Pet Care Insurance  from Massachusetts Specialists

What is Pet Care Insurance?

Watching pets is a significant responsibility, and with such a responsibility comes some risk. Should a pet become injured, become ill or pass away while in the care of a business, the business might be held liable. Pet care insurance may offer Massachusetts businesses that watch pets protection in the event of a covered injury, illness or death of an animal.

Pet care insurance is a particular type of commercial insurance that has been specifically designed for pet care businesses. Since most of these businesses face several risks, the policies normally come with multiple coverages that are packaged together.

What Businesses in Vermont Should Have Dog Day Care Insurance?

The majority of Massachusetts businesses that take care of pets can likely benefit from the protections afforded by doggy day care insurance. This includes both businesses that watch pets for just a few hours (or less), and those that board pets for several days or weeks at a time.

Additionally, “dog day care insurance” shouldn’t be assumed to only apply to businesses that watch dogs. Businesses that watch animals of any type might want this kind of policy.

Some specific examples of business that generally should consider purchasing dog day care insurance are:

  • Dog day care centers
  • Pet boarding centers
  • Pet sitters
  • Dog walkers
  • Pet transportation companies

Veterinarians that offer boarding services likely also need the protections found in a dog day care policy. These protections alone, however, likely won’t be sufficient for a veterinarian. A broader policy that offers dog day care protections alongside other protections is probably necessary in this situation.

What Protections Are Available Through Pet Care Policies?

As mentioned, pet care policies usually come with at least a few protections. Some of the protections that policies may make available include:

  • General Liability Coverage, which might cover basic, and slander, libel and false advertising lawsuits
  • Professional Liability Coverage, which might cover work errors that business owners or employees make
  • Business Property Coverage, which might cover buildings, other facilities and equipment that a business has
  • Tenants Improvement Coverage, which might cover changes that a business makes to its leased space
  • Animal Bailee Coverage, which might cover pets while they’re in a business care
  • Business Income Coverage, which might cover prolonged revenue losses that follow certain disasters

There are still other coverages that pet care policies may provide. For a thorough explanation of the many available coverages, businesses should speak with an insurance agent who’s familiar with the details of these policies.

Do Pet Care Policies Offer Commercial Auto Insurance?

Businesses that use vehicles regularly normally need to carry commercial auto insurance, and there are two main types of commercial auto insurance. Standard commercial auto insurance usually covers company-owned vehicles, such as cars or vans, that a business may own. Hired and non-owned auto insurance typically covers liability risks that come with employees driving their personal cars (or other cars which a business doesn’t own).

Pet care businesses that need either form of commercial auto insurance can normally add the necessary coverage to their insurance policy without issue. An insurance agent can help with this process.
