SA gets a new Medical Aid - for pets!

An easy to understand medical aid for our pets has been lacking until now, but a new innovative company, MedipetSA, has taken the initiative, launching its first product for dogs and cats.

It's hard enough for us as humans to wade through the multitude of options available to us from the various medical aid offerings, so a simple one for dogs and cats to read is as essential for their owners. MedipetSA allows pet owners to opt for an uncomplicated comprehensive medical aid for dogs and cats. It's easy to understand and you know what you are getting for your money.

Whilst we are duty-bound to care for our pets the escalating, and often misunderstood, costs of a vets examination or treatment forces many either to ignore a problem, or wait for their number to be called at the SPCA or similar facility.

"Medical cover for pets is commonplace overseas and whilst a few companies in South Africa have tried to offer various products, neither pet owners or vets have used them in any great numbers mainly due to the complicated plans and schemes on offer", says Richard Neville, MD of MedipetSA.

Pet insurance companies oversees are seen as essential, yet South Africans have been a little more resistant when it comes to reading pet insurance policies with what sometimes seems to be more exclusions and opt-outs than actual cover.

The monthly premium covers costs of up to R25000 per annum, though pre-authorisation is required for certain procedures. This will dissuade pets from running up huge vet bills for unnecessary procedures such as cosmetic surgery.

"For a monthly premium of just R125 for dogs and R115 for cats, not only will this be good for owners' pockets, but also for the welfare of their pets and those registering online at before January the 1st will get a discount on the premium ", adds Neville.

Pets from 8 weeks to 9 years old qualify for life, giving peace of mind to owners and pets alike.
