We highly recommend pet insurance for your peace of mind. Veterinary treatment and the standard of care available today is very advanced and if your beloved pet gets sick, the costs can add up quickly.
A comprehensive pet insurance policy could reduce your veterinary bills by up to 80%, meaning you can seek the optimal care for your pet when it is required, and without you worrying about the cost.
There are several different companies offering pet insurance. Some specialise only in pet insurance, and others deal with home and car insurance and will add pet insurance on to your existing policy. We advise you to do your research, as not all companies offer the same level of cover. It is important that you shop around to find a company that will provide a level of cover that is suitable for your pet and whose premiums match your budget.
Check for any exclusions before signing up – some policies will insure a condition for life, whereas others will only cover a particular condition for twelve months. Some policies will cover basic illnesses, while others will cover illnesses and accidents. The policy you choose and the level of cover you receive will be reflected in your monthly premiums.
Any puppy or kitten that visits us is offered one month’s free insurance in a joint initiative with Greater Springfield Veterinary and Petplan.
Our popular Springfield Pet Club is designed to complement all third party pet insurance plans. Pet Club memberships cover preventative health costs (vaccinations, dental, desexing etc) while pet insurance policies cover reactive health costs (illness, accidents, injury etc). Utilising both means your pet AND your wallet are protected, all year round!
