What is pet insurance?
A monthly agreement between an insurer and yourself, as a pet-owner, on cover of the risk of major vet bills due to significant unforeseen accidents & illnesses – costs that you might otherwise not be able to afford.
It’s not medical aid, although pet insurance can free you from significant financial worries, and allow you to choose the best available vet care for your family in your unfortunate time of need.
Why do I need pet insurance?
The best medical care for our pets should be an automatic “yes,” without hesitation. Did you know:
- 1 in 3 pets need emergency vet treatment each year
- More vet specialists and advanced treatments are available today
- Advanced pet medical care often costs thousands of rands
- Our plans average less than R6 per day
