You may have seen other wellness plans at other veterinary hospitals (maybe even a big corporate one inside of a large pet store), but please do not confuse what they do and what we do. Many of the wellness plans that are out there are loaded with a bunch of unnecessary stuff to increase the perceived value of the plans but are really just fluff. Most of the plans DO NOT include a year supply of flea and antiparasitics (heartworm) medications. Ours do. When you add in that expense, our plan is more affordable than the large corporate plans and it actually provides for what your pet needs. If you have gotten this far and haven’t watched the entire video above we would highly recommend you do. We promise you will learn how to better care for your pet and understand why we have each of these items in our Wellness Plan.
If you have any questions, please reach out to us and we can help answer any questions, schedule an appointment, or just chat about how great San Diego is.
