vaccinations and additional preventive measures such as worming and flea and tick prevention, helping your pet stay healthy and protect them against deadly diseases.
Diseases such as cat diabetes, dog diabetes, renal, liver and heart disease are much more manageable if diagnosed early. A preventive health plan can also provide discounts on veterinary diets, giving them the best start and nutrition throughout their life. A good quality diet is one of the best preventative care options.
Some plans may include urine tests, which could save your pet’s life by flagging up health issues such as diabetes, and liver or renal disease before it becomes life-threatening. Regular dental care reduces the chance of cavities, extractions and gingivitis, which is painful for your pet, and poor dental care can also cause heart and kidney disease. Keeping your pet's teeth in tip-top condition may help them live a longer and happier life.
Most plans allow you to spread the cost of preventive health care across 12 months and also include discounts to help reduce the costs of some products and services offered by the clinic. Rather than having one big bill, this is spread across the year making preventive veterinary care more manageable and accessible for your pet.
Peace of mind
Investing in a pet health plan also provides pet owners with peace of mind, knowing that their pet’s preventive health care needs are covered.
With the variety of pet health plans available, it is essential to choose a plan that meets the specific needs of your pet and fits your budget. One of the best ways to choose the right plan is by talking to a member of the team, who will guide you through the different options and help you make an informed decision to keep your pet healthy, happy, and covered. Investing in a preventive health plan is one of the best decisions for your pet's well-being.
It is important to note that a pet health plan is not a replacement for cat insurance or dog insurance. Pet insurance doesn’t tend to cover preventive health care such as vaccination, wellness screening or parasite care, but is there for when your pet is sick or requires emergency treatment. By having insurance and a preventive health plan for your pet you are ultimately giving your furry companion the best possible care, helping them to live a long and happy life.
