Pet insurance is a rapidly growing industry in Australia, as more people are realising the benefits of health cover for their pets. We thoroughly recommend it to our clients. 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 Medicare for pets, which is often why treatment costs seem expensive for pets. Did you know that 24 hr emergency care for animals can cost over $1000 per day? The Gold Coast area has a large number of tick and snake bite cases each year, which demand expensive anti-serum and a high level of intensive nursing care and which can result in bills of thousands of dollars. It is a heartbreaking situation to have to choose between the health of your pet and financial constraints, so for peace of mind we strongly recommend that your pet is insured.
There are several companies that offer pet insurance and we can help you find one that best suits your needs and your pet.
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.
Tallebudgera Veterinary Clinic highly recommends pet insurance and encourages you to discuss it with us at your next visit or call us to discuss various insurance options which may best suit your needs.
