Many of the issues that we see affecting cats can often be identified early. With rapid intervention, illnesses can be delayed, or even prevented entirely, depending on the condition. Regular check-ups at the vet are very important for monitoring an animal's general health as they go through different life stages, but more often than not, the cost of consultation fees and medications may result in pet owners becoming reluctant to book an appointment.
The Pet Health Plan that we offer is focused on illness prevention and is designed to help you take control of your cat's health by alleviating much of the costs associated with vet visits. It helps you to be prepared for the future, by keeping your pet healthy throughout their life, rather than your cat only visiting us when they are sick. It is also a great addition to your own pet insurance, as insurance may help to pay for expensive treatments not covered by our plan.
The regular plan price is just €15 a month. There is also the option of the 'Plus Plan' which includes flea and worm treatment for the year, and is €21 a month.
Once your cat is on the plan, there are many free or discounted services that can be availed ofincluding:
- Unlimited consultations with the vet .
- Booster vaccinations (including Cat flu, enteritis and FeLV vaccines).
- Annual blood and urine tests.
- Parasite control for the year (on the Plus Plan)
- 10% discount on neutering (20% off from now until June 30th).
- 20% discount on all Royal Canin food.
In later blogs coming out this year, these benefits will be explained in more detail so that you can gain a greater insight into what the plan has to offer you and your pet.
Your pet will definitely experience the benefits of a happier, healthier life and they may even begin to realise that they don't just come to the vet to be poked with needles! We hope to give you some peace of mind that your cat's health and well-being is being actively looked after, and that cost is not a prohibiting factor in coming to see us. If you have any questions about the Pet Health Plan, or if you want to join today, call any of our clinics and our staff will be more than happy to talk you through it and sign you up. There is also the option of signing up through our website if you would prefer.
Looking forward to your next visit!
