INSURANCE

PET HEALTH INSURANCE.
Pet insurance helps make vet bills affordable.
We want you and your pets to have the best coverage and health care available.

At San Clemente Veterinary Hospital, we recommend pet health insurance to nearly all our clients. It’s a great way to help budget for pet health care costs and protect you financially in the case of a pet’s unexpected accident or illness.

Pet health insurance can help to provide peace of mind knowing you may have help with future vet bills. Pet insurance plans can typically include reimbursement for:

* Emergency Visits, Prescriptions, Lab Tests
* Exams Cancer Hospitalization
* Surgery X-rays and more…
 
PET INSURANCE HAS COME OF AGE!! WE HIGHLY ADVOCATE THAT YOU INSURE YOUR PETS HEALTH BY PURCHASING A PLAN TODAY.
There are now many available policies to choose from.. It is really wise to shop for the policy that best meets the needs of your budget and your treatment philosophy.

The following guidelines may be helpful:

If you want very comprehensive coverage, look at policies offered by “Healthy Paws” and “Trupanion”. These companies are the only ones currently available that cover up to 90% of all expenses (minus your deductible) and do not limit the amount of payout per incident ot lifetime.

Alternatively, other policies such as “Pet Plan”, “Pet’s Best”, “Nationwide”, “ASPCA”, "Embrace" have a buy-up style of underwriting. These policies can fall short when major expenses occur if you choose the lowest premium they have. They can have claim caps which limit the payout per incident .

Most vet bills are under $300.00…but major medical/surgical problems such as intestinal blockages that require surgery, cancer treatment, vehicular injuries, dog attacks warranting reconstructive surgery, snakebites etc. can all cost thousands of dollars to treat. In the big scheme of things, more coverage is cheap to acquire.

We suggest the following web link which compares major pet insurance carriers: www.consumersadvocate.org

 
**Not all pet insurance are alike, so do your research. We do not advocate any one company, but have placed some links on this site for your convenience. They will guide you to comparable and affordable pet health insurance companies, that we feel deliver good value.

Cat wellness package
CAT WELLNESS PACKAGE

ADULT CAT.
Most adult cats can be given vaccine boosters every 3 years. It is considered wise to not vaccinate for all diseases on the same day.
An outdoor cat that is vaccinated for FVRCP, FeLV, and Rabies, will receive each vaccine in sequence on a yearly basis (ie. 2012 FVRCP, 2013 FeLV, and 2014 Rabies), along with their annual exam. We can adjust the sequence of vaccines dependent on the individual cats' vaccine history.
 
AGING CAT.
Aging cats tend to have more health problems and an annual examination, blood pressure testing, and blood and urine screening is strongly encouraged.
Most older cats are brought to us sick and losing weight or after they have turned critical.
Wellness exams help to identify problems before they strike out and cause serious symptoms. If you want to be sure that your aging feline is in tip-top shape, we advocate that you take advantage of the savings and have this done every year or two.
 
INDOOR - OUTDOOR.
Indoor cats are vaccinated only for FVRCP (feline distemper and upper respiratory viruses) Outdoor cats need more protection against rabies and feline leukemia viruses.
 
ADULT CAT PRICING.
ADULT or GERIATRIC FELINE WELLNESS PACKAGE:
48% discount applied to the regular pricing of the combined benefits below.
 
BENEFITS.
- a 20 to 30 minute exam/consultation with your doctor
- blood pressure check (very important in older cats-this is the “silent killer” of cats)
- whole body x-ray

- fecal testing for parasites

We urge you to take advantage of this fantastic wellness value!

Wellness Packages are only available to animals that have no symptoms. Sick or injured pets are not eligible for wellness testing. Standard laboratory and medical fees will apply under such circumstances.
