What are they?
Our Pet Health Plans are a specially developed all-round package offering expert preventative care and health checks for cats, dogs and rabbits. They offer aspects of pet care that are not usually included within insurance plans, meaning that they can work well as a stand-alone product or combined with pet insurance.
An integral part of family life, cats, dogs and rabbits are often thought of and treated as family members. However, it can be difficult to know that you are doing your best for them and sometimes it is easy to miss tell-tale signs of when they are feeling under the weather or when old age is starting to catch up with them. Even when you do spot the signs, many of the ‘do it yourself’ remedies available from supermarkets and pet stores don’t help as you may not know what the problem is - or if there is a problem at all! We believe that regular check ups are key to a pet’s well being and the only way to ensure that you have a clear picture of your pet’s health is through regular check-ups. Preventing illnesses and detecting signs at an early stage is important to your pet’s health.

How do I join?
The answer is easy - just visit the practice and complete a registration form or telephone 0800 169 9958. Please remember we will need the details of your bank account to set up the direct debit. Charges vary depending on the size and age of your pet and our staff will be happy to quote these to you and answer any questions you may have.
Is it the same as an insurance policy?
No a PHP is not an insurance policy - insurance policies provide protection against accident and illness. However we do recommend that you also consider insurance cover for such eventualities and the two products do work well together to provide all round security for you and your pet.
