Stop buzzing around - make sure your furry members of the family are covered with pet insurance that even pays you before you see the vet. Sounds pretty great, right? Well, keep reading to find out even more barking mad benefits of Oneplan Pet Insurance.

If you are looking for pet insurance that covers you for the things that matter most (and more), then you are barking up the right tree (you’ll have to deal with the usage of pet puns, we are pretty passionate about pets after all).

In any case, as a pet owner, it can be a pretty daunting task to find the right pet insurance provider that suits your pets needs and of course, your pocket.

The trick is to never compromise on quality.

Simply put - cheaper is NEVER better.

The thing is, you want to find a pet provider and choose a pet plan that gives you great cover, but doesn’t cost an arm and a paw.

Let’s first cover the most important question (and we get asked this a lot)...

Is pet insurance really worth it?

Before we bark out the answer, let’s look at a scenario…

You and your dog are spending a great day out in the park when suddenly your precious pooch is attacked by another dog.

You rush him to the vet and the surgery bills amount to R15 000. Do you have that kind of cash lying around?

Another example might be something more long-term where you find out your cat has cancer. The treatment for this alone will amount to thousands of rands. Nevermind the cost of surgery.

Then there are the ongoing costs of routine care like dental cleanings, check-ups and deworming.

Starting to get the hint?

Pet insurance helps cover the costs of both routine and emergency care (depending on your chosen plan of course).

For a small monthly premium, you are covered for the unexpected, expected and everything in between.

So, now that we have your attention, let’s get to the pawesome reasons why Oneplan is the pet insurance of your pet’s (and your) dreams…

Why Oneplan

1. We pay you before you see your vet

You read that right, we have changed the game when it comes to claiming with our simple and easy system that pays you BEFORE you see your vet.

How we do this is with our Onecard.

Here’s how this works…

When you become a client of ours, we will send you a Onecard. This card is basically like a debit card that you use to swipe and pay at your vet’s office.

All you have to do upload your claim on the Oneplan App and the funds will be transferred to your card within seconds.

2. Paperless claims

This ties into our Onecard.

All claiming is done through our smart and simple app.

This means that you don’t have to waste precious time (that you could be enjoying in the park with your pet), filling in forms.

3. Cover for vet visits and emergency care

Depending on what pet plan you choose, our Pet Plans include a wide range of cover options.

Our Pet Classic Plan and Pet Super Plan both include cover for vet visits.

Have a look at our blog post on the topic - you’ll find all the information you need right here.

But to break it down, here’s what your pet is covered for:

Vet Visits:  

4 visits to your vet each year. These include - Consultations, radiology (x-rays), pathology (blood tests) and minor dental procedures.

Routine care:

●     Sterilisation

●     Consultations for and/or vaccinations, deworming, flea control

●     Anal gland expression

●     Teeth scaling and polishing

Emergency care for accidents and illness

These include things like when your pet is hit by a car or gets sick.

4. Keep your vet (or go to ANY vet of your choice)

Another great thing is that we let you go to ANY vet of your choice.

Unlike other pet insurance providers who have a certain network of vets you have to choose from, we let you keep your vet, or choose any vet you like.

It’s just another way we are making pet insurance simple and cuddle-worthy.

What pet insurance plan is right for me?

If you are ready to pick a pet plan, then you might be wondering what plan you should choose.

Well, it’s always a good idea to think about the needs of your pet and your budget.

For example, some dogs like pugs tend to know their vet on a first-name basis due to hereditary issues like breathing problems. If this is the case, then you might want to look into a more comprehensive plan.

If your pet is in good health, young and bounding through life, then maybe just a pet hospital plan is your best pet.

Yours in cuddle-worthy pet insurance,
