LOOK: You Can Now Get Insurance for Your Pets

Did you know that owning a dog in the Philippines roughly costs PhP12,000 to PhP50,000 a year? This means providing the right essentials like food, regular check-ups with your vet, and grooming, but also preparing for contingencies.

But whether you’re an experienced pet parent or a newly christened one, taking care of another living being can take a big chunk out of your finances. As a responsible pet owner, you need to plan ahead for what your fur baby might need because the commitment to look after them is long-term.

But fret not—in a time where one can avail of services with just a tap or a click, you can also keep your pet (and your finances) ready for whatever happens so you have one less thing to worry about.

Planning Ahead

Founded by pet parents with a similar dilemma, Life By Petto is the first app-based, pet health plan service that provides affordable subscriptions to support health and wellness services from partner veterinarians, clinics, and hospitals within Metro Manila.

Life by Petto aims to provide preventive and quality care for your pets, especially since there is a gap in the local market for pet health and wellness services—despite the massive increase in pet owners in recent years.


Covering the Basics

For only P1,200 a month, you can get Life by Petto’s basic health plan that covers your pet’s primary health and wellness needs including diagnostics, vaccines, common illnesses, and accidents—services that most pets and their owners would greatly benefit from.

Want more customized coverage? My Petto Plan Add-ons also let owners top up their basic plan to cover additional services including minor to major surgeries like dental or spay/neuter services, cancer treatment, hospitalization, and other non-common illnesses.

Life by Petto accepts cats and dogs from three months onwards, no matter the breed (yes, aspins and puspins included!), and as long as they’re in good health upon registration.

Through the app, you can customize the plan you want for your fur babies (and yes you can get multi-pet plans!), manage your balance, check available vet clinics, and file claims whenever and wherever you are.
