Vital Pet Care Plans


Wellness Plans

KVH and Ballam Park Vet Clinic are proud to offer wellness plans for all cats and dogs. Our animal health care plans are designed to make preventative health care more affordable. We do this by offering clients a monthly subscription program. This program covers a range of ongoing pet health care services. For help towards their vet bills, clients who purchase wellness plans are entitled to:

  • Free unlimited consultations
  • Free annual wellness exam
  • Free rechecks
  • Free vaccinations
  • Free annual wellness blood tests
  • Free microchipping
  • 10% discounts on pet food, medication, and laboratory and professional services


Vital Pet Care Plans

Vital Pet Care is an affordable way to space out your pet health care costs. A monthly subscription service means that your pet is covered when they need a vaccination, a consultation, and more. At Karingal Veterinary Hospital and Ballam Park Vet Clinic, your wellness plan also includes discounts on a range of products and services, including medications, nutrition (such as food and chews) and laboratory fees.


A wellness plan is not pet insurance. Rather, it is a subscription program that covers ongoing pet health costs. It can also help towards vet bills by providing discounted services. Clients who purchase pet care plans from Karingal Vet Hospital or Ballam Park Vet Clinic still will benefit from choosing pet insurance that suits their needs.  

Pet Care Plans: Health Checks

For the development and wellbeing of your pet, we recommend 6 monthly check-ups.

Regular health checks are important for any pet and ought to be included in any pet health plan.  Having regular health checks means we are diagnose and start treatment on illnesses sooner. For this reason, our Vital Pet Care plans include unlimited consultations and rechecks for all cats and dogs.

Pet Care Plans: Vaccinations

Vaccinations are vital for all pets, and, like regular health checks, must be a part of any total wellness plan. All of our wellness plans offer free vaccinations. Vaccinations help your pet’s immune system learn how to fight against infection and disease. Vaccines lessen the severity of serious, debilitating, and life-threatening diseases, and some can prevent infections altogether. It is important to make sure you stay up to date with your pet’s vaccinations. For complete care, including free annual vaccinations, sign up to one of our wellness plans today.

Dog Plans

We offer three different levels of wellness plans for adult dogs, and one comprehensive plan for puppies. All plans include free vaccinations and wellness checks. The most comprehensive of these packages includes free enrolment in the Parasite Prevention Program. For a complete break-down of our dog wellness plans, view the table below.

Wellness Care FAQ

What is Vital Pet Care?

Vital Pet Care is an affordable way to organise and pay for your pet’s healthcare.

Is a wellness plan the same as pet insurance?

No, pet insurance can help with vet bills associated with accidents or sudden illness. While our wellness plans provide discounts on fees and medication, the main focus is on creating a more affordable approach to ongoing healthcare.

What if my pet has an existing medical condition?

Existing medical conditions will not affect your animal health care plan. Owners of pets with pre-existing will still receive discounts on any fees related to those conditions, including for medications, check-ups and nutrition.

Can I join for less than 12 months?

Our pet health plans are designed to offer complete care for the life of your pet.

Is there a waiting period?

No. Once you have paid the initial joining fee, you are eligible to receive the benefits of your plan.

Can I transfer membership to another pet?

No. Vital Pet Care plans are non-transferable.

What if I need to cancel my membership?

You can cancel your membership at any time, but you will be required to reimburse Vital Pet Care any discounts received, less the membership fees paid.

How do I pay for Vital Pet Care?

Clients may choose to pay the annual costs up front or arrange for monthly direct debit.

What if I need to pause my membership for a month?

If you are unable to pay one month, your plan will be suspended and no discounts will be available.

Clients will be reminded of vaccination and check up schedules via SMS or email.
