To help you fully understand the ins and outs of pet insurance for your cats, dogs, rabbits, horses and other pets, we’ve listed the top frequently asked questions about pet insurance below…
Is pet insurance worth it?
In 2017, Kiwis spent more than $1.8 billion dollars on their animal companions - and yet, people are still skeptical about investing in pet insurance!
With vet treatment getting more and more expensive, the small cost of pet insurance is worth it to know your pet is taken care of if the worst was to happen.
What pets can be insured?
The type of pets that can be insured are dogs and cats; however, there are a few New Zealand pet insurance companies that specialize in other types of pets, such as horses and rabbits.
Why should I get pet insurance?
Can you put a price on the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’ll never have to choose between financial security and your pet? If the answer is no, you have the answer as to why you should get pet insurance!
How does pet insurance work?
Pet insurance works by paying a premium each month to secure coverage if an accident or illness occurs with your pet.
Depending on your chosen pet insuser, treatments can be partially or fully imbursed. Generally, you’ll pay out of pocket for any vet treatment first, and then file a claim afterwards to get reimbursed.
