Being prepared to care for your pet’s health care needs

By Dr. Dan Meakin

No one wants to imagine your pet having a health problem. Pets are family members, now more than ever, and we want to be able to care for them in the same manner. Unexpected health issues can spring up, just as with our human family members, and medical expenses can add up fast.

This is exactly why we’ve developed unique, and even customized wellness plans at All Creatures Animal hospital. Wellness plans are not pet insurance, but instead are a bundled group of services needed to prevent disease and provide the best medicine and protection for your pet.  They often have plan benefits, and can be funded either in full on the date of purchase, or by making monthly installments deducted directly from your checking or savings account. 

We examined wellness programs from many different veterinarians, and attended countless lectures at the North American Veterinary Conference to try to offer you the best possible care at the best price.  We think we have done just that, and we are all very pleased to offer you these plans, with all of the bundled products coming in at a 20% discount!

 For each category, we offer a basic plan.  That basic plan includes your pet’s needed vaccines, diagnostic testing, and wellness examinations.  Think of the vaccine packages we offer now and that is the basic package with the addition of a few “perks”.  First of all, your pet will get a minimum of 2 wellness visits, where he or she will receive a comprehensive examination from a veterinarian.  This is essential to good health and illness prevention.  

Besides the extra exam and vaccines you will receive the following in our basic plan:

10% off additional services and products.  If you have that emergency appointment, it will cost you less if you are a wellness plan member

Unlimited nail trims.  Oh yeah, no more blood trails through the kitchen, no more wrestling to trim that dewclaw, we have you covered with unlimited free nail trims!  

$20 co-pay for sick visits.  If your pet is sick, you will only pay a co-pay to see the vet, making your visit much more affordable.   

Each of the items in the plans are 20% off of our already low prices, making this program the most affordable wellness care we have ever offered!  

• Puppy Plans start at just $21/month

•Kitten Plans start at 22/month

• Dog Plans start at $15/month

• Cat Plans start at $14/month

Of course, some pets require more services because of their age, breed, or medical history.  Because of that, our plans are targeted, veterinarian driven, custom plans.

In addition to the basic plan, your vet will recommend additional services your pet needs based on the physical exam.

If you would like to do comprehensive blood work, we can add it.  X-Rays to check for tumors, we can add it.  Spay, Neuter, Declaw, ear cleanings, anal gland expression, glaucoma screenings – it can all be added into your personalized wellness plan.  We can find the right fit for you and your pet, and you can rest assured that you are providing the best preventative care for your pet.
