Veterinary Office Insurance

As a veterinarian, you no doubt take your responsibility to animals and pet owners seriously. You have worked long and hard to become qualified to take care of people's animals—whether they are working farm animals or family pets. Just as doctors who take care of people do, you need to have insurance to cover your practice against the many things that could go wrong.

Veterinary Office Insurance Features

If you are a veterinary business office owner, your veterinary insurance starts with insuring your building and equipment for fire, natural disasters, theft and general liability.

Veterinarians, however, need more than just protection for their commercial office space. Just as with human medicine, a good veterinary insurance policy has malpractice insurance in case events go awry in veterinary medicine. Busy staff can have accidents or make mistakes. An animal may suffer an unforeseen issue you cannot prevent. Still, you may be held responsible in a court of law. Malpractice insurance can cover your business if anyone in your practice makes a mistake.

One area of concern for veterinarians is the "consent to settle" option in some policies. This means the veterinarian must give approval in writing to settle a case even if the insurance company recommends settling. In some cases, policies will not cover expenses incurred from a lost lawsuit if the insurer recommended settling and you refused, which is called a "hammer clause."

Sometimes business problems occur outside of legal matters in which an accident or a mistake transpires that can open you to liability. For example, a pet could be injured by putting it in an open area with another animal. An honest mistake like this could expose your company to liability.

Call Insurance Shoppe for a full explanation of all your options as a veterinarian. Different policies are available, and we offer policies for those who work only on small animals; for those who only work in the equine field; and for offices or for field work, respectively. Our professionals can help you find the best policy for you, so give us a call today and let us make sure you're covered.

Testimonials

I have to say thank you to Amanda and her team at the Insurance Shoppe. You have been an incredible help with our coverage needs. What has impressed me most was how you reached out to me directly, without being prompted, to discuss a solution to help improve our insurance coverage and lower our premiums. I have never had anyone reach out like that to lower the amount they collected. The work you did has helped us save $2,000/year on our insurance from what we already thought was a fair, and low, payment. I’m telling all my friends and family to at least discuss their insurance needs with you and the team at the Insurance Shoppe because I know they will be as impressed as I have been. Thank you again for the excellent service. Looking forward to a long lasting partnership.

Three years ago I switched all of my personal insurance to The Insurance Shoppe, including homeowners, cars, boats and camper. Aimee was able to reduce my monthly premiums while still maintaining the same coverage. Their customer service has always been top-notch. I would highly recommend the Insurance Shoppe for your insurance needs. - Judy Kirking

I was amazed at the ease with which the Insurance Shoppe was able to take over my business lines of insurance. They thoroughly review the policies to ensure that we had the right coverage in place and save the company money in the process. They always respond quickly to requests for certificates of insurance and answer any questions I have about coverage promptly. I would recommend them to any business owner that needs a responsive, trustworthy, and cost effective solution for their insurance needs! - Loni Knepper, President, Background Source Intl.

I have been a loyal State Farm customer most of my adult life. I've entrusted our cars, homes and toys to State Farm for many years. After meeting the folks at The Insurance Shoppe, I found that I could get equal or better coverage through their carriers, usually for less money. One at a time, I continue to cancel policies with State Farm and sign up with The Insurance Shoppe. The coverage and premiums are great but the people are even greater. I'm never made to feel like just another customer. Thanks for the great service. - Tom Pray, Sierra Security
