Do You Have a (Wellness) Plan?

Have you been looking for comprehensive pet insurance but are frustrated because most policies don’t include general pet wellness visits? You’re not alone. Many pet parents don’t realize that pet insurance differs from health insurance for humans in that most veterinary pet insurance plans don’t cover routine wellness visits and other services. They are designed to help you manage your budget and not break the bank for unplanned emergencies or major illnesses. But, if you are looking for a plan to cover routine visits and minor illnesses, there are options to get coverage for pet wellness visits.
