Cebuana lhuillier, one of the Philippines’ leading and largest micro-financial service providers and a champion in financial inclusivity and mobility, recently launched its new insurance product designed specifically for dogs.
The Philippines is one of the countries with the highest dog populations in the world with 11.6 million as of 2020 and the highest rate of pet ownership among SEA countries at 83%, lead by dogs at 67%. In the course of the pandemic, Filipinos’ interest in owning pets has increased to 88% compared to 2019. With the continuous growth of the pet industry, a big chunk of this is limited to grooming, nutrition, and the like. With limited options for pet healthcare, pet owners are constantly challenged financially in order to provide for the medical needs of their fur babies.
With this reason in mind, Cebuana Lhuillier’s Pet Insurance Basic was developed. a microinsurance product especially made for pets to help dog-owners ease the burden of dealing with large veterinary bills for check-ups, procedures, and medical emergencies.
“Dogs have always been loyal life companions, so it’s only right that we take care of them, especially during their health emergencies. With responsible pet ownership in mind, Cebuana Lhuillier is proud to introduce a product that’s both accessible and affordable for many of our kababayans who would like to provide their pet dogs with the best care possible, regardless of breed. This highlights our company’s commitment in providing the most relevant and reasonably-priced financial products that respond according to their needs,” – Cebuana Lhuillier and CEO, Jean Henri Lhuillier said.
Cebuana Lhuillier’s Pet Insurance Basic provides reimbursement from any veterinary treatment or confinement in a vet hospital in the event of an accident or disease, as well as burial assistance. It also offers liability coverage features for when the insured dog causes damage outside the owner’s home.

|Owner’s Personal Accident||10,000||23,000|
Aside from that, owners are also insured for personal accidents for up to Php 10,000 for Pet Insurance Basic and Php 25,000 for the Pet Insurance Prime. Get all these insurance benefits and features for one-year coverage for as low as Php 1,000.00 or Php 3.00/day.
“Being a responsible pet owner is a commitment to provide for their needs and it consists of more than simply feeding and playing with them. Part of responsible pet ownership is addressing their physical, social, emotional, and mental well-being for the remainder of the pet’s life. Our pet insurance aims to cover the risk that is involved in owning dogs, not just to protect them but to protect pet owners as well.” Jonathan Batangan, First Vice President and Group Head Cebuana Lhuillier Insurance Brokers, Inc. added
