Checklist: Pet care when you’re sick

You never know when you might fall unwell, so it’s best to ensure you have a plan for your pet’s care should the unexpected happen.

If you’re one of the 62 per cent of households in Australia with a pet1, you’re no doubt aware of the love and comfort they can bring.

Most pets do, of course, also bring obligations. Regular feeding, grooming, and other care are part of the package. While this is likely to be something you’ve thought about before bringing a pet into your life, you may not have thought about what happens if you become unwell and are unable to meet some of those obligations.

This free checklist will run through the things you need to think about if the unexpected does happen, including:

  • Immediate care
  • Looking towards the future
  • Preparing for medical costs
  • Obtaining optimum peace of mind
