Vouchers can be used for most veterinary care goods and services. Be aware that $250 should cover veterinary care needs for one healthy pet needing an annual wellness visit that requires a physical exam, some disease tests (e.g. heartworm test for dogs, FIV/FeLV test for cats, and fecal exams), and core vaccinations (annual shots for adult dogs and cats). Keep in mind that if you have a sick pet, costs for tests and treatments may be higher than $250.

Vouchers may NOT be used for:

  1. routine spay and neuter to reduce unwanted pregnancies
  2. tail docking and ear cropping to meet breed standards
  3. goods and services that aren't medically or surgically necessary for your pet's health (or for your health benefit), such as microchipping, collars, leashes, toys, etc.
