6 Benefits to Pet Wellness Plans

Why are more pet parents signing up for wellness plans? In this post, our Powder Springs vets list some benefits of wellness plans for your beloved feline friend or canine companion. 

No pet owner likes to think of their beloved animal being ill or hurt, it's always best to be as prepared as possible. You may choose to pair your veterinary wellness plan with pet insurance to help ensure your pet has easy access to both routine and emergency care

Benefits of Wellness Plans

You understand it's a large responsibility to ensure your cat or dog lives a healthy, happy life. You have several options to help increase their chances: providing affection, exercise, a good diet, play...and routine preventive vet care. Wellness Plans give your veterinary team the chance to watch your pet's health and well-being closely, and this can help them live a longer, happier life. 

Preventive Care

When it comes to your pet's health, prevention is almost always the best 'treatment' option. You may have an easier time taking precautions to keep preventable illnesses or conditions from becoming a problem in the first place. By taking your dog or cat in for regular veterinary checkups, any potential issues can be caught early. Detecting illness early leads to better outcomes from treatment to management. 

Support Good Pet Care

You're more likely to use pet health care services if you have easy access to them. More veterinary checkups can help your pooch or kitty stay healthier at home, making your job of providing daily ongoing care easier. 


You may find it less stressful and easier to budget for your pet's routine care with a Wellness Plan. Pet insurance and Wellness Plan can offer security; most care services that your adorable cat or dog may need will be covered by these — which you'll likely prefer to having to pay for treatment unexpectedly out of pocket. 


Signing up for Wellness Plans can help you to save money! Many offer discounts on routine services, although each veterinary office will include or exclude different services. Contact your veterinarian today to find out about their wellness plans and what they do or don't cover. 

Be Prepared for Emergencies

Pet owners dread the thought of their pets being injured or becoming ill, but it's important to be ready. A lot of wellness plans include a set number of veterinary examinations as part of the package, which can be very helpful when it comes to getting urgent care for your dog or cat. 

Unique Plans for Unique Pets

Every pet is special and has unique needs. While there are obvious differences in plans for cats vs. dogs, there are also differences between different sizes of dogs! A giant breed dog has different health and wellness needs from a small dog breed. Speak with your veterinarian for help selecting the best plan for you and your pet!

Wellness Plans for Dogs 

For your canine companion, wellness plans often include:

  • Routine wellness exams
  • Core vaccinations
  • Bloodwork
  • Annual heartworm & tick disease testing
  • Bi-annual intestinal parasite screenings
  • Bi-annual wellness exam with bordetella
  • 12-month supply of flea, tick, and heartworm prevention
Wellness Plans for Cats

Your feline friend's wellness plan will usually include:

  • Routine wellness exams
  • Annual core vaccination
  • Bi-annual intestinal parasite screenings
  • 12-month supply of flea & tick prevention

Remember: pet insurance and wellness plans are different things! Wellness plans focus mostly on routine preventive care services; pet insurance is geared towards emergency care and ongoing health conditions.
