Keeping our pets healthy: Greencross Vets Healthy Pets Plus programme

As pet owners, our number-one priority is to ensure the continued health of our beloved companion animals and that means providing them with the best care possible.

Developed by Greencross Vets, Healthy Pets Plus is a proactive healthcare plan that aims to keep your pet in the best of health and enjoying a high quality of life. A Healthy Pets Plus membership encourages pet parents to visit the vet more often, providing fully covered services such as vaccinations, microchipping, dental checks, nutrition counselling, weight checks and an annual health screening test. Healthy Pets Plus also provides a range of discounts, such as $200 off dental procedures, 20 per cent off parasite prevention, 20 per cent off pet food and more.

With 50,000 members and growing, Healthy Pets Plus has provided Australian pet owners with the added peace of mind that their furry friends are in good hands. “I love the Healthy Pets Plus programme as it gives me peace of mind that I can have Lilly seen to whenever I need, without the worry of consult fees,” says a Healthy Pets Plus member. “The generous savings I receive on her pet food and her [vet] visits have made it very worth my while on joining her up.”

But what exactly is Healthy Pets Plus?

Here are a couple of the most commonly asked questions about the programme answered:

Is Healthy Pets Plus insurance?

No, Healthy Pets Plus is all about preventative healthcare — the goal is to prevent your pet from getting sick or catching a disease in its earliest stages. Insurance is aimed at financially protecting your pet in the unfortunate event of an accident or serious illness.

Is it a good idea to have both Healthy Pets Plus and pet insurance?

Greencross Vets is very supportive of as many pets as possible having insurance, as accidents can and do happen. Insurance also provides coverage of major surgeries and many illnesses (generally exempting pre-existing conditions). When combined with Healthy Pets Plus, a pet insurance policy ensures your pet is able to receive the very best in healthcare throughout the year, and is covered in the event of serious illness or injury. Unlike us, pets can’t tell us how they feel, so scheduled and timely check-ups with your vet are a great way to make sure your pet is always in the best possible shape. A Healthy Pets Plus membership is a simple and cost-effective way for you to ensure the proper care of your pet while minimising your yearly veterinary costs. It gives you the peace of mind and confidence that your pet is happy and healthy.
