Our dogs’ lives are just as important as our’s. As the saying goes, we don’t deserve dogs for always being there for us. Where we see them as an additional companion, to them we are their world. No human can top the love and loyalty being freely given by our fur babies 24/7 and as responsible pet owners, its our duty to look after their well-being.
Aside from regular baths, vet check-ups, quality food, and lots of playtime, we can now get insurance for dogs who are six months to eight years old under the GInvest feature of GCash. Note, however, that insurance is only applicable for home dogs (stunt pets and security dogs are not included) who are fully vaccinated.
Insurance as low as Php 650 for one month are available to cover medical reimbursements as much as Php 100,000; injuries as much as Php 15,000; burial assistance as much as Php 10,000; and accident cover for as much as Php 50,000 under Malayan Insurance.
PET INSURANCE PACKAGES
With Pet Insure, we can protect both our dogs and ourselves as pet owners, to provide the best care in the face of unexpected circumstances without having to break the bank for every visit to the vet. Here’s a quick rundown of the packages available:
- Medical Reimbursement: In cases that your dog will need to undergo check-ups, tests/scans, surgery, GInsure will cover the expenses based on the covered amount of your insurance plan
- Cruciate Ligament Injuries: These are extremely painful knee joint injuries/ruptures that your dog may possibly get due to repeated trauma or arthritic disease. In these cases, your chosen Pet Insure plan can also cover it so long as it is not an intentionally inflicted injury.
- Burial Assistance: In the unfortunate circumstance your dog will be needed to be put down due to sickness and/or old age, GInsure’s Pet Insure can help alleviate the added stress of costly burial services.
- Owner’s Liability: It cannot always be avoided that your fur baby can cause some accidents. Your insurance can help cover any legal liabilities to 3rd parties due to your dog’s actions
As with all GCash services, getting your pet insurance is convenient and hassle-free. In order to qualify, you will need to have a fully verified GCash account, proof of Philippine citizenship or legal residence for foreigners, and a filled out form in-app containing details about your dog.
