PET INSURANCE

Many owners decide to purchase insurance for their pets. Pet insurance works differently from human insurance, in that the owner pays for the invoice up front, and submits a claim form to the insurance company to be reimbursed. Sequoia Veterinary Hospital does not officially recommend any particular insurance company. Rather, we recommend doing research and inquiring with each company to see what would be the best fit for you and your pets.
 
Here are some insurance companies our patients use, and a little information about them.
