“What is the POSH Program”
The POSH Program was created to reward our clients for following the senior preventative care program recommended by our veterinarians. There is no fee to join and no effort on your part to receive the benefits of the program. All you have to do is continue with the recommended twice yearly (every 6 months) senior examinations and once yearly comprehensive blood work to stay enrolled.
“What are the benefits?”
By staying enrolled in the POSH program you will receive a percentage off of your POSH pet’s invoice that is equal to their age at the time of the treatment. This discount is applicable to POSH qualifying services (2 yearly senior exams, once yearly comprehensive blood work). So, for example, if your pet is 11 years old you will receive an 11% discount off of your total bill for those services!
“What if I don’t want to continue with the program?”
If you do not wish to stay enrolled in the program you don’t have to do anything. Your discount will continue to be in effect until either the senor exam or senior lab work is passed due, at which time the discount will stop.
“What if I am dropped from the program and want to restart?”
That’s easy, too! As soon as the lab work and exam are current again you will automatically be re-enrolled.
“Why is senior preventative care important?”
A pet’s senior years begin around 7 years of age on average and during these years our animal companions are more susceptible to age-related diseases. Most of the disease that will affect them as they age are slow and progressive, meaning the signs are very mild and hard to detect. By bringing your pet in for twice yearly exams and once yearly lab work you are increasing the likelihood that we will find subtle signs of chronic disease early in the disease process. By finding them early we are in a better position to treat them quickly with goals of slowing down the progression of the disease. This ensures that your pet can have the best quality of life for the longest time possible
