Protecting Your Pet's Future
Wellness Plans and pet insurance policies both help to make healthcare more affordable, yet they offer very different benefits.
Before taking your pet in to see your South Wilton vet, It’s important to understand what types of services your pet is and isn't covered for, based on the coverage you choose.
What is a Wellness Plan?
Wellness Plans make it easier for you to cover the cost of routine annual veterinary care by offering a discount and then dividing the annual cost of your pet's healthcare into twelve easy payments.
Wellness plans allow you to adopt a more proactive approach to your pet's veterinary care, and allow your vet to diagnose and treat conditions early, before becoming more serious and potentially more expensive to treat.
What does a Wellness Plan cover?
Wellness Plans cover routine veterinary care for your cat or dog including wellness exams, parasite prevention medications, annual blood testing, and vaccines.
With Wellness Plans, maintaining and improving the standard of your cat or dog's overall health during their lifetime is made easier by spreading out the cost of routine vet care.
What Is Pet Insurance?
If your pet requires emergency veterinary care or is diagnosed with a serious illness covered by your policy, 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. Pet insurance helps you to pay the bills for any conditions or accidents that are covered by your pet insurance policy.
What Does Pet Insurance Cover?
It's important to note that pet insurance policies differ 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 pet insurance policies may also pay for prescription medications and the treatment of hereditary and congenital conditions and orthopedic conditions.
How Do I Choose Which Option To Buy?
Some pet owners opt for both forms of coverage to avoid being out of pocket when they visit the vet. Others find that just one form of coverage is enough to help them cover their pet's healthcare needs.
Wondering which coverage is right for you? Speak to your South Wilton veterinarian. They can help you decide based on your pet's particular needs and concerns.
