Pet Insurance Now In India Too

The number of pet owners is growing at quite a fast pace in India. We all know that pets are expensive to buy and take care of. However, we always treat them as our family.

Talking about family, we make sure that our human family members have medical and life insurance. So, why not give the same importance to our furry little family member? Many foreign countries offer extensive pet insurance schemes to value the life of their loved furry friends.

Now, you can get your dog insured in India as well.

It is a fact that pet insurance has never been popular in India. One of the major reasons is the lack of awareness about it among the people. So, New India Insurance Company has introduced dog-specific insurance that provides coverage to dogs from 8 weeks old to 8 years old against death due to accident, or certain illnesses. The company will bear 80% of the claim amount and the Insured will bear 20% of the claim amount.
