Pet insurance is becoming more and more popular in Australia. It offers you peace of mind as it covers some or all of the treatment costs if your pet is ever involved in an accident or suffers a sudden illness.
With today's high standards of veterinary clinical care, some procedures and emergency and intensive care can be relatively expensive. And unlike the health professions, there is no government subsidy.
It can be heartbreaking to have to choose between the health of your pet and your financial constraints, so for peace of mind we strongly recommend that your pet is insured.
What does pet insurance cover?
Individual packages vary in the type of treatment covered. However, they usually include most accidents and unexpected illnesses.
There are several companies offering pet insurance. You need to consider the differences between policies, in particular the claim excess amount, the proportion of treatment costs covered, the annual claim limit, age restrictions, pre-existing illness exclusions and policy costs.
We strongly recommend pet insurance, and encourage you to discuss it with us at your next visit.
