Why Get Pet Insurance?

Veterinary care is getting more expensive as more advanced options become available for animals. Health care for animals can be very costly, but with pet insurance you can get coverage for certain conditions for your furry family member. Pet insurance can assist you in getting your pets the best medical care available. Pet insurance is also a great way to budget for routine care expenses as well.

The Club's Pet Insurance offers a variety of coverage options including:

  • Accident and Illness Plans - Comprehensive and customizable coverage for accidents and illnesses that may occur during the life of your pet. These plans do cover chronic, congenital, and hereditary conditions. PetFirst accident and illness coverage can help cover things such as: upset stomach, medications, emergency vet care, exam fees, x-rays, surgeries, holistic care/alternative therapies, and much more!
  • Routine Care Riders - Routine Care riders are available as an add-on to your accident and illness coverage. This additional coverage can provide reimbursement for things such as: annual vet exam, vaccinations, heartworm preventative, flea and tick preventative, and much more. There are a few different options available to choose from. Routine Care will add an additional $11-$25 onto your monthly premium.
