Well if you have a dog or a cat, there's an absolute ton of pet insurance companies out there. A quick Google search and you'll find page after page all set to make sure they're covered. With exotic pets, you're much more limited. Last year, and this year, I only found two out of over 20 companies that will insure ferrets. Of that, one of them is in the UK, which doesn't help if you live in the US, like 97% of my readers. The one company that does insure carpet sharks is . They're a good company- but there are some serious limitations on a ferret policy. When I wrote to them, this was part of the information I received, "...However, like most insurance policies, VPI has some exclusions to help keep premiums low. For ferrets, the diagnosis, medical management, or surgical correction of any endocrine tumors, both benign and malignant, or endocrine hyperplasias of any kind are excluded from policy coverage." (Extract quoted for brevity, you can read their full response on the first post I linked at the beginning of the article). When you realize they're charging you somewhere in the neighborhood of $180 a year for the policy, and you can go through 3 years of premiums in a couple of vet visits with a ferret with insulinoma, you can see why they limit the policy. But how do you limit YOUR expenses and still take care of the furkids? I think I have the answer.You can get coverage through an exotic pet insurance. Some insurance providers, such as VPI, arealready accepting cover for ferrets. There is even an option to provide a multiplepet discount, if you have more than one.Last year I wrote a post about Ferret Pet Insurance, and it turned out to be one of the most popular on the site. It seems a lot of “ferret parents” are looking for this coverage- I know I was too. You see part of being a good ferret Mommy or Daddy is ensuring that […]Pet insurance for your ferret will cover a wide variety ofillnesses and accidents. This includes hospitalization, surgeries, prescribedmedicines and even x-rays. It may even provide benefits for medical treatmentsfor cancer, liver infections, insulinoma and ferret adrenal disease. With the little medical emergency we had with the reaction the rabies shot, I did some digging into ferret pet insurance. When you search on the web for pet insurance, there are plenty of providers, however the vast majority of them are only for dogs and cats. Of the fifteen or so providers I checked, only one US company, , insured ferrets. I'm familiar with VPI through some of their pet articles, and they seem like nice folks. My experience with their customer service department mirrors that opinion, they were fast and friendly. I wanted a little more detail on what they cover, particularly the most costly medical expenses I've seen with my ferrets over the years, and . Here's what their customer service had to say:Veterinary visits can be quite expensive and the bills can really add up. Plus, most vets require payment up front. It may not be much of a financial burden for your ferret’s routine visits, but what if she gets sick or hurt? What if there is an emergency or she needs surgery or treatment for a chronic condition? I have spent thousands of dollars in vet bills within a few years due to sick ferrets. Ferret parents need the financial assistance of pet insurance too. Too many ferret parents are faced with the decision of putting a ferret down due to costly vet bills.
