Our team at Riverstone Animal Hospital are very excited about our Pet Wellness Plans! We have listened to your feedback and adjusted our plans to give you more options and value.
Our Wellness Plans are a packaged set of wellness services provided to your pet over the course of a year. The services included vary based on your preference and your pet's needs. The benefit to you is that you have the option of equal monthly payments to help you plan and budget, as well as unlimited free office visits for your pet over the course of the year. As an additional benefit you also receive a discount off non-included medical services such as medications, lab work, or treatment in case of illness.
With plans as low as $29.00 a month and including unlimited office visits, we truly hope to help pet owners access the essential health care their furry loved ones need.

Frequently Answered Questions about our Wellness Plans:
What is a Wellness Plan and is it pet insurance?
A Wellness Plan is a package of yearly well care services for your dog or cat that offers you convenient monthly payments along with several other benefits. These include free office visits (sick or well) and a discount off non-wellness medical services such as medications, x-rays, etc.
Unlike pet health insurance, which primarily covers illness or emergencies, our plans are designed all around wellness care. Together with a healthy diet, preventive healthcare is the most important thing you can do for your pet to help ensure longevity and quality of life.
Many pet owners choose to have a wellness plan for their well care and still carry pet health insurance to help cover larger illness expenses. While we do not provide actual pet health insurance, we can help you find out more about it if you are interested.
Why should my pet be on a plan?
It has been proven over and over that solid preventative care can and will extend the lives of people and pets. Since pets age 7-10 years for every one year of ours, providing a regular well care plan for them is essential. The Wellness Plans help make optimal wellness care possible for just about every pet owner and will help keep your four-legged family members part of your family for as long as possible.
Are any services not included in the plans?
Each plan includes a specific set of wellness services at the monthly fee listed for each plan. Most other medical services that are not part of the plan are eligible for a discount of 5% off regular fees. These include sick pet medical care, surgery, lab work, and prescription medication. Not eligible for this discount are therapeutic diets, boarding, and grooming services.
Is there a discount for multiple pets?
Yes. If you have two or more pets on a Wellness Plan, you receive half off the $49 enrollment fee.
Is it possible to cancel my plan?
All of our plans are annual agreements, which allow for you to pay for your services interest free over a 12-month period. You may cancel at the time of annual renewal by calling us at least 7 days prior to the renewal date. Canceling prior to the annual renewal is only possible in the case of an out-of-county move or should a pet pass away. In this case you have two options: You can either pay the actual retail value of your plan services that you have used up to the cancellation date, or you can chose to pay the remainder of your plan’s monthly payments, whichever is less.
What is the difference between the plans and which is best for my pet?
The services included in each plan are outlined in the brochures, which you can download and review. Which package you choose depends a lot on your personal preferences and budget, as well as the age, breed, and lifestyle of your pet. For example, a small breed dog may benefit from the dentistry option as small dogs are more prone to periodontal disease. For advice on which plan may be best for your pet please feel free to contact our office anytime and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have.
