Free Vaccines

Beagle’s Bay Animal Hospital

Free Vaccines for Life – 

At Beagle’s Bay Animal Hospital, we believe it’s extremely important for pets to receive a thorough physical examination by their veterinarian at least once a year. We would much rather work with you to keep your pet healthy than treat them for preventable illnesses in the future. That’s why we’re now offering a Free Vaccines for Life program. Simply pay a low, one-time enrollment fee and when your pet comes in for their wellness visit every year, all recommended vaccines are given at no charge, every year for the life of your pet. It’s part of our commitment to make health care easier, better and more affordable for our clients. The program is open to pets of all ages, including puppies and kittens. Please call us at 618-524-1817 with any questions, and see our FAQs below.

FAQs

What is the enrollment fee? The one-time enrollment fee is $79 per pet. Though this program only requires a wellness exam once a year, we do recommend that puppies and kittens be examined every 4 weeks from two to four months of age.

Do I pay every year? Is there anything else I have to pay for? There is no annual or recurring membership fee. Your membership in the program automatically renews when you bring your pet in for their annual wellness exam. You only pay for the examination fee each year. Please note that any recommended annual lab tests (fecal checks, heartworm testing, senior blood panels, etc.) will still be normal price. These are, as always, optional services you can choose to do or decline each year.

What vaccinations are included in this program? The short answer is, whatever your pet needs! Not all pets need every vaccine every year. The latest research proves that most pets have been over-vaccinated in the past, largely due to outdated knowledge and sometimes even to increase profits. Dr. Gaia follows the latest vaccination guidelines from the American Animal Hospital Association and the American Association of Feline Practitioners to keep your pet healthy. Dogs may receive any or all of the following, based on their risk factors, age and lifestyle: Rabies, distemper, parvo, adenovirus, parainfluenza, leptospirosis, and bordetella (kennel cough). Cats may receive any or all of the following, based on their risk factors, age and whether they go outdoors: rabies, feline upper respiratory and distemper viruses, feline leukemia.

Can I enroll more than one pet? Absolutely! There is no limit to the number of pets you can enroll. Simply pay the one-time enrollment fee for each pet.

Can I ever be dropped from the program? Once your pet is enrolled and comes in once a year for a wellness exam, he or she will receive free vaccines for life. If your pet does not come in for an annual exam within one month of the annual due date, then they will no longer be eligible for free vaccines through this program. We will send out reminders when your annual exam is due, and follow up with a phone call before your pet is overdue. Beagle’s Bay reserves the right to end new enrollments at any time, but if your pet is already enrolled, they will be enrolled for life.

Can I transfer the membership to another pet in the family? No, each pet must have his or her own membership. Plans are not transferable. In addition, if your pet is re-homed, membership will not transfer to the new owner.

Is the enrollment fee refundable? The enrollment fee is not refundable under any circumstances (moving, death of pet, etc.)

Is this plan honored at other veterinary clinics? No. Free Vaccines for Life is proudly and exclusively offered by Beagle’s Bay Animal Hospital.

Can I sign up now even though my pet isn’t due for vaccinations for several months? You may enroll at any time. Just pay the enrollment fee now, and the exam fee when your pet comes in for his or her wellness visit. The plan will go into effect on that date (giving you a full year between wellness visits), but your membership will be effective immediately.
