For many responsible pet owners, insurance is one of the many ways of caring for their pet, like feeding, grooming and exercise. Animals are just as susceptible to illness and injuries as their owners and experience shows that 1 in 3 pet owners have to make an unexpected trip to the vet. With such a high proportion of the nation’s pets requiring veterinary attention, it is important to consider the benefits that pet insurance can provide.
Veterinary medicine and surgery has advanced significantly in recent years. This means that our pets can have access to a huge range of diagnostics, treatment options and specialists, if required. These advances in technology (equipment, procedures, drugs, etc) do come at a price. Most pet owners want the best for their four-legged family member and it can be devastating when treatment is limited, or even made impossible, by lack of finances. A lifetime policy affords peace of mind that will mean your pet can receive the best medical attention when it needs it.
There are many unforeseen risks associated with owning a cat, dog or rabbit. In the event that your pet is lost or stolen you may want to advertise for its safe return and offer a reward to the individual who found it. Pet insurance can help cover the cost of boarding kennel/cattery fees if you are hospitalised or even help with legal costs if your dog causes an accident resulting in 3rd party damage or injury.
Petplan can provide cover for all these things and more, giving you the much needed peace of mind when it comes to your pet´s well-being.
