Considering Pet Insurance?

Insurance plans are one way to help offset planned and/or unexpected pet care costs. There are many great plans out there; however, many plans exclude hereditary and congenital conditions (or charge higher premiums for specific breeds that are more at risk). In addition, some plans are wellness only while others are accident and illness plans only, while others allow you to add on additional needs.  We recommend that you do your research and determine the best plan for you and your pets’ needs.

Clients with Trupanion Express Pet Insurance: At the end of your visit, the clinic will process your claim through the Trupanion Express portal for payment of insured portion of bill. Remaining client balance is due immediately.

For all other pet insurance, the client is responsible for contacting the insurance company when an insured animal is presented. The client will be responsible for the fees incurred and the insurance company will reimburse the client as the plan outlines.
