When it comes to our pets, we all want to focus on what really matters: Their happiness! That’s why VCA hospitals offer CareClub, an affordable, long-term wellness plan to protect your pet’s health and help prevent illness and disease, no matter their age. HI Now host Jobeth Devera is with Dr. Noele Tom at VCA University Animal Hospital to talk about the program’s benefits.
CareClub offers separate plans for dogs and cats, and each is tailored to your pet’s life stage and wellness needs. The main plan types are: Junior, Adult, and Senior. Each of these three plan types have either a basic plan or a plus plan. The basic plan mainly includes vaccinations, blood work, and fecal checks with unlimited physical exams. The plus plan will include everything in the basic plan, plus a spay or neuter for our Junior patients and dental cleaning and dental x-rays for our Adult patients. Dr. Tom says pet owners find the most value in the Senior Plus plan, which includes everything in the basic plan with a larger, more comprehensive blood panel, plus a dental cleaning, dental x-rays, blood pressure checks, and chest and abdomen x-rays.
Great pet health care can be very expensive, so it was important for VCA to develop a way to make it more financially manageable for people to be great pet parents. The thing that separates its wellness plans apart from the rest is all of the perks that come along with being CareClub members. In addition to affordable monthly payments, there are also CareClub rewards where pet owners can earn points from qualifying purchases of preventatives and foods. CareClub members also have access to a veterinarian 24 hours a day, seven days a week!
