Interested in pet insurance?

The Cardiff Animal Hospital & Wellness Center strongly encourages all of our patient’s families to consider enrolling them in a pet insurance program. It is far too often that we see patients go without needed medical care due to the costs associated with diagnostics and treatment.

Often, we find that our patients go without pet insurance because their families are overwhelmed by the prospect of researching pet insurance options, and not knowing where to start – or even if pet insurance is worth it – give up or never even begin the search.

To make it a little easier, we have provided links to Healthy Paws and Embrace, the two companies we – as a hospital and as pet owners ourselves (yes, even veterinary staff have insurance on their pets!) – are most familiar with (though we have patients covered by a number of different pet insurance companies).
