And this is just the beginning; we’re constantly on the lookout for new perks to pass along to you as our way of thanking you for your support. Instructions on how to access your current benefits are below.
Please do not share any of this information with non-members as that could jeopardize our ability to continue to offer these or other benefits.
Embrace Pet Health Insurance
To receive your 20% discount on Embrace simply go to embracepetinsurance.com/partners/ghi, follow the instructions to get a quote. And at GHI we understand that you love all of your pets equally (just don’t tell your greyhounds), so we’ve arranged so you can use this discount on any dog or cat you have in the house.
Red Roof Inn
To receive your 20% discount at any Red Roof location, simply call 800.RED.ROOF or visit redroof.com and use the Volume Plan Plus® discount code #540953 in the “Check Room Availability” page. Walk-ins are welcome, but availability cannot be guaranteed.
Restrictions based on availability. Offer cannot be combined with any other discount or offer. Valid only at participating Red Roof locations.
Consultation with Dr. Couto
All consults start with an email from you or your vet to Dr. Couto at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will instruct you from there. Just tell him you’re a GHI member and he’ll give you a 50% discount!
Free carboplatin and aminocaproic acid
To access this benefit, simply email our Executive Director, Brian Collins, at email@example.com. He will verify your membership and get the necessary information about your vet to arrange payment. Since we are not a pharmacy, we cannot supply the medication ourselves but will reimburse your vet/oncologist for the full cost of the drugs if they order them through Amatheon Pharmaceuticals. If they choose to use their own stock or order from a different pharmacy with a higher cost, we will reimburse only for the amount currently being charged at Amatheon.
Accesses to all of Dr. Couto’s papers as well as on-line courses developed in partnership with other vet’s are coming soon! We’re just putting the finishing touches on the eLearning platform and will notify members as soon as it is finished (coming in 2016).
