A pet wellness plan covers routine visits to the vet and other routine health care such as annual vet checkups, lab work, blood work, vaccines, dental treatments and more. These routine treatments and checkups are essential to maintaining your pet’s health. A pet wellness plan often only covers preventive care and does not include accident and illness coverage, so most pet insurance companies call their wellness plans a preventive care plan.
Routine Wellness Plans for Dogs
Wellness pet insurance for dogs does not differ greatly from wellness plans for Cats. Preventative care packages for dogs typically cover routine health care, heartworm tests, blood tests, spaying and neutering, microchipping, and flea and tick medication. Feline routine care packages may include a FelV/FIV test.
Most companies offer the same price for wellness care packages for all ages and breeds of dogs. However, if you have an older pup, you may opt for a cheaper wellness plan that doesn’t include the health care dogs usually get when puppies, such as neutering or microchipping.
