Prakash Khaire, Founder and CEO of Vetina Healthcare LLP says, "In countries such as UK, Australia, Canada, US, etc. pet insurance is already a practise. However, as per a rough estimate last year, less than two per cent of pet parents in India have been taking health insurance for their pets. With the recent changing trend, Indians in metros as well as Tier 2 cities are slowly taking the wellbeing and even grooming of their pets rather seriously. With our Medical cover plans, we want to make treatment of a pet affordable which will be boom for the Pet Practitioners since those currently avoiding or delaying the treatments will come forward for the treatment."
He adds, "When it comes to pets, the medical costs for their treatments can be quite high. Pawtect hopes to offer continuous support for maintaining pets' health and hopes to be a strong back-support for the welfare of your pet friends."
COVID -19 is bound to impact the finances of many and the best solution to avoid regrets later is to buy risk cover for medical treatment of pets. This also will help Pet Practitioners to protect their practice revenue since when the pets are covered for medical treatment exigencies, the pet parents will freely undergo medical treatment of their pets.
A data released by Statista reveals that India has 21.42 million pet dogs. The number is likely to reach 31 million by 2023. As per recent social trends, people above 60 years have started keeping pets at home. Trends also suggest a rise in number of hospitals, spas and F&B companies dedicated companies for pets. With such advancements, pet medical insurance will soon be experiencing a massive growth in India.
