Does Your Insurance Sufficiently Cover Your Pet Care Business’ Growing Risks?

Owning and operating a pet care business presents unique challenges. While you face the same risks as other small businesses like a cyber breach or natural disasters, you may also find yourself in situations that are highly specific to your industry. From kennel cough spreading throughout your operation, to a dog being injured during grooming, potential risks and liabilities are growing due in part to the pandemic-related pet adoption surge.

What would happen to your pet business if it were faced with a situation like these?*

At the Groomers

During a routine dog grooming appointment, one of the groomers accidentally cut Rusty’s nails too short, resulting in an infection and an expensive vet visit. The pet groomer’s professional liability insurance helped to pay for the client’s urgent care expenses.

Doggy Daycare Dropoff

While on his way to drop off his German Shephard at Happy Dawgs pet daycare, Owen slipped and fell on a patch of ice outside the front door of the business. Owen was injured and sued Happy Dawgs for damages. The pet daycare business had general liability insurance, which covered settlement amounts and attorney’s fees.

Fire Alarm

When a fire burned down her pet boutique, Amy was at risk of losing months of revenue while still having to meet payroll obligations. Her business interruption policy was able to help her pay herself and her employees until the store was rebuilt and up and running again.

Kennel Cough

Molly received a call on vacation that her Sheepadoodle had come down with kennel cough at the pet boarding facility. Luckily, the business had insurance that covered Molly’s veterinarian expenses and costs for cleaning of the facility.

Whether you’re a dog trainer, a pet sitter, or a pet food company, now is the time to evaluate your insurance to make sure you have sufficient coverage.
