Insurance

Hi all!

I have little yorkshire terrier, I'm worring that something might happen. I found some information about insurance for pets. Does somebody use it? Does it works good???

Thanks!

Re: Insurance

One site I know is: http://www.haustier-versicherung.ch/

Did you mean liability insurance ?

Re: Insurance

Katerina, you probably already know this but just in case...

As you are in ZH, you are required under the HuV (the cantonal dog law) to carry liability insurance of at least 1 million. This applies to all dog owners in the canton, not just owners of List I and List II dogs. If asked, you must produce proof that you have this insurance.

A summary of the ZH HuV:

http://www.tierimrecht.org/de/tiersc...ht/zuerich.php

Dog owner liability coverage is usually part of your general Privathaftpflicht policy; if you have questions, check with your agent. Dog owner's liability coverage is generally not too expensive - my policy covering us up to 5 million a year is under a CHF 100 for my three dogs.

As for medical insurance - some find it very helpful, for others it may not be so useful. Much depends on the specifics of the policy. Be sure you understand exclusions and age limits, and per-condition coverage.


ETA:

Another insurance you may want to look into is damage to your flat caused by your dog. This isn't always automatically assumed by your Privathafpflicht poicy - again, check with your insurer. Adequate coverage could save you an expensive moving-out bill.

Re: Insurance

I have my dog insured for illness and injury with a company called Epona. Of course we have the dog insured under our insurance for liability if he was to cause an accident etc.but I think you meant against massive vets bills?!

Epona
Assurance Des Animaux
Tierversicherung
Avenue de Bethusy 54
Case Postal 162 1000 Lausanne 12

021 654 3125

I hope this helps.
