Banfield-Pet-hospitalBeing a pet owner can be one of the most rewarding experiences in life. No matter what kind of day you are in or what your mood may be, you can always count on your dog or even cat to brighten up your day. My dog is such a good little fur baby and loves her family so much with tons of unconditional love. That’s why the least I do for my little pooch is to make sure she is in tip top shape, and up to date on all her physicals, and immunizations.

Banfield-PetWhen the opportunity to try out a new veterinarian and Optimum Wellness Package at Banfield Pet Hospital arose, I was excited because keeping dogs healthy is not cheap! Banfield Pet Hospital’s Optimum Wellness Plan would provide everything my dog needed (except dental services) to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Plus, they are mostly located at Petsmart stores across the nation.This makes visits convenient because you can get shop for all your pet’s needs while you wait!

A little about Banfield Pet Hospital:

Banfield believes in preventive veterinary care as the best way to improve the quality and longevity of a pet’s life by reducing the risk of developing serious, costly and sometimes fatal diseases, such as heartworm disease.Banfield’s Optimum Wellness Plans can be customizable based on the needs of the individual pet, and combine physical exams, routinely recommended vaccinations and screenings, unlimited free office visits, service discounts and more into one affordable veterinary care package.


Our visit: 

We visited the Banfield Pet Hospital in Warwick, RI and I have to say it was a great experience. The facility was very bright, cheery and clean. The staff were so inviting, and totally animal lovers. You could see the compassion, and love in all of their actions. I think my dog got more kisses and hugs there in 2 hours than all week combined!

banfield-waiting-areaMy little dog was weighed, checked in and then we sat down to wait for an open room. There were a bunch of pets both large and small there too so the wait was a little longer than normal. Once we got inside, our nurse was amazing! She took our dog’s vitals, administered her immunizations, and checked her stool while we waited.

She did have some plaque on her chompers so a dental cleaning was suggested.  Our particular Optimum Wellness Plan did not include this service, but it was something we could easily add on.

In three weeks, our dog goes back for her first dose of ProHeart® 6 heartworm preventive. This heartworm medicine was so popular that they ran out! That is ok though because she also needs the second dose to another immunization she was unable to get as well. Since the facility was the best we’ve ever gone to, I’ll take a second visit! Plus I get will get to check out all the super cool Halloween pet products at Petsmart=win/win! 

banfield-pet-hospital-exam-roomIf you are not familiar with Banfield Pet Hospital’s ProHeart® heart worm preventative here is more info:

  • ProHeart® 6 is an injectable heartworm preventive that can be prescribed to healthy dogs over the age of 6 months, which delivers six months of protection in a single dose—offering both convenience and peace of mind to pet owners.
  • ProHeart® 6 can protect dogs from dangerous heartworm disease by preventing immature worms from maturing into adults that cause damage in the pet’s heart.
  • Before a pet can start on heartworm preventive, he/she needs to be tested to make sure they are free of adult heartworms —this is done through a quick, simple blood test at your veterinarian’s office.

    We have a Banfield in our major pet store and I just love how colorful the inside is, and how friendly the staff it. It is also convenient to be able to address a pets immediate needs, medication/dietary on spot.

  2. Shauna says

    I love Banfield, though haven’t been in years. We used to take our cats all the time for preventative. Now that we have a dog, I need to get on schedule for wellness checks…

    This is a great plan. Veterinary care can get expensive. If your dog has any amount of gum disease at all you should totally get his teeth cleaned. Bacteria from a bad mouth can enter the blood stream through inflamed gums and affect the heart, kidneys, and liver.

  4. says

    Six months of heartworm prevention with no annoying topical treatments sounds awesome. I’m going to see if I can find a Banfield in my area.

  5. says

    Sounds like you had a wonderful experience. I am a firm believer in preventative treatment as well and I am glad to see that the staff was sweet to your fur baby.

  6. says

    I love how clean it looks. I bet you feel so much more at ease knowing they are taking good care of your furbaby. I have 2 dogs – I know it would make me feel that much better.

  7. Ann Bacciaglia says

    <My dog had major surgery at an animal hospital a couple years ago. It is so important that it is a good hospital that is clean and that you trust.

  8. Amy Orvin says

    It can make my life easier because it’s so close to my home now. A Petsmart just opened and there is a Banefield there. I’d love to win!

  9. T Michelle Trump says

    This insurance plan would give me peace of mind that I would have an affordable way to take care of both our dog and cat’s health.

  10. Samii Meyer says

    I like that it is not too far away – and the one by me is connected to a Petsmart so I can also get some pet products while I am there.
