( Pet parents know the cost of having four-legged family members. There's the daily vitamins, monthly sack of quality kibble, and annual vaccines. And if you tend to spoil your furkids, you also spend on fancy toys, expensive beds, and cute pet outfits. Just goes to show how much you care for these loyal companions. And if you're keen on looking out for them, Malayan Insurance Co., Inc. now offers Pet Care Insurance for pet dogs.


Coverage includes reimbursement for any treatment or confinement at the vet in the event of an accident or disease. It also has a liability coverage feature for when the insured dog causes damage outside the owner's home or bites another person. (Those anti-rabies shots for humans cost a lot!) There's also a personal accident feature (a.k.a. monetary compensation) for instances of "accidental death, disablement, and dismemberment."
