You’ve already got your marriage insurance, your drunk insurance and your Coca-Cola-issued smog insurance, so it really shouldn’t be a surprise that you will now have the opportunity to buy an insurance policy for your pet.
People’s Insurance Company of China, one of the largest insurers in the country, has launched China’s first pet insurance program. The policy, which covers all breeds of cats and dogs (sorry turtles, you’re SOL), will provide coverage for pet medical care worth between 5,000 to 500,000 yuan a year. The insurers expect their service to be used in over 500 veterinary hospitals and 5,000 pet shops nationwide.
With the popularity of pet dating show Fei Chong Wu Rao, anyone looking to make a quick kuai should invest in pet marriage insurance immediately.
