Preventive Care for Dogs and Cats is an Optimum Wellness Plan Priority

Preventive Care for Dogs and Cats is an Optimum Wellness Plan Priority

At Banfield, we believe in preventing pet health issues before they happen. With Banfield’s Optimum Wellness Plans®, you receive a package of preventive pet health care services and discounts designed to meet the needs of your individual pet. It’s a proactive approach to your pet’s health care that allows us to see, treat, and prevent problems ahead of time.

What comes with an Optimum Wellness Plan®

Optimum Wellness Plans® include an established schedule of care that’s just right for your pet. Since dogs and cats age much more quickly than humans, the most important thing you can do to help get your pet the personalized care he or she deserves is to allow your local veterinarian to perform two comprehensive check-ups per year.

During these in-depth, nose-to-tail exams, the veterinarian will assess your pet’s overall health and establish a baseline of wellness information. That way, if any health issues occur, they can be taken care of right away. Regular comprehensive exams are always part of your pet’s wellness plan and include:

  • Ear exam
  • Eye exam
  • Dental exam
  • Neurological evaluation
  • Cardiovascular evaluation
  • Weight and nutrition counseling
  • Coat and skin evaluation
  • Abdominal palpation
  • Urogenital evaluation
  • Musculoskeletal evaluation
  • Pulmonary/lung evaluation

Protecting Your Pet with the Optimum Wellness Plan

Our Optimum Wellness Plans protect your pet against a wide variety of diseases and infections through routinely recommended vaccines and deworming treatments tailored to your pet’s individual needs.

Just like you, your pet needs annual professional dental cleanings to stay healthy. Teeth cleanings are included in some of our wellness plans. One of the most common diseases found in pets is dental disease, and it causes more than just bad breath and gingivitis. If dental disease is not treated, it can lead to painful infections and tooth loss. It could also be associated with serious illness in other parts of your pet’s body like the heart and kidneys.

Personalize Your Pet’s Plan

What’s great, too, is that your pet’s plan can be personalized with additional preventive care options including monthly parasite treatment for year-round protection. Your Banfield veterinarian can help recommend the best plan and options for your pet.

Preventive pet health care is one of the best ways to keep your pet healthy. So when you enroll your pet on a wellness plan, you’ll be establishing a schedule of preventive care created specifically for your pet. Services are provided at a discount and the cost of care is spread over 12 months, making it a simple and affordable way to maintain and improve the overall health of your pet.
