How do I choose Pet Insurance?

Did you know, not all pet insurance is created equally?

Pet insurance, much like health insurance, is there to help pet owners cover the cost of emergency care when their pet gets sick or injured. It also gives pet owners (and vets!), peace of mind knowing a pet can receive the best care without money getting in the way and compromising decisions towards the pet’s care.

Pet insurance policies often differ greatly, and it’s important you choose a policy that’s right for both you and your pet.

When choosing a policy, make sure you look at things like:

  • Sub limits
  • Benefit level
  • Annual limits
  • Breed-specific coverage
  • Added extras
Every policy has their own variations. The last thing you want to discover is that your pet is not insured for something after it’s occurred!

There are a number of different pet insurance companies to choose from, so if you have a pet under the age of 12 months and are considering pet insurance, we would strongly advise you get some sort of cover so they’re protected, even if you’re still shopping around.

Here at Lynbrook Vet, we offer GapOnly™.

Providing GapOnly™ means that your insurance claim can be processed on the spot, with you only having to pay your gap!

This saves you paying your entire bill up front and means there is no waiting around for your insurance company to process your claim and pay you back!

GapOnly™ claims are only available for pets insured with the following companies:

A GapOnly™ claim can only be processed Monday to Friday between 8:00am – 10:00pm and Saturdays between 8:00am – 5:00pm (AEST, excluding NSW public holidays).

There are also many non gap companies to pick from with other great benefits.

Vets Choice offers 4 weeks of free cover for pets under 6 months of age, offering you peace of mind whilst looking to make the right choice. Our team can even sign your new puppy or kitten up at their free under 16 week health check or at any consultation.

If your pet is older, or if you are considering changing from your current pet insurance company but are concerned your pet has some pre-existing conditions, it would be worth giving Vets Choice a call as they look at resolved issues differently and may be able to help.

    I cannot recommend this vet clinic enough! I recently took my cat in for castration surgery and the whole experience was fantastic. The staff was incredibly caring and attentive, and they kept me updated with cute messages throughout each … More step of the process. I felt well-informed and confident that my cat was in good hands. I am so grateful for the excellent care they provided and will definitely be returning for any future pet needs. Thank you for everything!

    We have been using Lynbrook Vet since they opened their doors, they have grown significantly since then, but we still receive the same amazing service from the team. We are always confident that we will get the information & care needed … More for our fur kids without pushing unnecessary extras, could not be happier with the level of care from the team.Everyone from the vets, nurses & reception team have been amazing, I have no hesitation in recommending this practice to anyone looking for a vet that they can feel confident with.
