Wellness Plans - An Affordable Way To Help Your Pet Stay Healthy At Every Age

At Alta Vista we strongly believe that routine wellness and preventative medical care is an essential part of keeping your pet healthy. That’s why we offer nose-to-tail wellness exams to make sure your furry friend is in good shape and on the right track to a happy and healthy life.

Our licensed vets have extensive experience in all things animal-related and our friendly team will make your pet feel comfortable and right at home as soon as they walk in the door. When you bring your pet to Alta Vista, you receive advanced veterinary care delivered with compassion and respect. We work hard to make sure our wellness exams are based on the highest standards of modern medicine partnered with a true love of animals.

What to Expect

We recommend bringing your pet to Alta Vista Animal Hospital for a wellness exam once a year to receive:

  • A full nose-to-tail physical exam
  • Vaccinations. We offer special vaccination packages for new puppies and kittens
  • Bloodwork and urinalysis. Our in-house lab allows for quick analysis of routine tests and screens
  • Internal health check. We will test your pet’s heart health and examine the inner workings of their internal organs
  • Parasite prevention. A parasite prevention program helps keep your pet free of heartworms, roundworms, fleas, and ticks

Wellness Plans

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Wellness Plans the Same as Pet Insurance?
No. The purpose of our wellness plans is to ensure that your pet receives all of the preventive care needed to keep them healthy and to pro-actively prevent and/or detect diseases earlier rather than later.

Because we know that our clients are committed to doing what is best for their pets, we are offering monthly billing and auto-deduction to help our clients manage these costs. Wellness plans do not include services for illness, injury or emergencies.

Does My Pet Need A Wellness Plan?
Absolutely. From the time your pet is a puppy or a kitten to their most senior years, providing your pet with annual preventative healthcare is the best gift that you can give them.

Keeping your pet on a wellness plan helps to prevent diseases, and because our plans include two annual preventive care exams and diagnostic testing, if your pet does get sick it will be detected early on, which results in faster, more effective treatment.

What Happens if I Move or Need to Discontinue My Plan for Some Reason?
If you need to discontinue your plan during the annual cycle, please contact us immediately. We will calculate the retail value of the services that you have already used.

If this is less than the payments made to-date we will cancel your plan. If this is more than the payments made to-date you will be responsible for the difference or can continue to make your payments until the end of the plan term.

We will help you figure out which is the most cost-effective. Also, when you purchase a wellness plan you will sign a contract that has all of these details included.

What Is the Next Step If I want to Purchase a Wellness Plan for My Pet?
Call our office at (970) 249-8185 to schedule an appointment for your pet, and let the receptionist know that you are interested in a wellness plan.

Based on the veterinarian’s examination, age, and any other relevant factors, we will recommend the plan that best meets the preventive care needs of your pet. If you decide to purchase the plan that day, any services that were performed which are included in the wellness plan will be covered under the plan.

You will be responsible for paying the membership fee and the first month’s payment at that time. After that, all monthly payments will be electronically debited from the account of your choice (of course, you always have the option to pay in full).

We’ll also discuss your pet’s medical history in detail. We encourage you to share any information you have about your pet—after all, you know your pet best.
