Do you have more pets than children and are a pet parent who lives paycheck to paycheck wondering if you can afford a pet wellness plan? Well, the good news is that Wagmo's pet wellness plans give pet owners lots of options in terms of coverage and cost. But wouldn't it be nice if our employers also offered pet wellness benefits instead of other benefits we never use? Let's dive into why employee pet benefits are fantastic for individuals and employers.
What Are Employee Pet Benefits?
Unlike many other painful and confusing insurance experiences you might have had in the past, Wagmo pet benefits are different. We aim to make our pet wellness and pet insurance plans easy for everyone to understand, easy to sign up, easy to use, and easy to get reimbursed.
Wagmo Pet Wellness Plans
A Wagmo Pet Wellness plan is different from pet insurance because pet wellness coverage is made for routine and preventative pet care coverage, rather than emergencies. This means that our pet wellness plans cover costs that pet owners would be paying for every year anyways. Such as:
- Fecal exams
- Vet routine exams
- Dental care
- Heartworm prevention
- Flea & Tick prevention
These exams help veterinarians do a complete exam of your pet annually. They get to know your animal and offer them better care as they age. If something is wrong with your animal's health, a pet wellness plan can help spot it before it gets too severe. These plans are for routine care, and they can save your animal's life.
Pet wellness plans are very affordable for pet parents and can help them save 600+ dollars every year in routine pet care.
Wagmo Pet Insurance Plans
Wagmo Pet Insurance is the type of pet benefit you need in an emergency. So this can be when your dog gets injured or when your dog becomes ill. Wagmo pet insurance helps cover it all, from your pet eating something they shouldn't to pet cancer treatments. Some of the main perks you will receive from a Wagmo pet insurance plan include:
- Prescription medications
- CT Scans
- Laboratory Tests
- Cancer Treatments
- Hereditary and congenital conditions
- Prosthetics and orthopedics
- Hip dysplasia
- End of life care (euthanasia)
- Pet ambulance
- And more!
Seemingly simple things like an X-Ray could cost pet owners anywhere from $75-$500. And surgeries have a range from $400-$5000. This money is not usually something pet owners have sitting around in the case of an emergency. Pet insurance benefits are more important to many employees and individuals than other benefits that their employees are currently offering.
The best part about having employee pet insurance is the peace of mind it gives you. Plus, we make it super easy to get reimbursed, so you are never out of pocket.
