Bigger! Fluffier! Now with felines!

The Pet HealthZone® expansion includes cat breeds, additional dog breeds and more fun for all.

By now, we hope you’ve had a chance to visit the Nationwide® Pet HealthZone®, a free online destination for pet parents to discover new ways to nurture their pet’s needs like never before. Maybe you’ve looked up your own dog breed, or discovered a health concern that you want to discuss with your pet’s veterinary healthcare team.

Now, there’s a new reason to return to the Pet HealthZone – well, more than one, in fact! (Try over 100!)

When it originally launched in July 2023, the Pet HealthZone included info on the 55 most commonly insured dog breeds, including lovable favorites like Labrador Retrievers and French Bulldogs. Now, the Pet HealthZone has expanded to encompass over 100 dog breeds, including some of the most pup-ular crossbreds like Morkies, Puggles, and Bichpoos. 

Additionally, we are excited that the expansion includes the introduction of nearly a dozen pure and mixed feline breeds, from Domestic Shorthairs to Sphynx, making the platform an essential resource for cat parents. More than 97% of Nationwide-insured dogs and 90% of cats are now represented by the breeds included in the Pet HealthZone. 

Key highlights of the Nationwide Pet HealthZone expansion include: 

  1. Over 100 dog breeds: The site now includes a diverse range of over 100 dog breeds, offering in-depth information on each breed's characteristics, high-risk conditions to watch for, preventive tips, and more. This expansion ensures that pet owners can access a wealth of knowledge to help them care for their canine companions more effectively.
  2. Feline representation: Recognizing that cats hold a special place in homes across the nation, the Nationwide Pet HealthZone has introduced information on nearly a dozen pure and mixed feline breeds. Especially since a large percentage of cats do not receive routine veterinary care (for any number of reasons), this addition represents a major step forward in supporting the needs of cat parents and promoting feline health and well-being.
  3. Expanded features: In addition to breed-specific information, the platform now offers interactive features to engage and delight users. Features such as maps illustrating breed origins and a "One in a Million" page that reveals the uniqueness of each pet based on breed, age, and even name have been introduced, adding a fun and personalized touch to the user experience.
How the Pet HealthZone® can help your family

Nationwide's Pet HealthZone is not just a resource for current pet owners; it also serves as an invaluable guide for those considering adding a furry friend to their family. Whether you're thinking about welcoming a new canine or feline companion, this digital platform offers essential insights to make informed decisions.

Making informed choices for new additions

When adding to your family, use the Pet HealthZone to research breeds you might be considering. Delve into the platform to not only explore the unique "paw-sonality" of each breed but also to gain insights into potential health concerns specific to that breed. This information ensures that your family finds a perfect match, aligning with both your lifestyle and the well-being of your future pet.

Nurturing through milestones

As your pet celebrates milestone birthdays, the Pet HealthZone becomes your trusted companion. Learn about the life stages of your pet's breed and anticipate potential health conditions that may arise. Armed with this knowledge, engage in proactive conversations with your veterinarian about preventive measures and vigilant monitoring to ensure a long, happy life for your beloved companion.

Empowering decisions in health challenges

In times of health challenges, the Pet HealthZone provides a reliable source of information (after all, it’s built using claims data from millions of pets!). If your pet receives a diagnosis, utilize the platform to look up the specific condition. Gain insights into what might happen next, understand the potential treatment options, and get a sense of the associated costs. This empowers pet parents to make informed decisions about their pet's healthcare, fostering a strong partnership between owners and veterinary teams.

With Nationwide's Pet HealthZone, the journey of pet ownership is not only enriched with valuable information but also guided by a commitment to proactive, informed, and compassionate care for our beloved companions. Access this comprehensive resource for free by visiting ThePetHealthZone.com and embark on a journey of well-informed and joyful pet ownership.
