Delmar Animal Hospital is unveiling a new program called Budgeted Wellness Care. This program has been developed to help you budget for the preventative care of your beloved pets!
Preventative care includes annual exams, vaccines, screening tests, heartworm prevention (like Heartgard) and ectoparasite (flea/tick) prevention (like Nexgard, Bravecto, Vectra, Revolution).
Animals who routinely receive preventative care are known to live longer, healthier lives. Budgeting for that care allows the pet owner to ensure their pet receives the healthcare they deserve through regular yearly visits to their veterinarian. When a veterinarian sees a pet regularly, they are more adept at picking up on problems because they know that animal well.
Budgeted Wellness Care is NOT pet insurance and does not cover any surgeries, medications or sick care. It is meant only to allow pet owners to divide the wellness care (annual preventative care) into manageable monthly amounts that can be automatically debited from a checking or savings account, debit or credit card.
At your pet's next annual visit, the reception staff and veterinarian will be available to discuss Budgeted Wellness Care and answer any questions you may have about this program. If you are interested, your pet's individualized preventative care program for the following year will be budgeted into 12 automatic monthly payments. When you return next year, your pet's wellness care will be provided and the invoice will have been prepaid.
Budgeted Wellness Care is a new program that allows the dedicated pet owner to divide the annual preventative care package for their pet into affordable monthly chunks.
When you arrive for your pet's annual wellness exam (not a sick visit), you will get more information about this program. Your veterinarian will decide on the preventative care needed for your pet and go over the list of suggested services and products for the following year. That total is divided by 12 months and the monthly budget is set. If you wish, we will establish you as a PaymentBanc client for $25 and that monthly budget will be deducted from the account of your choice (check/ savings/debit card/credit card MC/Visa/Discover) over the next 12 months. When you return next year your pet's care is prepaid at this year's prices!
While it is $25 to use this service, we expect that cost to be offset by the fact that you are getting services at the current years pricing. If, at any time and for any reason prior to the pet's next annual visit, you decide you want that money back it can be returned to you IN FULL except for the $25 PaymentBanc charge.
THIS IS NOT PET INSURANCE.
NOR DOES THIS COVER ANY MEDICATIONS, SICK CARE, SURGERY or ANY other charges not listed in the veterinarian's recommended preventative care schedule provided to you at the sign up.
