Are you debating whether or not pet insurance for your cat is necessary? Or if you will use a dog wellness plan? These are conundrums pet owners find themselves in, so let us help. This blog goes over the different perks of a pet wellness plan for your cat and dog.
What Does A Pet Wellness Plan Cover?
Many pet parents know that pet insurance can help cover emergency vet costs for when a pet becomes suddenly ill or injured. But many pet parents are sleeping on all of the benefits that a routine care pet insurance plan, such as a Wagmo wellness plan, can cover.
A pet wellness plan is made for pet owners to use often. It is for helping cover routine care that most pet owners would be paying for out of pocket anyway. While Wagmo pet insurance is here to help your pet with major things such as surgeries, prescription medication, diagnostic imaging, cancer treatment, etc., a Wagmo pet wellness plan covers day-to-day healthcare, for example:
- Routine Exams - Up to 2 annually
- Vaccinations - Up to 4 annually
- Blood Work - 1 annually
- Fecal Tests - 1 annually
- Urinalysis - 1 annually
- Flea / Tick / Heartworm Care - Up to $200
- Grooming - Up to $200
- Dental - Up to $100
With a Wagmo pet wellness plan, you can save hundreds of dollars every year while making sure your animal is as healthy as can be. But is it still necessary? Let’s dive into why a pet wellness plan benefits your fur babies.
Wagmo Wellness For Cats
While your cat will be able to take advantage of all a Wagmo pet wellness plan has to offer, some specific benefits can specifically benefit a cat and their routine cat care. Many indoor cat parents don’t realize that their cats are still at risk for different illnesses and issues and that both Wagmo pet insurance and Wagmo pet wellness plan can help.
Vaccines are a great part of routine cat care and can protect your indoor and outdoor cats from different parasites, such as worms. Intestinal worms are prevalent in cats, including tapeworms, roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and many others. If left untreated, these worms can be passed on to humans.
Vaccines are also vital to help your cat avoid:
- Feline Immunodeficiency Disease (FIV)
- Feline Distemper
- Feline Herpesvirus
- Feline Leukemia
- And more.
Urinalysis can help diagnose a cat with Feline Lower Urinary Tract Diseases (FLUTD). This is quite common and can affect 3% of cats. If you notice anything off with your cat’s litter box behavior, the veterinarian can conduct Urinalysis that would be covered under a Wagmo pet wellness plan.
Regular blood work can also help our veterinarians catch an illness or condition in our cats before our cats show signs of illness. Often, if your vet is curious to learn more about your cat and diagnose a potential health issue, they will almost always want to do some blood work. Blood work can be a very beneficial part of routine cat care.
Grooming is not just for the dogs! Many cats attend regular grooming appointments to clean and manage their long fur coats, shave and manage hair for summer, and trim their nails! Trimming your cat’s nails at home can quickly become a blood bath, so some opt to leave it to the professional groomers.
Wagmo Wellness For Dogs
Dogs almost definitely will need a Wagmo pet health insurance plan if they become ill or injured - especially if they join you on hikes and outdoor adventures. But what exactly are the additional perks of adding a pet wellness plan to your dog's healthcare?
Vaccinations and vaccine boosters are recommended annually for our dogs. This means you are paying out of pocket to keep your dog healthy every year. But with a pet wellness plan, you can get coverage for up to 4 vaccinations annually. This will cover vaccinations for rabies, canine periodontitis, Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus (DHLPPC), and more!
Dental coverage is one of the most beneficial parts of a pet wellness plan. This is because many issues with a dog’s teeth and gums can lead to other, potentially fatal, health issues. Dog dental disease affects 80% of adult dogs and 96% of senior dogs. So the chances are good that your dog will develop dog dental disease without routine dog healthcare.
Dog grooming is another major perk of signing up for a pet wellness plan. Almost every dog breed out there can benefit from routine grooming. This includes not only giving them a good, bubbly bath but includes a long list of benefits such as:
- Detangling hair and reducing the risk of mats
- Brushing the dog gets rid of harmful oils and dead skin
- Nail trimming for reducing the risk of nail tears and cracks
- Groomers handling/massage allows them to notice bumps and any skin irritation
- Teeth brushing and ear cleaning are also nothing but beneficial
