Company to offer pet insurance in New Zealand
An article in a New Zealand newspaper has announced a company there that will shortly offer pet insurance to cover the rising cost of pet care. The company, Medipet, will be offering the products and will be the country's first fully-fledged pet-only insurance company
They did not provide any addtional details on the cost of premiums to cover our little dogs and cats but gave some ranges that compared to existing coverage with other companies. Apparently Consumer Magazine has also put together a survey that discusses pet insurance costs.
The cost of carrying for pets continues to go up and all of us care deeply about them. Maybe advances in medicine, combined with new and better insurance options will reduce the expense of owning a pet and also improve thier lives.
