Pet Insurance

Much like human family members, our pets can unexpectedly fall ill or get injured, and the treatment can be expensive, not to mention stressful. This is where pet insurance may help to alleviate some of the financial burden of vet bills when things don’t go as planned. Pet insurance is generally intended to cover serious illnesses and emergencies, which can result in significant expenses. With many insurers and policies available, it is important that you undertake your own research and read the product disclosure statements carefully so that you understand what is covered and determine which insurer and cover is best suited to you and your pet. Pet insurance works similarly to other types of insurance in that there is usually an excess to pay when you make a claim, waiting periods and annual limits.
