Protect Your Best Friend — Even When You’re Traveling


Editor’s Note: Sponsored by Physicians Mutual Insurance Company. 

Our pets are family, and now, more than ever, they’re our travel companions, too.

Making memories together … sharing new adventures on vacation …  or simply visiting friends and family, those experiences bring us so much joy.

But when you have a pet, you know — things happen. And whether you’re home or on a trip, you just want your dog or cat to get the best care possible, and not have to worry about where you can go or how much it will cost.

With pet insurance from Physicians Mutual, you can take your best friend with you, worry-free.  

Where Can I Use My Pet Insurance?

If your pet isn’t feeling well and you’re far from home, the last thing you need is added stress about where you can take them for treatment. With Physicians Mutual pet insurance, you can see any veterinarian you like, anywhere. So if your pet needs care — even at an emergency clinic or with a specialist in another city, they’ll be covered. 

What Else Does Pet Insurance Cover?

Here are some highlights that make Physicians Mutual pet insurance a smart choice:

  • You can get coverage for any breed of dog or cat, at any age
  • Up to 100% reimbursement of your vet bills — treatment for illnesses, surgery, lab tests, X-rays, hospitalizations and more
  • There’s no deductible or co-pay for emergency, lifesaving treatment
  • No lifetime maximum benefit
  • Benefits for wellness — like exams, dental treatments and vaccines

Do My Benefits Change If I’m Away From Home With My Pet?

Absolutely not. Quality vet care is expensive, and the cost can vary depending on location. But with Physicians Mutual pet insurance, there are no networks, so you’ll receive the same benefits, worry-free, no matter where you and your pet go.

Is Pet Insurance Really Worth It?

Let’s say your 4-year-old dog “Max” breaks his leg and needs surgery. The vet bill is $3,500, but with the Physicians Mutual Preferred plan, you’ll collect $2,925 — leaving you with much less to pay out-of-pocket — and saving you thousands.

Can My Pet Be Covered Before Our Next Trip?
