MWI partners with Premier Pet Care Plan, Scratchpay
The arrangement is intended to “ease the financial burden of both routine and emergency pet care,” an executive says.
MWI Animal Health, a distributor of products and services to veterinary practices nationwide, has added two financial services providers to its catalog.
The company announced partnerships with:
- Premier Pet Care Plan, which builds, promotes and administers preventive care plans for pets through participating veterinary clinics.
- Scratchpay, which lends money, often at 0% interest, to pet owners doing business at partner hospitals.
The new offerings are designed to “increase access to affordable veterinary care as practices and their clients grapple with the financial impacts of the novel coronavirus.”
“We know that COVID-19 has led to uncertainty and unemployment for millions of people who are now having to make difficult decisions,” said Brian Topper, vice president of product strategy at MWI. “Whether or not to get necessary care for their pets should not be one of them. These new partnerships will ease the financial burden of both routine and emergency pet care, while also helping practices achieve more consistent revenue, long-term client engagement, and most importantly, better outcome for their patients.”
