Because vet bills can be expensive – but your pet is priceless

Right now, your pet is thinking about you. That’s all they ever do – they make sure we’re safe and well, so it makes sense to return the favour. After all, preparing for the mischief your pet gets into is part of the journey, and your duty, as a loving pet owner.

Unfortunately, veterinary treatment can be very expensive – even a simple procedure can cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars. This means that many owners cannot afford to treat their four-legged friends when they need it most.

That’s where pet insurance comes in. Depending on your level of cover, pet insurance will reimburse you for up to 80% of eligible vet bills, helping you get the treatment your furry companion deserves.

Watch out for vet bills

Australians spend a substantial amount of money a year on vet bills for their cat or dog. The cost of treatment has risen so high that even a simple procedure can cost you thousands of dollars. Unfortunately, this means many owners won’t be able to afford treatment for their pets when they need it most. 

With pet insurance, you’ll always be sure that your beloved cat or dog will get the best possible care – without worrying about the cost.

Consider Seniors Pet Insurance

At Australian Seniors, we believe that older pet owners are wiser ones too. That’s why we offer affordable pet insurance at a 10% discount for over 50s, letting you enjoy those fun moments with your cat or dog without worrying about their wellbeing.
