Pet Health Insurance Month

Pet Health Insurance Month

Each year in September, pet health insurance companies across North America recognize Pet Health Insurance Month. It’s a time to spread the word about pet insurance and how it can benefit families and keep our pets happy and healthy.

If you’re already a Petsecure customer, thanks for putting your trust in us! We’re proud to have you as part of our growing community of pet owners. Please take the opportunity this month to spread the word about pet insurance to your friends and family, so we can help protect even more Canadian pets!

If pet insurance is new to you, here are some basics: 

What is pet health insurance?
Pet health insurance helps pay some or most of the costs of diagnosing, treating, and managing your pet’s illness or injury. Thanks to ongoing improvements in veterinary medicine, your veterinarian is able to offer ever-progressive therapeutic plans and improved outcomes for your dogs and cats. With improved care, however, comes increased cost, and that’s where pet health insurance comes in. 

How does it work?
Keeping your pet's health and your family's finances protected can be complicated, but Petsecure can make it simple. Only a few basic steps separate you from your pet getting sick or injured and you getting reimbursed for your first claim.

Visit the How it Works section of our website to see just how simple it can be, as well as what we cover. 

Who needs it?
You may think insurance is only relevant to active dogs who participate in sports or spend a lot of time camping and hiking. But even sedentary dogs who spend much of their life on the couch are still prone to arthritis and hormonal conditions and other health concerns. Your own veterinarian can help you explore the different health concerns that may be anticipated based on your pet’s breed and lifestyle. Because we cover accidents and illnesses, pet insurance can be beneficial even for the most unexpected events. 

What about cats?  Outdoor cats may be exposed to different types of poisons and infections associated with animal encounters.  Indoor cats may not be as accident-prone as dogs and their outdoor counterparts, but during their golden years, mature cats can develop a number of chronic diseases like diabetes and kidney failure. Over time, these conditions can become very expensive to manage. Pet health insurance gives owners the ability to make decisions about diagnostic testing and treatment based on the best interests of their cat.
