Review: Liberty PetCare the First Pet Insurance in Singapore

Singapore Pet Insurance | Vanillapup

In search of a pet healthcare insurance? Let us review the Liberty PetCare insurance with you – eligibility, premiums, coverage, benefits, and restrictions.

[Updated as of April 2017]

I remember that within the first week of bringing me home, mama told papa that she wanted someone to pay for my trips to the vet. I found that really strange. Why would anyone do that? And why doesn’t she just stop sending me to the vet? I don’t find it fun anyway. Humans, in general, seem to like to make simple things complicated.

Well, clearly I am missing something because someone actually started what mama calls, “Singapore’s first pet insurance policy” two weeks ago.  According to her, someone would help pay for up to 70% of my vet bills and other events. That sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

Eligibility

The insured pet must:

  • Be microchipped
  • Reside regularly in the same premise as you
  • Be at least eight weeks old and not more than nine years old at the enrolment date
  • Not be a working dog, such as a guide or guard dog
  • Not be a dog or cat used for breeding purposes

Major Exclusions

  • Illness arising from any intentional, neglectful, or preventable act
  • Liability arising from any intentional or preventable act
  • Pre-existing, hereditary, congenital, and skin conditions
  • Day-to-day care, including vitamins, supplements, vaccinations, training and grooming
  • Damage to teeth and gums unless as a result of an accident
  • Illness related to endoparasites or ectoparasites, hip dysplasia, and rabies
  • Elective procedures and treatments, such as nail clipping, tail docking and debarking

What’s good about it:

  • Pet owners can use any vet in Singapore
  • No medical examination is required
  • Covers eligible non-surgical vet expenses
  • There’s a no claim discount of up to 15%
  • Premium remains the same regardless of your pet’s age (eligible for dogs below eight years old, and the policy covers till 10 years old)

What’s not so good:

  • The policy excludes quite a few things to keep the premium low, such as skin, hereditary, and congenital conditions
  • Coverage isn’t lifetime (up to age 10 only)

    Hi Latte’s mom, there is another new insurance now by MSIG, called Happy Tails. Would love to hear your views about it, though it seems to me that the deductible seems rather high ><
