Excellent Pet Health Care Shouldn’t be a Painful Decision
Staying on top of your pet’s health should be a priority. We love our pets like we love our family members but when money is a concern, our pets have to be a lower priority. We’ve all been there. That limp we catch, the lump we see, the lethargy, the occasional stomach upset or just the annual exam and vaccinations we’ve been told are important. Let’s wait a few days and see what happens. I’ll do some research, diagnosis myself and maybe find some simple home remedy or a less expensive store product.
Sometimes it seems simple enough and a wise financial decision to not spend time and money on a visit to the vet. And sometimes, it leaves a pit in our stomach with feelings of guilt. If we eventually make the tough decision to see a vet even just for the vaccinations we know are past-due, we may shop around for the lowest prices or look for a clinic that provides adequate “clinic-level” service.
You probably know that delaying your pet’s vaccinations or waiting to see if that limp improves may not be in your pet’s best interest. What you might not know is that putting off your pet’s wellness exams and treatment may cost you more in the long run…and drastically reduce your pet’s quality of life. You may not know until it’s too late, that ignoring the simple symptoms or avoiding the wellness diagnostic exams may have prevented a more serious condition or fatal illness.
Vet-hopping for the lowest price or settling for “clinic services” may also be a problem. A relationship with one veterinarian goes a long way in understanding your individual pet and monitoring and managing any existing or potential for conditions. Clinics can offer services like vaccinations or walk-in visits at the lowest cost because they work in volume. Treatment excellence and expertise is usually not what they offer.
Eagle’s Landing Veterinary Hospital is guided by the principle that no pet or pet owner should have to carry the burden of delaying health care nor should they have to settle for standard health care because money is a concern. Our vets are trained and certified in administering the most advanced wellness, diagnostic and treatment services available in the area. Our cutting-edge equipment, such as an x-ray machine used only for dental treatment and K-Laser therapy, are examples of advanced pet health care providing the best outcomes.
How do we make this level of care affordable for anyone? Our Perfect Wellness Plans™ are the key to affordability. Developed around the complete health care needs for every stage of a pet’s life, many basic services are free to Perfect Wellness Plan™ members. Many CDC and AVMA recommended services* that should be included in your pet’s health care but are often ignored, are also free with your small monthly premium. And our Perfect Wellness Plan™ members always receive a 10% discount on all other services.
One of the benefits of being a Perfect Wellness Plan™ member is we’ve removed that sticker-shock of the unexpected vet bill and made the cost of your pet’s health care more predictable…and affordable. We’ve even eliminated the need or desire to self-diagnose and treat that limp or upset stomach. Perfect Wellness Plan™ members have access to unlimited exams each year. Combined with the feature of free basic lab work and many diagnostic services, we hope we’ve succeeded in encouraging you to do the best for your pet. It may cost you nothing but time to stop by with questions or a “quick look” at what is bothering your pet.
Our mission at Eagle’s Landing Veterinary Hospital is to make sure that every pet lives as long and happy as possible. They deserve that, don’t they?
