Advancements in veterinary medicine means as a vet we can do more for your pet - but treatment can often be expensive. Pet insurance allows you to budget monthly, rather than face unexpected bills that you might not be able to afford when your pet needs it most.

At the Maraboon Vet Surgery, we have recently partnered with Pet Plan Insurance, the world's largest pet insurance company, to recommend their pet insurance to our clients. We are now able to offer a no obligation free trial through Pet Plan Insurance. This offer is valid for puppies and kittens from 8 weeks of age and before their 1st birthday. The insurance cover is valid for a period of 4 weeks from the date and time the policy is activated, with an opportunity to continue the insurance cover once the 4 weeks is up. Pet Plan will cover for injury/accident immediately and cover for illness will start 72 hours after the cover is activated. Terms and conditions apply.

If you are interested in signing up your new puppy or kitten to Pet Plan insurance, call the Maraboon Vet Surgery and book an appointment with one of our vets.

GapOnlyTM Payments

In the past owners had to pay the full amount for their pets treatments on the day of service, then make a manual claim themselves or online claim through their vet for the rebate to be later deposited to their accounts, this is not the case anymore.

GapOnlyTM has partnered with multiple Pet Insurance providers to offer an amazing Gap Only payment option for insured pet owners. Insured pet owners are able to choose from three different options:

  1. Pre-approval for planned treatments and procedures.
  2. Pre-discharge: ask your vet to process the claim before you arrive to take your pet home after treatment and procedures.
  3. On the spot: your vet can lodge your claim and have it approved within 10 minutes.

After approval your claim, you are only required to pay the remaining gap of your vet bill. The process takes approximately 10 minutes and doesn’t require any paperwork! Allowing you to focus on your pets’ health and not worry about finances at the end of their treatment.
