Pet insurance: free trial for cairns pets under 12 months old at Cairns Vet Clinic

Pet insurance trial for for Cairns pets

Cairns Vet Clinic is offering free pet insurance trial for dogs and cats under 1 year of age: 

Cairns Vet Clinic has long recomended pet insurance to our clients: now we are pleased to offer a free trial of 1 month pet insurance for all pets under 12 months of age when they are vaccinated or desexed. 

We strongly encourage you to continue the policy: hopefully you never need it, but if you do need pet insurance you’ll be very glad to have it.  We’ve had plenty of our clients tell us what a blessing pet insurance has been to their family when their pet is unwell.  When you are facing serious injury or illness in your family dog or cat the last thing you want to be worrying about is the cost.

There are a wide range of options for pet insurance: make sure you choose one which covers the big things like tick paralysis, broken legs and long term medical problems.  There are some cheaper options which exclude common diseases, especially things like tick paralysis or ruptured cruciate ligaments, or only pay a small amount or have a low cap.

We don’t sell pet insurance or get a commission if you buy it, but we DO want you to get it.  It means if your pet breaks its leg or needs chemotherapy, you won’t have to put it down because you can’t afford to spend $2,000-$7,000 to treat it.  We are happy to answer any questions you have about pet insurance for your pets at any time.  Even if your pet is over 12 months of age, you should still look at pet insurance unless you are confident you can cover major unexpected medical expenses for your pet.

The pet insurance plan we recommend, Pet Plan has been operating in Australia for a long time and offer the most comprehensive cover that we have found of the different policies we have compared.  We actually don’t mind which quality insurance you choose, as long as you consider it so you can look after your pet if they do get sick or hurt.  The monthly cost with Pet Plan is around $22-$28 for cats and $36-$46 for dogs.  There are many cheaper policies but they usually limit total costs, have high excess or exlude common, expensive problems.

There are a wide range of pet insurers out there: Pet plan was one of 6 insurers recommended in a comparison done by choice magazine: You can read the pet insurance review here:
