The importance of a health maintenance plan

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

I certainly don’t want this post to be perceived as an advertisement, but one thing that has been on my mind as we start this journey is that I am very thankful for the care that Nikki has received up to this point.

When Nikki was a puppy we enrolled her in a “puppy plan” from Banfield (Banfield is a national veterinary center here in the States, they have locations inside many PetSmart stores, but also have stand-alone centers) and kept her on that for her first year. Then we let it slide…

Early last year we decided to get Nikki back on a health plan, mainly because we were taking her in for normal vaccination boosters and noticed the money we’d save.

I honestly believe that decision saved Nikki’s life! (Yes, I know we’re just now starting this journey, but I don’t think Nikki would be with us today if we hadn’t caught this in time) and I know it’s saved us a LOT of money, which certainly reduces the stress that one feels at this time.

So, if you’re reading this and your pet is not on a health-maintenance plan, look into one NOW!

You can read about the plan we have Nikki on here:

I highly recommend Banfield. They truly care about the animals that they serve, and are not afraid to send you to experts when the problem is beyond them.

    That’s some good advice! I wish that I had done that before my Jake’s diagnosis…

    I totally understand how financial issues can cause alot of extra stress with dealing with expensive cancer treatments with our babies…

    Good advice! I think all of us tripawd parents know how expensive this journey can become. You don’t need the added financial stress on top of everything else!
