They do not want to part with a cent they don't have to, i.e. they don't give you a discount without pressuring you to buy more of other things. One vet looked at a small growth on my dog's abdomen, and told us it was nothing to worry about. It grew so big we had to bring her back in and get surgery. It cost us about $300 to have it removed with anesthesia. We used a different method, so it only cost $200. If the initial examining vet had handled this correctly, it wouldn't have cost this much to have a huge growth removed, undoubtedly saving us money, and the dog discomfort and stress. This wellness plan is only good for dental cleaning as far as I'm concerned. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
