Car insurance for your pets? | January 24, 2008

I saw a commercial today for Progressive Auto Insurance that advertised a pet-friendly feature of its Collision policy.  If your pet is injured in an accident while riding in your car, Progressive will cover vet bills up to $500.  The policy also entitles customers to a discount on pet health insurance. 

It sounds interesting, but always be sure to read the fine print if you are interested.  If you take your pets on the road as much as we do, this might be a policy worth checking out.  Unfortunately, this offer isn’t available in NC, NH, and NY.  To find out more, click here.       

One more thing – The picture on Progressive’s page features a dog riding shotgun with its head sticking out of the window.  If that car were to be in an accident, I’m not sure insurance or a vet could do much to help.  That’s why earlier this month we wrote about the importance of securing your pet while traveling.  The insurance policy is nice safety net to have, but there are plenty of simple things you can do to make sure your pet is safe while being chauffeured around town.

About author

Hello - we are Jenny and Ryan, a couple living in Brooklyn, New York. We are both busy with school and work but try to take time to do something every day to make the world a better place for animals. Occasionally we may link to outside websites for additional resources, but we do not necessarily endorse all policies of these organizations. Despite the title of our blog, the focus is not only on walruses. So what's with the title? We named this blog after our cat, Wally, aka The Walrus. We are the proud parents of two cats (Wally and Tito) and one dog (Luigi).
