What is a Wellness Plan?

Pet insurance wellness plans reimburse you for some of the costs of regular veterinary care, such as physical exams and dental cleanings. Unlike standard pet insurance, they do not cover accidents or illnesses, but they help you pay for routine veterinary care. Wellness plans are also known as “preventive plans” or “routine care add-ons” because they help you with the costs of preventative care like vaccinations, heartworm testing, dental cleanings, and other procedures and checkups that can help your pet avoid illness.

How Wellness Plans Work

A wellness plan can be added to your regular pet insurance policy (or purchased separately) to make your regular veterinarian visits more affordable. Many wellness plans start at less than $10 per month. Pet parents with a new puppy/kitten can see even greater value from a wellness plan since puppies and kittens need to be taken to the veterinarian more often for vaccinations and checkups.


Key Takeaways

  • Unlike regular pet insurance, wellness plans help with the cost of routine veterinary care, such as dental cleanings, regular vet visits, and vaccinations.
  • Wellness plans often start at less than $10 a month.
