For the remainder of 2015, the pet health insurance company will be surprising pet owners by paying vet bills

WINNIPEG, May 22, 2015 /CNW/ - Petsecure recently kicked off its pay it forward campaign by paying portions of vet bills at veterinary clinics in Edmonton, Winnipeg and Calgary. The campaign started on Pay it Forward Day and will continue on a monthly basis across Canada, throughout 2015.

When pet owners at the four clinics went to pick up their animals they were delighted to find out part of or their entire vet bill had been covered.

Melissa Miller was one of the recipients of the pay it forward campaign at Centennial Animal Hospital, in Winnipeg.

"This gift means everything…being on maternity leave, it's a huge help," she said after finding out part of the bill had been covered. "I had heard of pet insurance before today but it's something that I didn't really look into as much as I should have and I wish I would have."

"At Petsecure, our priority is the health and wellbeing of animals," said Loraine Nyokong, Director of Sales for Petsecure. "We love to be able to give back to pet owners who may not be able to fully cover their vet bills."

Pet health insurance provides a variety of options to ensure pets have the proper coverage for regular check-ups or in the event they need more major procedures. It also gives owners peace of mind that their pet will be able to receive the care they need.  

The company will continue to surprise pet owners by paying vet bills at new clinics in different cities each month. The next round of surprises will happen on May 29th in Halifax, Northern Ontario and Vancouver.
