Pets Best Insurance Announces Cat-Only Pet Insurance Plan

Posted on: August 15th, 2012 by

Boise, Idaho based Pets Best Insurance, one of the nation’s leading pet insurance agencies, announces the addition of a new, low-cost feline specific plan, with plan options starting at less than $4 a month.

After listening to the needs of cat owners from across the nation, Pets Best Insurance, the very company that was founded by US pet health insurance pioneer, Dr. Jack Stephens, has launched a low cost feline-only illness cat insurance plan to help cat owners provide the best veterinary care to their pets.

Pets Best Insurance has offered pet insurance plans to both cats and dogs since 2005, but this feline-only illness plan is the first of its kind, in that it only covers costly feline illnesses—whereas the standard plans cover both illness and accidents.

“While pet insurance is certainly increasing in popularity, we’re not seeing cat owners insure their pets at the same rate as dog owners,” Dr. Stephens said. “We’ve been told the reason is because our standard plan coverage was almost too comprehensive for indoor-only cats. Cat owners’ primary worry seems to be cat-specific illnesses—and so the Feline Illness plan was born.”

Posted on: July 18th, 2012 by

Leading U.S. dog and cat insurance agency, Pets Best Insurance publishes some of its most bizarre and downright weird summer-related pet insurance claims to remind pet owners that unexpected accidents and illnesses can occur at any time.

Dr. Jack Stephens, who presented the first pet insurance policy to celebrity TV dog Lassie in 1982, said he’s seen some peculiar summertime ailments in his tenure as both a practicing veterinarian and Pets Best Insurance President and Founder.

“The accidents and dangers pets encounter never cease to amaze me,” Dr. Stephens said. “We want pet owners to remember that as the weather warms and they’re spending more time outside, they should be extra cautious.”

*Some of the more unusual summertime pet health insurance claims the agency has received include:

1. Sunburn- That’s hot
A Boston Terrier may have enjoyed the summertime rays a bit too much, as Pets Best Insurance received a claim for his sunburn. “Pet owners often forget or perhaps aren’t aware that pets can easily sunburn too,” Dr. Stephens said. “Ears, noses and light colored pets are particularly susceptible. Pets also run the risk of developing Melanoma, which can require expensive treatments like surgical removal, chemotherapy and even radiation therapy. Limit your pet’s time in the sun and talk to your veterinarian about sunscreen application.”
