Pet Care Insurance: Protecting Your Niche Business

You’re a pet care pro–specialization comes with the territory. And whether a vet, groomer, or boarder, niche business is your middle name. What you do meets a real need for folks in your area–they can’t take Fluffy to their PCP, salon, or local daycare. That kind of specialized service is valuable, and that’s why you’re concerned with giving value back to clients, every day.

At (IFPC) we know exactly where you’re coming from. Much like the pet care industry, the insurance world is more and more focused on individual needs–we’re moving far beyond boxes. But why is this so vital to success?

Because knowledge is a powerful protectant. Think of the advice, treatment, or product recommendations you give your clients–they’re all based on a honed skill set and deep knowledge. Specialized insurance advice is just the same. But how can you choose between the companies and agents vying for attention?

  1. Look for knowledge. Agents should have a deep understanding of the pet care industry and be able to anticipate problem areas. That level of know-how can save you, especially in the beginning stages of your business experience.
  2. Look for protection. Policies should feature built-in protection against all those unpredictable ‘bad dog’ scenarios. And the common “coinsurance clause” can leave you stranded if you don’t have the right policy limits. Look for a company that gets your everyday risks and works with you to make your business safer.
  3. Look for service. When you need them, your insurance team should be in touch, ASAP. Better still, they should have a proven track record of service and expertise that they put to work for you.
  4. Look for experience. Your job isn’t a hobby, and this isn’t just about loving pets–you’re looking to thrive as an entrepreneur in a fast and furious industry. Look for a company that has been there and can offer first-hand advice that goes beyond pet care insurance.

At IFPC it’s important to us that you and all our clients know that we aren’t just insurance experts–we’re pet care experts too. Our advice isn’t coming from the sidelines. Instead, we’re right in the game with you, and we see how it’s played.

Backed by the pet care gurus at Central Insurance–a company that’s been supporting customers for well over a century–IFPC is rooted in stability. Integrity, relationships, and excellence are always our top priorities.

But we also understand the unique business risks you face day in and out. The wonderful world of professional pet care brings them like no other. And at IFPC we work to protect you from the possible, likely, and inevitable. We’re confident in this claim because of our years of experience. At the same time, we aren’t too proud to learn new things–we continually take the initiative to learn and improve. Add to that our partnership with independent agency Zinc Insurance and you have the ideal skill set: insurance, entrepreneurship, and pet care.

Everything you’ll need is right here, from the knowledge in our minds to the concern in our hearts. But don’t take our word for it–ask some questions, get some answers, and learn how to make our expertise work for you.
