As someone who previously worked in the insurance industry, I wish to have a pet insurance available in the market. Me and my officemates (also furmoms/furdads) care alot on our furbabies, and we know ourselves the burden of having a sick pet – the stress, the financial struggles, the pain that our furbabies have to go through whenever they feel something, as they cannot talk like we do – sometimes they let us know, sometimes they don’t.
Sometime last two years ago, my now-senior dog Winwin had Pyometra and needs to undergo surgery and required to stay in the vet clinic for a week. Last year naman her eyes “popped out” and needs to be inoculated (but we refused!) but her eyeballs went back – but not the same as before. While we were thankful that our trusted Veterinarians saved her – grabe our struggles with the finances and even with our pet when it comes with their after-surgery care.
That is why it is a must to have a pet insurance. Like us, our pets also need protection, and also having a pet insurance saves us from unnecessary finances.
And that is why I am happy that finally, there’s now a pet insurance available under Cebuana Lhuillier!
Known for being the country’s leading and largest micro-financial service provider, Cebuana Lhuillier now offers pet insurance that is affordable for everyone.
The need for pet insurance across the country
It’s been a long time coming, as other countries already has this type of insurance before we do. also our country has one of the highest dog populations in the world with 11 million as of 2020, and the highest rate of pet ownership among the southeast Asian countries at 87%, 67% of pet ownership has led by dogs. pet ownership has been increased by 88% since the start of the pandemic, citing the need of having a pet insurance available for our furbabies for their health care needs.
My experience with Winwin from 2019 makes me want to have an insurance coverage for my pet, and as discussed during the pet insurance product launch, we never know if our babies are feeling something was off until we see that its already affecting their way of living. The vet expenses are almost the same as ours whenever we got sick.
During the launch, Cebuana Lhuillier CEO Jean Henri Lhuillier stated that “Dogs have always been loyal life companions, so it is only right that we take care of them, especially during their health emergencies. With responsible pet ownership in mind, Cebuana Lhuillier is proud to introduce a product that’s both accessible and affordable for many of our kababayans who would like to provide their pet dogs with the best care possible, regardless of breed. This highlights our company’s commitment to providing the most relevant and reasonable-priced financial products that respond according to their needs,”
