Pet Insurance that covers vet bills and not just emergencies
Being a pet parent means dedicating your life to nursing your sick pet back on its paws. That can be financially and emotionally draining if you don’t have this ONE thing.
A quick reality check
Let’s switch up the start of this blog, shall we? I want to know what your go-to strategy for spoiling your furry friend is. Is it tasty treats? A fluffy bed or overpriced toys?
While these options definitely have merit, the truth is that one of the best ways to spoil your pet is by regularly taking them to your local vet.
I know what you’re probably thinking. In comparison to a chew toy, vet bills are significantly more expensive. Now before you go gripping your wallet or clicking off this blog, there is a way for you to avoid all of those vet bills.
Have I got your attention now? Good.
The solution to covered vet bills is surprisingly simple: comprehensive pet insurance.
Debunking vet-related myths
Contrary to popular belief, and other pet insurance brands you’ve probably encountered, pet insurance isn’t solely for pet emergencies. A common myth around these insurance circles is that this level of care can only be accessed when there is an accident or the need for hospital care.
There is another incessant myth that all pet insurers cover vet visits. Unfortunately, when you see the word “comprehensive” you may want to check the T’s & C’s because more often than not, they aren’t. A significant number of insurers don’t actually cover those costs – so watch out! Your wallet will thank you for it.
Many pet owners believe that whenever they hear about how common pet emergencies are, it is just a marketing ploy by major pet insurers. And yet, the statistics prove the importance of pet insurance. Did you know that every 1 in 3 pets will need emergency medical treatment in their lifetime? So, I think those numbers say more than I need to here.
Importance of vet visits
Unlike us humans, pets have a tendency to be experts at hiding their pain or sickness. In fact, we are more likely to acknowledge that our pet isn’t well once they are already significantly sick. You may think that your pet is okay, but rather let a registered professional determine that.
Taking your pet to the vet on a regular basis truly is one of the most important forms of preventative care. This is where your vet can assess underlying issues that may arise at a later stage.
It is also important to note that heading to the vet regularly actually works out cheaper. You’ve got to spend a little money to save money, right? Look at it this way: when you allow a physical illness to progress, without intervention, you run the risk of major medical emergencies.
Medical professionals say that unaddressed ailments will end up costing up to 10 times more than the original amount. Saving your pet and your finances is as easy as committing to regular visits to your local vet.

So, should I be opting for vet cover?
I am not going to lie that this paragraph isn’t slightly awkward because I would like to think that you were already convinced…I mean, I even threw in a good old statistic.
With that being said, if you are feeling slightly hesitant about signing up for pet insurance, I completely get it. We are all looking at our finances a little closer during this time, but the reality is that paying a small monthly fee is the key to financial freedom.
Your pet deserves the best, and you have the option to get a personalised key to exceptional medical care…and all you have to do is ask for it as it’s already available and waiting for you.
It is important to remember that pet insurance is designed to look after YOU so that you can adequately look after your pet.
