A recent study indicates that 57% of Canadian households own a pet. The same article highlighted that on some days, dog owners in BC actually love their dogs more than their spouse, partner or significant other. The same study also concluded that 99% of dog owners considered their dog as part of their family. Pet Insurance in Vancouver is becoming a more common purchase for pet owners to consider, given the increase in veterinarian costs.
For that reason, InsureBC decided to partner with Petplan Insurance, to offer a solid Pet Insurance product to all British Columbia Residents who own a dog or a cat. We even negotiated a special InsureBC exclusive rate for pet insurance, that is 10% off the regular rate Petplan charges. This provides you with a relatively low-cost pet health insurance option to consider for your four-legged family member to ensure their continued quality of life.
Through our 90 insurance brokerages, InsureBC is one of the largest Pet Insurance providers in all of BC. Visit one of our offices to learn more about Pet Insurance and to get a free quote.
