Pet Insurance Now Covers Holistic Treatments For Pets

Some pet insurance policies cover more than just routine vet visits.

Jan 02, 2009 – Pet insurance has become a popular option as more and more pet owners look for ways to offset the rising costs of pet care.  Today there are quite a few pet insurance options available versus just a few years ago.  Couple this with the fact that alternative treatments and therapies (such as holistic treatments, acupuncture, chiropractic, physical rehabilitation, homeopathic and massage therapy) have entered main stream veterinary medicine, pet owners need to be sure that the policy they choose covers the treatments that are prescribed for their pet.

Below is just a sample of pet insurance companies that cover alternative treatments when prescribed and/or performed under authority of a licensed veterinarian:


  • Embrace 

  • Petplan 

  • Pets Best 

  • PurinaCare

As with any insurance policy, it is best to contact the company regarding specific situations to make sure that coverage is available.  Each company has different plans and coverage restrictions that may vary based on the level of coverage, state of residence, or type of illness/injury requiring treatment.
