Ruchika Malhan Varma, Chief Marketing Officer, Future Generali India Insurance says (FGII) said “As a brand that is a lifetime partner for our customers, we are constantly engaged in providing solutions to suit their evolving lifestyle needs. For a dog parent and increasing number of households, a dog is much more than a pet today, and is, in fact an integral part of the family. So, while we go all out to protect our loved ones by purchasing comprehensive health insurance solutions, our customers indeed must feel the same for their pet dogs.
She further adds, “Dogs have a tendency to land themselves into unexpected situations that may warrant a huge dent into one’s savings to cover costs for hospitalisation, surgeries and other terminal illness. Our FG Dog Health Cover is designed to cover all this and more towards ensuring that our pet parents can focus on getting the best healthcare for their pet dogs without leaving a dent in their pocket”.
With FG Dog Health Cover, pet parents will be able to choose their veterinarian, budget their pet care costs, and avoid the dip into emergency funds. Availing this cover comes with easy documentation.
