Pet Insurance

Pet insurance is becoming more and more popular in New Zealand. It offers you peace of mind as it covers some or all of the treatment costs if your pet was ever involved in an accident or suffers a sudden illness. There is no equivalent of ACC for pets, thus often treatment costs exceed what an equivalent problem would cost for a human patient.

Some surgeries such as repair of fractured bones or exploratory surgery can also add up to thousands of dollars and that does not even include the recovery and aftercare treatment. It is a heartbreaking situation to have to choose between the health of your pet and financial constraints, so for peace of mind we recommend pet insurance.

There are several companies that offer pet insurance and we recommend you spend time researching each one to find the policy that best suits your needs.

 

What does pet insurance cover?

Individual packages vary in the type of treatment covered. However, they usually include most accidents and unexpected illnesses.

You need to consider the differences between policies, in particular the claim excess amount, proportion of treatment costs covered, annual claim limit, age restrictions, pre-existing illness exclusions and policy costs.

We recommend pet insurance and have a number of pet insurance brochures at the clinic which you are welcome to take home.
