Much like your own health needs, annual exams for your pet are a yearly event that we may find tedious, but they are essential.  These exams help maintain the best quality of life, and when it comes to catching diseases early then annual exams become the difference between success in treating them or not.  An annual exam is more than just vaccinations, your veterinarian will discuss the history of the pet, do a physical exam.  If there is a diagnosis or a disease then treatment options can be discussed, and other diagnostic tools may be recommended.


In the History portion of the annual exam, your veterinarian will likely ask about housing, diet, medications, vaccine history, exercise, and daily routine.  This includes questions about energy level, appetite and thirst.  As the pet owner, your job is to verbalize what your pet cannot, since you know them best.  Most pets handle pain and disease very well and it is only subtle behavior observations that give veterinarians the information they need to look further into any issues you may be concerned about.  In the physical examination your pet will be evaluated from head to toe, but again if you have noticed anything it is worth pointing out.

Most pet insurance plans that we recommend here at The Insured Pet include coverage for an annual exam for these reasons and many more.  To use your pet insurance for your pet’s annual pet exam, simply visit the veterinarian then submit a claim for reimbursement.  There are options for full reimbursement for a pet exam.  If the pet exam includes boosters for vaccinations, those are often covered as well.

At the end of the day, The Insured Pet is here to help you.  We can answer questions, help you understand what is best for your situation, and give you the peace of mind that you are looking for when it comes to the health and safety of your beloved pet.  Feel free to browse our website for more information at Check out the Best Pet Insurance that will suit you and your Pet at
