"If only there was insurance for pets!" Well there is...With many policies costing less than $1.00 per day!
We commonly hear the refrain from clients "if only there was insurance for pets!" after they have incurred significant costs for an illness or injury to one of the family pets.
At Gladesville Veterinary Hospital we encourage pet insurance. We regularly encounter situations where a much-loved pet suddenly requires expensive veterinary treatment - this can be a serious financial strain when it occurs without warning and without budgeting.
Health insurance allows peace of mind that in these situations, you can embark on the best course of treatment without having to be concerned about overriding financial considerations.
There are a number of companies in Australia offering pet health insurance, either as a part of house and contents insurance, health insurance, (eg HCF, GIO) or as stand-alone pet policies. As is the situation in the human health insurance field, each one offers various features differentiating them from the competition.
Gladesville Veterinary Hospital and the Australian Veterinary Association do not endorse any particular pet insurance scheme or company.
We hold brochures of several companies and are happy to discuss the basics of insurance for your pet, however we advise that you contact the various insurance companies for further information and details of their policies.
For your convenience we have listed below some of the companies which offer pet insurance policies including a link to their websites and telephone numbers.
