Question: What is Accidental Injury?
Answer: A physical or bodily injury that happens accidentally to your pet as a result of external, violent and visible means, for example a broken bone, snake bite or dog/cat fight.

Question: What is an Illness?
An Illness means an unexpected sickness or disease, or any change to your pet's normal healthy state that is not caused by injury to your pet. Examples include an upset stomach, skin conditions or an ear infection.

Question: Does Hollard Pet Insurance offer benefits towards preventative treatments?
Yes, but only if the Routine Care Cover option is chosen as an add-on option.

Preventative treatment includes vaccinations, deworming, tick and flea control, sterilisations and dental scaling (procedure only). Elective surgery is not covered.

Question: Does my pet have to have a microchip or tattoo to claim?
Answer: Yes, it does. This provides permanent identification and acts as your pet's medical aid card, allowing you to utilise any veterinarian countrywide.

Question: Where do I get a microchip?
Answer: Microchips are available from your local veterinarian, SPCA or PetSure. Your vet will inject the microchip painlessly under the loose skin of your pet. Note - no claims will be paid unless Hollard Pet Insurance has proof of this microchip insertion.

Question: Are there any age limits for the insurance?
Answer: Your pets must be between 8 weeks and 8 years of age to qualify - cover is for life, provided premiums are kept up to date

Question: When will my policy start and when can I claim?
Answer: Your policy will commence at midnight on the 1st day of the month once accepted. We do not pro-rate. The start date is printed on your certificate of insurance. You may make a claim for conditions which arise one calendar month after the start date.

Question: What is not covered?
Answer: Cover is not provided for preventative treatment unless the routine care cover option is selected. No cover is provided for pregnancy, congenital or hereditary defects, pre-existing conditions or for conditions showing clinical signs during the waiting period.

Question: Indoor pets don't have many health problems, do they?
Answer: When we think of the unexpected, we instantly think of accidents. However, over 75% of all claims are for illnesses and not accidents. Research shows that indoor pets are no less susceptible to these illnesses.

Question: Should I wait until my pet is older to purchase pet insurance?
Answer: Young pets are like babies and toddlers - they lack full coordination. They are more likely to experience injuries or get into trouble. It's always better to enrol them when they're young, especially before any conditions develops that then becomes pre-existing at time of joining.

Question: Instead of pet insurance, can’t I just start saving now for an illness or accident?
Answer: The intention is right, but like any insurance will you have saved enough for a serious injury or accident when a sudden emergency occurs? Most people aren't prepared for the actual cost of veterinary emergency care, or adequately prepared to put aside that much money at one time.
