A Preventative Health Care Plan for cats, dogs and rabbits

We’d do anything for our pets, wouldn’t we?

Whether it’s the fun of watching a young pup playfully exploring the world around them or the comfort of an old friend constantly by your side or asleep on your lap – the companionship our pets give us is priceless.

But because your faithful friend can’t tell you when they’re feeling unwell – and sometimes you can’t see when there’s anything wrong either – you want reassurance…

✔︎ Reassurance that, as a responsible pet owner, you’re making the right choices to give you and your pet a long and happy life together,

✔︎ Reassurance reassurance that regular check-ups and early detection of any potential problems give the best chance of a positive outcome,

✔︎ Reassurance that if something doesn’t seem quite right (maybe your pet seems a little under the weather?) that you can see a vet any time, just to be sure that it’s nothing more serious.

We’re pet owners too – so we understand how this feels.

That’s why, when we re-designed our healthcare plan, we decided that complete peace-of-mind was the most important priority.

For that reason, as well as receiving a wide range of benefits, regular checks and protection against parasites when you join the Hythe Healthcare Plan – you’ll also benefit from unlimited consultations* with a vet or a veterinary nurse. You can see one of our experts, as often as you need throughout the year, at no extra charge.

What better way to give your pet the very best opportunity of a long and happy life?

We choose Hythe Healthcare Plan membership for our own pets. We hope you will too…
Thank you.

The difference between Pet Health Club membership and pet insurance, and why you need both.

Hythe Healthcare Plan focuses on preventative healthcare and has been carefully designed to help your pet have a healthy, happy life.

Pet insurance, on the other hand, provides financial cover for unforeseen illness and accidents – although it is important to note that the level of cover provided by different insurers / policies can vary enormously.

Preventative healthcare includes vaccinations, parasite prevention, regular health checks and other services intended to prevent illness or to detect potential issues before your pet suffers any discomfort.
Pet insurance covers unexpected events, similar to a car insurance policy.

Unlike car insurance, however, 90% of pet insurance claims are for illness as opposed to accident†. Data also shows you are more likely to claim on your pet insurance than your car or household insurance††.

As a Hythe Healthcare Plan member, your pet will be regularly examined by one of our vets or veterinary nurses.

This maximises the opportunities for early diagnosis and treatment of conditions which might affect your pet’s health and gives the best chance of a positive outcome.

This is why we strongly recommend that responsible pet owners combine the Health Care Plan membership with a pet insurance policy.
