Etiqa's newest pet insurance offering provides the highest coverage for surgical sum locally insured.SINGAPORE - Media OutReach Newswire - 31 January 2024 - Etiqa Insurance Singapore, a prominent provider of both general and life insurance, today launched a new pet insurance policy designed to support pet owners in safeguarding their cherished furry companions, providing an unprecedented level of protection against unforeseen circumstances.
The burgeoning trend of pet ownership has witnessed a remarkable increase, with Singapore's dog population risen 3 per cent from 2019 to reach 114,000 pet dogs in 2023, while the pet cat population experienced a substantial 10 per cent surge to 94,000 in the same year.

This comprehensive plan offers vital coverage encompassing accidental and illness-related medical expenses, congenital and hereditary conditions, alongside no-claim discounts, providing pet owners with protection in times of unexpected medical circumstances.

The evolving perspective towards pets in Singapore, coupled with escalating pet care costs, necessitates adequate coverage to ensure financial stability and peace of mind during challenging times. Etiqa Insurance Singapore bridges this gap by offering accessible coverage at an affordable price point, enabling Singaporeans to cherish longer, healthier lives with their beloved pets," said Raymond Ong, CEO of Etiqa Insurance Singapore.
