Which plan is right for my pet?

Under each pet plan, we have various package levels that determine which services are included. We encourage our pet parents to speak to our veterinarian about the services their pet may require over the years. The more extensive plans do cost more overall, but they provide the best coverage of services that may be required for your pet throughout their lifetime and can help you avoid the stress of unexpected pet care costs.

Dr. Venkat Gutta will only make recommendations based on the current health of the pet and the budget of the family. Wellness plans can be extremely affordable and provide a baseline level of care for your pet, though some pet families decide to invest more in their pet’s health to prepare for otherwise expensive services they may require down the road. We welcome families to discuss their options with our team to make an educated decision for their pet’s needs and possible future health concerns.

What about grooming?

Some of our wellness plans include discounts on grooming services as well, including nail trims and gland expressions. Pet families love the ability to care for their pet completely in our practice, with both medical needs and grooming solutions!
