Pet Health Insurance Basics
Pet insurance is like having group health benefits for your pet. It's a unique way to ensure that whenever you need to, you can provide your pet with the very best of care.
Why would you choose to insure your pet? As pet parents, we believe we can protect our pets from harm. Yet, if you think about it, no matter how much love and care we provide, accidents and illness are still beyond our control.
Removes financial concerns in crucial times. Being a pet parent is very rewarding; however, it also comes with responsibility and commitment. Even in tough financial times, investing in pet health insurance is a great way to keep your pet's health and your finances on track. Even more important, pet insurance gives you the confidence of knowing that when you need to, you can provide your pet with the very best veterinary treatment and care - you're prepared for the unexpected.
Access the best care for your pet. Each year, there are tremendous advances in veterinary treatment. However, the cost of providing the very best care can be high. While there's no public health system in Canada for pets, with pet insurance, you always know your pets will have access to excellent medical care if they suddenly become sick, develop a serious medical condition, or suffer any injuries.
Accident Coverage. If your dog gets hit by a car, your cat gets in a scrap with a feline stray or your new puppy falls off the couch and lands the wrong way, pet insurance is there to make sure they're...All taken care of.
Illness Coverage. When you choose illness coverage, if your pet gets an ear infection, your dog suffers from hip dysplasia or your cat develops diabetes, they cover it! No matter what type or level of coverage you choose, your insurance benefits automatically renew annually to make sure that year after year your pet is covered..
Test and Medication Coverage. With accident and illness coverage, if your furry friend has an accident or becomes ill and needs a trip to the veterinarian, it's covered. Chances are they may also need diagnostic testing, medications and maybe even hospitalization. This includes: x-rays, MRIs, CAT scans and even prescriptions.
