We will see your puppy or kitten frequently during his or her first year of life. At your first visit, we’ll assess your pet’s overall health and provide the first set of diagnostic tests, vaccines and deworming to protect him or her against a wide variety of diseases and infections. Over the course of the first months of life, we may see your pet up to six times to provide all of the vaccines and deworming treatments, and spay or neuter surgery if you have a kitten. If your puppy or kitten gets sick, you can always use your free office visits and important discounts in other services.

P. Why does my puppy or kitten need a Mutuavet plan?
It’s important to establish an early habit of preventive care for your puppy or kitten less than six months old. Getting your puppy or kitten on a Mutuavet plan ensures that he or she gets all of the vaccines and boosters that are critical to start on the right paw. Our skilled medical team will do an in-depth evaluation of your puppy or kitten’s overall health, including diagnostic testing to identify disease, parasites and infections. Our Mutuavet Kitten includes a spay or neuter surgery to help your pet live a healthier, happier and longer life
P.When should my puppy or kitten by spayed or neutered?
We recommend that the spay or neuter surgery be done when your puppy or kitten is six months old. Performing this surgery early in your pet’s life helps avoid some of the potential behavior problems typically associated with sexual maturity (urine marking and roaming, for example). Pets at this age also tend to be the appropriate weight, with fewer complicating health problems, which makes the procedure much quicker and less invasive. At this young age, the surgery is often less painful and taxing for your pet and recovery is faster.
Before the surgery, we will run blood tests to ensure that your pet is ready for this procedure. During surgery, we use high quality anesthetic protocols and we will carefully monitor your pet.
P. Why does my young, healthy adult pet need a Mutuavet plan?
All pets, even young, healthy adult pets, need regular, ongoing preventive care to stay healthy. Pets age five to seven years for every human year and many hide problems or pain, so ongoing preventive care is important at any age. Good food and regular exercise are important, but young, adult pets also need regular veterinary care for protection against parasites, infections and diseases. Mutuavet plans include an established schedule of care that’s just right for your dog or cat. Your veterinarian will see your pet four times a year for a comprehensive review of their health. We’ll be able to identify and treat issues early, before they become more serious and harder to address. You know your dog and cat, and we can help you keep them at their peak health.

P. How much does a Mutuavet plan cost?
Prices vary by species, age, and the services that best meet the needs of your dog or cat. Your Mutuavet team will work with you to finalize your plan and costs with the unique needs of your pet in mind.
P. How do I pay for the Mutuavet services?
You can spread the cost of your wellness plan in monthly payments. Dog and cat Mutuavet plans can be done across the 12 months of your annual agreement. Puppy plans are payed in six months and kitten in seven. Your monthly payments can be automatically withdrawn from a savings account so that you don’t have to worry about them once you enroll. We also offer the option of paying in full if you prefer.
P. Can I change the level of my Mutuavet plan during the plan year?
The previous study that makes the Mutuavet veterinary team with the owner greatly reduces the possibility of having to change the level of your wellness plan in the current year, but there are situations where it makes sense to move to a different plan level before then. For example, your pet may need additional care that is available on a higher plan level. In that situation, we can stop the current plan and upgrade your pet to a higher plan. To move to a lower plan level (downgrade) is even more unusual. El hecho de haber disfrutado de servicios que no contempla el plano inferior dificulta el cálculo de las cuotas a pagar y en general se recomienda esperar a que acabe el periodo para bajar de nivel.Demote is even more unusual. To have enjoyed services not included in a lower level difficult to calculate the fees to pay and generally is recommended wait out the period to downgrade.
When you finally make the change of plan it is mandatory to wait the expiration of the previous monthly payment to start paying the new fee. If you have hired extras in an earlier plan it should be investigated there are no incompatibilities. If any, it must be payed the rest of the amount of the incompatible extra before starting to pay the fee of the new plan.
P. I have more than one pet. Do I get a discount on multiple Mutuavet plans?
Yes. The second pet on a Mutuavet plan will enjoy a 10% discount on the monthly fee. The third and following pet will have a 20% discount on the monthly fee.
P. What happens if I want to cancel my plan?
Plan services are provided at significant discounts under an annual agreement. Agreements may be cancelled at any time. However, under the monthly pay option, services may have been performed that have not been fully paid for. In this situation the client is responsible for the remaining payments on the plan or the full retail value for services or discounts used under the plan less payments made (whichever is less). To cancel or set a plan to non-renew it must be notified in writing at least one month before the time of the interruption.
