Joey’s Tuesday Tip – Pet Insurance

By Scott Lackenby | Dated December 9, 2014

How are you all? I’m hoping we have seen the last of the storms for a while. I need a few days of good sunshine to dry out!

My tip this week is about something that is becoming more common with pet owners. Pet Insurance. And it’s something we recommend for people who are adopting a new pet. Having your pet covered with pet insurance is like having a financial safety net. In most cases you will be able to claim a portion of visits for things like ear infections and skin conditions. You can also claim for surgeries and accidents. In some cases, where there are big bills, such as severe tick paralysis or major surgeries, some insurance companies will pay Vet clinics directly so your out of pocket expenses are minimal. It’s great piece of mind knowing that the decisions you make about your pets treatment options will be based on what is best for them, rather than what’s best for your bank balance.

Like choosing car insurance, there are multiple policies and not one policy will suit everyone. Before choosing a company and policy, it’s important to do some research and read the PHD before signing up. To help out, we’ve compiled a table of some of the most popular companies.

We also have a new policy when it comes to us filling in insurance forms. Once dropped in, we need 2weeks to complete forms. If you need us to include a history or invoice, please tell us when you drop in your form. We are happy to send off forms providing you have completed all of your details and have included a stamped addressed envelope. It can take insurance companies up to 4 weeks to process claims.

I hope this has helped a little. It’s a complicated topic for a little Pymble Vet clinic cat!! Enjoy the rest of the week and I’ll catch you all on Thursday when I’ll be profiling someone who I am having an unashamed bromance with! Meows for now, love Joey xoxotumblr_n5atet1mPi1sji7f2o1_500

Absolutely love the service here. I switched from other Vets to this Vet as the staff here are quite attentive and really care about your furry baby! I have basically seen most of the Dr's here and all of them so far have been fantastic, friendly and fun to speak with! Easy to locate and enough parking available! 5 Stars indeed!

We found a stray, agitated dog in front of our house last night. We phoned but got no help from the Council ranger who gave two options: tie him up in front yard overnight or "let him loose, he'll find his own way home" :( So we phoned Gordon Vet: they stayed open a few minutes so we could run him up and he could have a bed and dinner. Thank you Gordon Vet Hospital, hope he gets home soon!!! :)
