The Paws Behind the Story: Mie and Her Dynamic Dachshund Sisters

Hi! My name is Mie, and one of my favorite animals is the doggy. Since many years, I have had a strong desire for a dog.

I eventually got my first tiny cute black and tan dachshund named Piko about two and a half years ago. We welcomed our second furkid, Pie, the blue and tan dachshund, four months later since one wasn’t enough.

Q: What motivated you to get pet insurance and why Aon Happy Tails? 

Pet insurance can provide us with peace of mind, superior care, and the ability to plan for unexpected health difficulties. Dachshunds, on the other hand, are prone to IVDD difficulties and appear frail and vulnerable. Another reason for us to get pet insurance is the high expense of pet medical care in Singapore. We want to offer our Piko and Pie the finest care possible without having to worry about the cost of expensive medical procedures, surgery, or hospitalization, if necessary.

What I chose Aon Happy Tails? The explanation is simple: the price is reasonable depending on the package you choose and the coverage is superior when compared to other players.

Q: Can you share your journey/experience with Aon thus far?

I have been using Aon Happy Tails since Piko and Pie were 6 months old. The application was straightforward, simple, and uncomplicated. In addition, the annual renewal is on a GIRO basis. My furkids are still young and do not require surgery or other treatments like the elderly dog. So, insuring my furkids with pet insurance will save me money in the long run because health problems may arise only when they are quite old.

Q: Do you agree that having pet insurance has provided you with peace of mind regarding your pet’s health and well-being? 

Definitely agree. If something were to happen to my furkids, I would be able to offer them with the greatest and most urgent medical care in good pet hospital.

Q:  How important do you think pet insurance is for pet owners, and why?

It is very important. My furkids are a crucial part of my family. Singapore has extraordinarily high veterinary treatment costs. Pet insurance covers a portion of the medical costs, which means that I am financially prepared; I don’t have to worry about money, and I can provide quality care to my furkids right away without financial constraints.

Q: What advice would you give to someone who is considering purchasing pet insurance for their pet?

My advice is to get pet insurance for your furbabies as young as possible, especially if they have no pre-existing medical conditions. If you wait until there is a problem with your furkids, you will have to pay a premium if you opt to buy at that time. There are numerous insurance packages available, depending on your level of confidence in managing your own finances. So, choose the best pet insurance for your needs. And my thought is if a dollar a day can provide me peace of mind while also protecting my furkids, it’s a genuine WIN-WIN situation for us. 

And there you have it, our tale of furry friendship, responsible pet parenting, and the valuable role that pet insurance plays in ensuring our beloved companions receive the care they deserve. Piko and Pie have not only enriched our lives with their unique personalities but have also highlighted the importance of being prepared for any unexpected twists on their health journey.

So, if you’re considering safeguarding your furkid’s future, remember, that a little planning today can pave the way for a worry-free tomorrow.
