What is Vet Labor?

Vet labor is the physical and mental effort and service performed by veterinary professionals to treat and protect the health of animals. It includes services like routine veterinary exams, diagnosing health problems, providing treatment to animals, as well as performing surgeries. It also includes things you may not have considered like researching medical conditions, preparing for appointments, filling out medical records, and following up with clients via phone and email about their pets medical results or health while they’re at home.

Vet labor dedicated to your pet starts before you walk into the veterinary practice and often continues for many hours to days after your pet leaves the clinic. Vet labor is built into the cost of any veterinary bill you receive.

How Vet Labor Works

Pet insurance plans reimburse you for the cost of eligible veterinary expenses, such as care for accidents, illnesses, and even routine veterinary costs. With veterinary prices on the rise, pet insurance provides a financial buffer and peace of mind knowing that you’ll be able to provide your pet with the best veterinary care.
