Slide Pet Insurance At Bestfriends Animal Clinic, we recommend pet health insurance for our clients as a good way to budget for your pet's veterinary care. All too often pets will have a medical emergency or develop health problems when you are least prepared for it financially. Pet insurance allows you to pay affordable monthly premiums and have peace of mind knowing you have financial help with up to 80% reimbursement after any deductible.

Pet insurance covers unexpected accidents and illness that can happen to your pet.

It covers things like:

  • Emergencies
  • Surgery
  • Lab tests
  • X-rays
  • Treatments
  • Prescriptions
  • Hospitalization
  • Injections

You can:

  • Visit any veterinarian, including a specialist or emergency care clinic
  • Decide the treatments and care you want for your pet
  • Add additional coverage to help cover costs of wellness/routine care
  • Choose what deductibles and coverage amounts based on your budget
Whatever your decision, we will help you with claim forms for any pet insurance plan you may choose. To learn more about pet insurance options, Please click on the logo.
