There are many benefits of pet insurance. For many pet owners, accidents, pet fights, illnesses and other medical emergencies are an all too common occurrence. These situations can lead to some very expensive vet bills and really take their toll on a pet owner’s bank account.

Unfortunately, most of us never consider pet insurance until we’re at the vet and receiving a large bill.  And while we don’t begrudge the amount spent to keep our beloved pet safe and well, many of us will wonder why we didn’t look into pet insurance to cover the bill.

Pet insurance provides owners with much needed peace of mind for their pet’s well being – as well as for their own wallets. If you’re considering pet insurance, it’s helpful to look at the numerous benefits of pet insurance for both you and your pet.

How Does Pet Insurance Work?

With pet insurance you’ll always know that the quality of healthcare your pet receives isn’t limited by finances.

Most Australian pet health insurance policies work by reimbursing you for the cost of your pet’s veterinary care. Basically, you’ll pay the initial vet bill, then send a duplicate, itemised receipt to your pet’s insurance company with a completed claim form. Once your claim has been processed you’ll receive reimbursement for your payment.

The Benefits of Pet Insurance

For You:

Becoming a pet owner is a big decision. As a pet owner you become responsible for the well being of your companion for life. Therefore, you (and only you!) are responsible for paying the full costs of your pet’s veterinary care.

You don’t want to be that person who sacrifices their pet’s health or wellbeing because of money problems, especially in a critical life-threatening situation. Know that you’re looking after your cat or dog to the highest standard by protecting them will pet insurance.

For Your Pet:

Pet insurance offers your pet coverage for illness and injuries, as well as specialised treatment for chronic conditions.

As well as this, you’ll ensure that your pet receives the benefits of a routine wellness program. Focused on preventative care, these programs can reduce the potential risk of illness in the first place.
