Our Healthy Pet Scheme has been specifically designed to provide annual routine preventative healthcare, which your cat or dog will require throughout the year at a discount, i.e. vaccination, worming and parasite treatment. At present, the majority of pet insurance policies do not cover preventative healthcare.
COVID-19 – VIP/Healthcare Scheme
Please note that whilst restrictions on travel and essential journeys are in place, we will not be able to accommodate the preventative health assessment as this cannot be deemed as essential.
It is accepted that these check-ups are usually included as part of the Healthcare Scheme, but we must adhere to any guidelines set by the government or Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. Health assessments will be provided at vaccination appointments. We are happy to provide preventative treatments for parasites, discounted food and allowed vaccinations; the scheme offers substantial savings on many products and services outside of this assessment. If you have any concerns regarding your pet's well-being please contact the surgery.
Your monthly premium entitles you to the following:
Twice Yearly Health Assessments
Your pet will be invited to twice-yearly health assessments (puppies and kittens will be invited to attend quarterly assessments) at which point you will be given the next three/six month’s supply of flea/worming preparations. It is therefore very important that you attend the Health Assessments, as this is the only way in which you can obtain the above products.
For Dogs - Distemper, Parvovirus, Hepatitis and Leptospirosis.
For Cats - Feline Enteritis, Flu and Feline Leukaemia Virus.
Whether you are starting a full vaccination course or renewing your booster, you will be entitled to a 15% discount off the normal price and your next booster will be covered in full by the scheme. (After the qualifying period).
Full Worming Programme
Our product of choice is a prescription-only medication that treats both roundworms and tapeworms; this should be administered every 3 months (more frequently for puppies and kittens).
Full Flea and Tick Programme
We have taken into account recent research and current recommendations and are now using a market-leading, exceptionally effective prescription product. This only needs to be administered once every 3 months and provides protection against both fleas and ticks. The cat preparation is a spot-on product which avoids the necessity of 'tableting' your cat.
