Nationwide Unveils New Avian and Exotic Pet Insurance Plan


BREA, Calif., Jan. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Fifteen percent of U.S. pet owners have a bird or exotic animal as a pet, such as a rabbit, reptile or amphibian. Just as with dogs and cats, exotic pets such as parrots, rabbits, water dragons, turtles, hedgehogs and even potbellied pigs require veterinary care that can sometimes put a strain on their owners' finances.

Nationwide, the first and largest provider of pet health insurance in the U.S., announced today its new avian and exotic pet health insurance plan, designed specifically for the veterinary care of these pets.

"Many households include parrots, frogs, even potbellied pigs as family members. And like dogs, cats and ourselves, they need care, too," said Nationwide's Chief Pet Officer Heidi Sirota. "So Nationwide has designed a comprehensive health plan for the unique needs of these pets, the only avian and exotic plan available in the U.S."

Nationwide's avian and exotic pet insurance coverage reimburses up to 90 percent of eligible veterinary expenses. These expenses are inclusive of the most common medical conditions for these species as well as an option for reimbursement for preventive care.

More information about this new plan, including a list of pets and conditions covered, can be found at www.EveryPetInsurance.com.
