Have you signed up to our Pet Health Club yet?

The Meridian Pet Health Club started in February 2012 and has become more and more popular as we have grown over the past 5 years.

The benefits of being in our healthcare plan include:

  • Annual vaccinations
  • Flea, Tick and Worm treatment
  • Six month health check
  • Unlimited nail clipping and anal sac expressions with the nurse
  • 50% off microchipping
  • 10% off all our other products and services

For a monthly payment starting at £10.99 for cats and from £11.99 for dogs, this is an excellent way to spread the costs and save money! The Pet Health Club plan is for a minimum of 12 months and renewed annually.  We also offer 50% off your vaccination when you join and then the following year the total cost of annual vaccination is included in the plan.

A huge bonus to the plan, is that you get 10% off everything at Meridian. This could save you a lot of money if your pets is on monthly medication and requires a check-up every 6 months.


As a member of our Pet Health Club we will send you a reminder email every time your pets flea and worm treatment is due for collection. We will send by post, a reminder for your pets’ 6 month health check and annual health check with vaccination.

You will also receive a copy of our quarterly newsletter keeping you up-to-date with the Meridian News and advice. You can ask for more details at reception or browse our Pet Health Club section here, for more information and to download our Pet Health Club application form.
