Pet insurance

Also known as pet health plans, these paw-licies are a way to manage costs if an employee's pet suddenly gets sick.

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.

Why should you offer pet insurance?

It's no secret that pets bring people a lot of joy. So you can imagine how difficult it can be when they become unexpectedly sick or injured. Here's how offering pet insurance as an employee benefit to your team can help...

Benefits to your employees:

  • Reduces the financial burden of unexpected or ongoing pet medical bills.
  • Peace of mind that their pet will be looked after properly in times of need. 

Benefits to you:

  • Happier employees who feel that their pets' health is supported by their employer. Happier employees are typically more motivated and productive at work. 
  • Attract better talent! Did you know that 3.2 million pets were adopted during the pandemic? This means that a whole lot more potential candidates will be swayed to join your company if you have great pet perks too!
