PET INSURANCE is becoming more and more popular in Australia. Accidents, fractures, illnesses and other medical emergencies are an all too common occurrence. The sad reality is vet bills are expensive and are often unexpected. This is where pet insurance comes in – if you take out pet insurance you have the peace of mind of knowing that the quality of care your pet receives isn’t limited by finances. At Port Kennedy Veterinary Hospital we strongly encourage all owners to take out pet insurance.
