What is Pet insurance?
If you have pets, you'll know how expensive veterinary bills can be. Pet insurance is a type of insurance policy that covers the costs of vet bills if an employee's pet becomes sick or injured in any way.
Depending on the policy, pet insurance will cover part or all of the costs associated with medical treatment for your pet — this can include medication, surgery, and check-ups.
