Why get Pet Insurance?

Just like us, most pets will visit the doctor a few times each year. Pet insurance helps with the unexpected costs you may struggle to pay upfront. While routine visits are more affordable, it’s large surgeries and ongoing treatment costs where pet insurance really shines.

Let’s see how pet insurance can play out:

1. Your dog has been vomiting repeatedly.

2. Your pet insurance policy covers costs for testing to work out the underlying cause (blood tests, x-rays, ultrasound).

3. After the x-ray, the Vet determines that your dog has swallowed your socks!

4. You will be covered for the anaesthetic and surgery costs to remove the socks from his stomach.

5. After surgery your dog needs follow-up appointments (stitch removal, medication). All these costs will be covered less any applicable fees.

It’s easy to see how vet bills and pet care can really blow out following an accident or illness. Pet insurance can save you lots on unexpected costs so consider investing in your pet’s health today.
