Puppies and kittens inherit a natural immunity from their mother that protects them from birth until about 6 weeks of age. After 6 weeks, your pet depends on you
to continue that protection until their own immune system is fully developed. A Preventive Care Plan is designed to continue that protection by providing all services
necessary to carry your young pet through the important first year of life. Preventive, routine health care is the key to a longer, happier life for your young pet. The puppy and kitten plans offered by Welland Animal Hospital include all necessary examinations, vaccines and recommended lab work (see service guide) necessary in the first year of life. If your pet has not been spayed or neutered, there is a plan that includes the pre-surgical blood work, hospitalization for the day, surgical procedure, and a re-check examination. For maximum protection, we strongly recommend you enroll your pet in a PetlyPlan between 8 weeks and 5 months of age.


Each Preventive Care Plan provides veterinary services for one year and can be upgraded to a different plan when the need arises. Some benefits universal to all Preventive Care Plans are:

  •  All necessary vaccinations and recommended diagnostic tests (see service guide)
  • 12 affordable monthly payments
  •  Exam copay on scheduled examinations
  • Additional discounts on eligible items that are not included in the plan

The cost for each Preventive Care Plan is divided into 12 equal monthly payments. Welland Animal Hospital wants to be the primary caregiver for your special friend throughout every stage of life and we will strive  make that both convenient and affordable for you.
