To celebrate October as Pet Wellness Care Month, we put together a fun quiz about wellness care earlier. Take the rest of the quiz now and see how you do:

4. What should you ask your veterinarian about at a wellness visit?
a) Proper diet and weight
b) Any concerns about your pet
c) Both a and b
d) Nothing – your veterinarian is busy with the exam

c) A wellness visit is a great time to ask questions, especially since your veterinarian can check out problems firsthand. Jot questions down before the visit, so you don’t forget them.

5. Are wellness care visits painful?
a) Yes
b) Sometimes
c) No

c) Your pet may not like going to the veterinarian or being examined, but these check-ups shouldn’t be painful other than a quick vaccination prick or blood draw.

6. Spaying or neutering is part of good wellness care.
a) True
b) False

a) Spaying or neutering your pet doesn’t only help with overpopulation, it can also improve the health of your pet!

Our friends at the ASPCA recommend at least one wellness visit a year for pets. Plus, ASPCA Pet Health Insurance has two options that can help you afford yearly check-ups as well as vaccines, spaying or neutering, and more.

A Pet Parent Asks:
Are multiple injuries from a single event considered one incident? For example, a dog suffers an accident that causes a broken bone, cuts needing stitches and surgery. Would I be reimbursed up to one incident limit for all these injuries? Or would each injury have its own incident limit?

ASPCA Pet Health Insurance Answers:
Good question!

Multiple injuries that are related to one incident share one incident limit.

For this particular scenario, you would be reimbursed up to the covered amounts on all three components of this one accident—the broken bone, cuts needing stitches and surgery—up to your maximum incident benefit.
