Pet insurance

The best time to get pet insurance is when your pet is young, as generally it  will have no “pre-existing” conditions. Though any pet with a pre-existing condition can still be insured, the pre-existing condition itself will not be covered. Pre-existing is defined as a condition that shows clinical signs before the policy has been taken out.

You can get pet insurance for most animals, not just cats and dogs.

Why get pet insurance?


The main reasons why we believe pet insurance is a good thing is because it gives you (the owner):

  • Cover for unexpected costs – e.g. accidents or emergencies
  • Cover for expensive diseases or illnesses which your pet may develop, some of which may be life-long
  • Peace of mind that you will be able to afford to treat your pet no matter what happens

At Bakers Hill Veterinary Hospital we can offer you four weeks FREE insurance for your puppy or kitten (under 12 months) if you sign up within 24 hours of seeing one of our vets! During this first month you can claim up to $2000. This is a service we offer and it is completely obligation-free.
