Types of emergency pet care

It goes without saying that you do everything you can to keep your pet safe, but accidents can happen even under the watch of the most vigilant pet parents. From swallowing socks to developing a food allergy, there are many ways your pet could get injured or sick — and you can stay prepared with Fetch Pet Insurance, which pays back up to 90% of unexpected vet bills. Whether you need emergency dog insurance or emergency cat insurance (or both), Fetch Pet Insurance helps you stay prepared for the unexpected and get your pet the necessary care.

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), other common pet emergencies include seizures, heatstroke, choking, eye injuries, fractured bones, lameness, severe anxiety, unconsciousness and the inability to urinate. These injuries and illnesses can be scary, but they are covered with Fetch Pet Insurance – so your vet bills won’t add to your stress.

Emergency pet care cost

From pre-anesthetic blood work to advanced imaging, urgent care often means a full evaluation to understand and treat quickly and effectively. Even after your pet has received the necessary treatment, they may require meds and therapy to make a full recovery. With the right pet insurance provider (like Fetch), you’ll get paid back up to 90% for both of these costs.
