It’s a pet owner’s worst nightmare when your best friend has suddenly taken ill, or been involved in an accident and you are facing a bill you hadn’t budgeted for. Fortunately more pet owners are realising the advantages of pet insurance.
Why pet health insurance?
Our pets give us unconditional love and loyalty and we want to give them the proper care they deserve. Unexpected illnesses or accidents can involve a financial burden. Pet health insurance can help contribute to unexpected and routine veterinary expenses by paying up to 80% of costs and sometimes more.
Which insurance company offers the best policy?
There are many companies that offer pet insurance, so you do need to do some research before choosing the cover that’s best for you and your pet.
Most companies will offer a range of policies including ‘accident only’ and ‘accident and illness’. A few companies also offer some cover for routine items like vaccinations and prescription food.
Vetwest is not associated with any pet insurance provider, nor can we provide advice on the best policy for your pet. Here are some of the insurance providers that we have been recommended by our team members and clients.
