At the Ann Arbor Animal Hospital we think it's important to focus on the preventive health of your pet. It leads to a higher quality of life for them and saves you money. In this post we dive into the numbers to demonstrate why a PHP saves money and we give a few examples of people who have saved on a PHP.
We launched our Preventive Health Plans back in March of 2014. Since then we've been listening to client feedback so we could make them better, and in November we dropped a few plans and added some new ones.
Preventive veterinary health care is an approach that seeks to keep our furry friends as healthy as possible for as long as possible. Our laboratory partner, Idexx Reference Laboratories, is offering an early screening test for kidney disease (SDMA levels) in dogs and cats with all routine profiles at no additional cost later this summer.
Similar to the first two life stages, as your cat's or dog's body ages, their medical needs change. As humans reach their "golden years" we can feel the effects of aging over the course of a few years or sometimes only one. Our pets however, age roughly 7 years for each one of ours! A
As your dog or cat ages and matures from puppy or kitten, its body changes, too. Through practicing preventive medicine, our goal is to keep your adult dog or cat happy and healthy during the prime years of his or her life.
We strongly encourage puppy and kitten owners to visit the Ann Arbor Animal Hospital as soon as possible after they’ve brought their new family member home. This allows our veterinarians to assess your new puppy or kitten’s health and get them started on the services we deem critical for making sure they’re protected.
It's hard for us to believe that a whole year has passed since we launched our Preventive Health Plans. Our commitment to providing high quality veterinary care to our clients and patients at a lower cost continues to motivate and inspire us, and our Preventive Health Plans give you the option to save money while keeping up with your pet's routine care.
