Animal Insurance from MediPet

Animals are often far more than just what the word implies. When an animal is brought into our homes they become loved and more often than not they come to play a vital role in the family. They even become a part of the family. So when one of our pets becomes ill or is accidentally injured we can feel the same sort of care and emotional distress as if it were a member of our family that were in need of medical attention. That is why health insurance for our pets can be as useful and as necessary as our own health insurance.

Knowing that no matter what happens to your beloved animals, whether they be cats or dogs, they are guaranteed with health care cover is something that will not only cover them with good health and medical attention but will also protect you form vet bills which could at times run into thousands of rands. Through Medipet the cost of your pets health cover is not only affordable and manageable but helps you can plan ahead for your pet’s health requirements before they need them and by doing so you can save yourself time, money and unnecessary worry.

The Vet: your extended family doctor

Your animal’s doctor knows just how to take good care of your animal’s health. They can identify any potential health hazards, spot any irregularities in your cat or dog and can even give you good practical advice on taking care of your cat or dog. And when your pet is ill or injured there is no one better to take care of their health than a qualified and understanding vet. But the one draw back of this reliability is the potential costs of medical treatment.

There are certain veterinary visits that you can be financially prepared for – such as your cat or dog’s annual shots and other routine check ups, but for those unexpected visits to the vet it is good to know that you and your pet can be covered by Medipet health insurance. Having a partner in taking care of your pet’s health can make the job a lot easier.

Medipet offers you nationwide coverage and the use of any vet countrywide. Cover is up to R25 00 per year and with no specified limits you can be assured that no matter what your emergency or need is to see your pet’s doctor, your pet is covered by general and reliable medical insurance.

The benefits of pet grooming

A shiny coat on our cats or dogs not only looks good and is very pleasing to the eye of a pet owner but is also generally a sign that the pet is physically well and in good health. Knowing that your pet’s exterior is well taken care of and looked after through regular grooming means that you will very quickly notice when something is wrong with your cat or dog.

In this, the grooming of your cat or dog can be a way of making sure that your pet has a good bill of health. Not only will their coats and general good feeling be improved through regular grooming but you will also be able to keep yourself aware of any physical changes in your pet. If your pet is kept clean, and in the case of long haired cats or dogs is kept brushed, you will easily be able to pick up on the dulling of their fur or any other unusual changes in your pet’s appearance that may stem from a medical or health reason. Keeping in touch with your vet and having your pet’s health protected with insurance cover means that while you are taking care of your pet’s grooming needs you are also guarded against any unexpected accidents and visits to the vet.

Ensuring your dog’s physical health by feeding them the correct dog foods will at the same time ensure that your dog is mentally alert, energetic and living life as enjoyably as possible.
