You've been through a lot these last couple of years. So in 2022, let's keep the stress to a minimum and cover our bases with Wagmo pet insurance and a pet wellness plan. Routine pet care with a pet wellness plan can help ensure our animals stay healthy. These annual pet health exams help catch any illnesses or potential diseases before they become too damaging. Here is a list of tests and exams a Wagmo pet wellness plan will cover:
A pet fecal exam is exactly what it sounds like. Your vet and vet technicians will be testing your animal's stool. It is a very common and effective way to diagnose our pets' health conditions. Many veterinarians recommend fecal exams as a part of routine pet care. This is why we will cover these exams through Wagmo's pet wellness plans.
Types of health conditions a fecal exam can detect:
- Intestinal worm parasites (such as hookworms or roundworms)
- Gastrointestinal issues
If your animal is suffering from a parasite left undetected, it can pass the parasite on to humans. So it's essential to get them routinely checked for their safety and yours. Wagmo pet wellness plans cover fecal exams so that you can add them to the list of routine pet care you do to keep your pet nice and healthy.
Routine blood work is one of the best and most accurate ways for a vet to determine a health condition in our animals. A blood test will almost always be recommended as a part of a routine pet care exam and when you bring in a sick animal for diagnosis. The results from other exams such as a fecal or urinalysis exam will tell the vet a lot of information, then combined with bloodwork, everything becomes clearer.
Types of health conditions pet blood work can detect:
- Pancreatic issues
- Kidney disease or kidney failure
- Heart conditions
- And more.
As your pet ages, you should bring them in for routine pet care, like bloodwork, every 6-12 months. The faster a vet can spot a health condition, the better you can treat it. Reverse or managing a health condition becomes easier when detected early on. If your animal has already been diagnosed with any heart or blood pressure condition, it should regularly get blood work.
Wagmo's pet wellness plans will cover one round of routine blood work every year. Get peace of mind knowing that your animal is healthy without paying out of pocket.
This is a very common exam that our veterinarians will do to diagnose an illness and as a part of a routine checkup. Pet urinalysis exams can catch all sorts of different diseases and health conditions that could be affecting our animal's quality of life. Urinalysis for our pets involves a visual exam, microscopic evaluations, and dipstick tests.
Types of health conditions a urinalysis exam detect:
- Urinary Tract Infections (can be common in cats)
- Kidney damage or disease
- Bladder health
- Liver function
- Glucose regulation
Pet owners should pay attention to routine vaccinations as one of the most important aspects of pet care. Our Wagmo pet wellness plans can cover up to 4 vaccinations every year. This means you can get your pet all their necessary vaccinations and boosters each year without paying anything but your low monthly charge. This alone is worth looking into a pet wellness plan.
Types of health conditions vaccinations save our pets from:
- Canine periodontitis (dog gum disease)
- Feline Immunodeficiency Disease (FIV)
- Feline Distemper
- And so many more.
