What Is Preventative Pet Care?
As the name suggests, preventative pet care is veterinary treatment specifically designed to prevent a variety of health concerns, illnesses, and infections in dogs, cats, and other household pets. Regular examinations, vaccinations, screenings, and other medical procedures provide your veterinarian with information about your pet’s body, organs, and overall health. By looking at your pet on a regular basis and measuring changes in their health, your veterinarian can detect potential issues earlier and advise you on your treatment options. This allows you to get your pet the care they need sooner, thereby reducing the likelihood of advanced illness and more costly treatment in the future.
What Does Preventative Pet Care Include?
Preventative pet care includes a wide range of veterinary services and procedures designed to assess your dog or cat’s overall health, detect potential health concerns, and diagnosis various illnesses.
Some of these services and procedures include:
- Routine physicals and examinations
- Dental examinations and cleanings
- Diagnostic and therapeutic services
- Vaccinations and boosters
- Intestinal parasite screenings
- Basic deworming treatments
- Cancer screenings
- Diet and nutrition counseling

The Benefits of Preventative Care for Pets
As a pet owner, you want to make sure that your furry friend is in perfect health—but how can you be sure that they’re happy, comfortable, and healthy? Unlike humans, animals can’t tell us when something is wrong, so it’s important to schedule routine preventative care for your pet.
Preventative pet care offers numerous benefits, including that it allows your veterinarian to:
- Assess your pet’s current health and identify any existing areas of concern
- Detect and diagnose health issues in the early stages
- Provide preventative care services, such as vaccines, boosters, and deworming treatments
- Screen your pet for more serious conditions, such as cancer
- Create a baseline of your pet’s health for early detection of potential future health issues
Preventative care is important for both young and old pets, including puppies, kittens, and senior dogs and cats. Illnesses can affect pets of all ages; preventative care in younger pets can include vaccine series to protect against dangerous diseases like distemper and rabies, as well as spaying and neutering and blood screenings.
For older pets, preventative care is crucial for uncovering health concerns early on, which is essential for keeping your senior dog or cat happy, healthy, and comfortable for as long as possible. Senior pet preventative care often involves bi-annual checkups, blood work, urine screenings, dental cleanings, vaccinations, and pest control, among other specialized treatments.

Preventative Pet Care FAQ
What does preventive care include?
Preventive care includes services such as routine checkups, necessary vaccinations, intestinal parasite screens, and recommended blood and urine screens. It may also include dental cleanings and other recommended services. Your pet’s age, species, breed and overall health status will play a role in determining which services are needed in their preventive care protocol.
Do young pets need preventive care?
Absolutely! Illnesses and disease can affect a puppy or kitten’s health, too. Preventive care can include vaccine series to protect against such dangerous diseases as distemper and rabies. Services also often include spaying and neutering your young pet, as well as blood screening to establish baseline information for early detection of potential health threats in the future.
Do senior pets need preventive care?
Absolutely! In fact, regular checkups and screenings are an essential part of making sure problems are caught as early as possible—a crucial part of keeping your senior pet happy and healthy.
What are Petly™ Plans?
Petly™ Plans are affordable monthly payment plans for your pet’s preventive care services. These care plans were created by veterinarians to help make taking care of your pet convenient and affordable. Petly™ Plans allow you and your vet to customize a plan to meet your individual needs and budget, as well as arrange monthly payments for those services instead of a once- or twice-a-year lump sum.
Is there a membership fee?
Yes. You and your veterinarian will determine which care package is right for you and your budget. Once that is determined, you pay a monthly membership fee based on the plan you choose.
Can I cancel or change my plan?
Yes. We understand that circumstances change, and that life is hard to predict. We make it easy to change or cancel your plan at any time. You will be responsible only for the regular price of services you’ve used so far but won’t be penalized or charged fees for cancellation.
Is this an insurance policy?
No. It’s important to note that Petly™ Plans are not the same thing as pet insurance. Petly™ Plans help you manage the cost of necessary regular care for your pet. Pet insurance helps offset costs of catastrophic events, like unexpected accidents or illnesses.
Are Petly™ Plans right for me?
Are you likely to visit your veterinarian one or more times a year? Do you want your pet to be current with vaccinations? Do you see signs of gum disease or other dental issues? Does your pet’s breed or genetic history suggest that you watch out for specific health concerns? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then a Petly™ Plan is likely right for you. Talk to your veterinarian about which Petly™ Plan is best for your pet today!
