Anticipated Impact of Covid-19 Outbreak

While pets are widely considered to be at low risk from the present Covid-19 outbreak, most pet insurance policies do not exclude specific virus strains. Consequently, such policies will cover claims for vet treatments. Such a trend will support greater adoption of pet insurance as pet owners continue to be concerned about potential risks from the outbreak.

So far, reports of infected pets have been minimal. According to researchers in China, cats can be infected by the coronavirus, while dogs are not as susceptible. However, the researchers have claimed that even cats are at low risk, as the experiments were conducted by injecting animals deliberately with large doses of the virus. Despite, such findings, the current lack of verifiable information, will support the demand for pet insurance policies in the near future.
