A parrot is a mate for life. These beautiful, colourful animals can live for more than 50 years! With a parrot, you have a lot of fun in your home. Many people do not know that, besides cats, dogs and rabbits, you can also insure parrots. With a parrot insurance, you are insured if your winged friend suddenly falls ill.
Why insure your parrot or parakeet?
Actually, you can compare pet insurance with your own health insurance, with the difference that pet insurance is not obligatory. If you fall ill, you can fall back on your health insurance. Without health insurance, you would have to bear all the costs yourself. If your parrot gets sick and you do not have pet insurance, you will have to pay all medical costs yourself. Parrots can get quite old, so there is a good chance that they will get sick at some point. Besides, your parrot is probably a beloved member of your family. Of course, you want the best care for them. With parrot insurance, you will never have to choose between your parrot and your wallet.
What does parrot insurance cover?
With a parrot insurance you are insured for:
- Consultation and research
- Medicines and operations
- Disorders of the plumage
- Beak and nail grinding
- Specialist care
When taking out pet insurance, you can choose from 4 different types of cover: Basic, Plus, Total or Accident. You choose which cover to take out yourself. The percentage of the costs that is reimbursed differs per cover.
Parrot insurance benefits
Are you hesitating about taking out parrot insurance? We have listed all the benefits of parrot insurance for you:
- With parrot insurance, you can be sure that you are covered for medical costs for your parrot. These costs can sometimes be high, for example if an operation is required or if you need expensive medication.
- You pay a fixed monthly premium, so you don't have to worry about a high bill after an accident or illness.
- You decide which cover to take out for your parrot insurance. This way you can influence the monthly premium.
- With pet insurance, you can provide better care for your parrot. Without insurance, the high costs may force you to make a different decision than if you had taken out insurance. For example, euthanasia instead of an appointment with a specialist.
What are the costs?
The cost of parrot insurance depends on a number of factors. The insurer uses these factors to determine the amount of the premium. These factors include the age, weight and breed or crossbreed of your parrot. In addition, the costs depend on the coverage you take out. Of course, the broader the coverage, the higher the premium. The Total package is the most extensive cover, but you will pay more per month for it. Finally, the costs depend on any additional coverage. With a parrot insurance you can take out the additional coverage Cremation. This covers the costs for the cremation, including transport after death.
