Pet insurance offers peace of mind for owners. Dog and cat insurance are two of the fastest growing insurance types in Australia. But many pet owners are unaware of pet insurance and what he benefits are.

Pet Insurance has many specific benefits however the most important is peace of mind. In a perfect world you would never have to make a claim on your pet insurance, but the reality isn’t that way. It is estimated that 1 out of 3 pets will require emergency veterinary care every year.

The benefits of Pet Insurance:

  • Enables pet owners to focus on the health of their pet, rather than the costs of their care.
  • Saves on additional treatment costs, like stays in the veterinary hospital or X-rays.
  • Increases the treatment options available to the pet, including medically necessary surgeries and chemotherapy.
  • Ability to treat pets for costly procedures like tick paralysis, cruciate ligament surgery, cataract removal, spinal surgery or FLUTD surgery.
  • A range of policy options to suit your needs and budget. 
  • If your pet is lost or stolen, some pet insurance plans offer funds for a reward to the individual who has found it. Pet insurance can also help cover the cost of boarding kennels/catteries if you are hospitalised or help with legal costs if your dog causes any damage or injury to a 3rd party.

There are many insurance policies available. Park Ridge Animal Hospital and Browns Plains Veterinary Surgery recommend Petplan dog and cat insurance. This isn’t because we receive any sort of rebate or kickback from signing up clients – we don’t. It is because we believe it provides the best policies on the market. Petplan offers genuine “Covered for Life” policies which means that if your pet develops a chronic illness or disease, they will provide cover for treatment and medication for the rest of the pet’s life. But like any decision, do your research and choose the policy that best suits your needs.
