A wellness plan is an annual package of preventive healthcare services designed to keep your pet happy and healthy. We personalize our plans to address every life stage by including the appropriate schedule of exams, diagnostics, and vaccinations.

All of the Ghent Vet plans have monthly payment options that allow for predictable wellness expenses.

Peace of Mind

You can feel confident that your trusted companion is receiving optimal care, and at the same time, enjoy the certainty of being able to budget for that care. Our plans provide predictable automated monthly payments and easy-to-use online account features.

Wellness Plans vs. Insurance

Our wellness plans ensure that pets receive all of the preventive care services they need to stay healthy. By design, our plans proactively catch or prevent diseases.

In contrast, pet insurance is a policy that helps when the unexpected happens. Insurance can reimburse you for services like emergency surgery, sparing you from making tough decisions about your pet’s health and longevity.

Wellness plans and pet insurance go hand in hand. Choosing both means saying “yes” to the best healthcare for your pet.


Regular, frequent head-to-tail veterinary examinations can find health issues and abnormalities early on when they’re more treatable and less costly. We recommend the right schedule of visits based on your pet’s breed, health status, and lifestyle.


Pets, like people, need vaccinations against dangerous viral and bacterial infections. Purchasing a wellness plan helps ensure that your pet receives regular vaccinations to protect against these serious, and sometimes deadly, diseases.


Whether it is a fecal exam to check for parasites, or a blood profile to make sure the kidneys, liver, and other organs are working properly, routine tests are necessary to maintain your pet’s optimal wellness year after year. As your pet ages, your veterinarian may recommend more preventive diagnostics. Our wellness plans are customized to reflect the type and quantity of diagnostics we recommend based on your pet’s age.

Nutrition and Exercise

Diet and exercise are just as important for pets as they are for people. We partner with you, so your pet receives high-quality nutrition and maintains a healthy weight for a lifetime. As part of your pet’s regular preventive care exam, we monitor their weight to catch any extra pounds early on and keep your pet in tip-top shape.


Behavioral issues can ruin the relationship pets have with their human family. You can rely on us to get to the bottom of the problem and provide timely positive intervention before the behavioral challenges become unmanageable. From house and litter box training to age-related behavioral changes, we pinpoint the source of the issue, then provide targeted advice and treatment, so you and your pet remain the best of friends.

Oral Health

Oral health isn’t just about stinky breath. Oral health problems can be excruciating for your pet. Untreated dental disease can lead to serious illnesses, such as infection and heart disease. Regular dental assessments and cleanings are essential to your pet’s lasting good health. That’s why we’ve made dental services more accessible by including them in our wellness plan program.
