Dogs are one of the best blessings humans can ever ask for. Being greeted with an excited, tail-wagging, tongue-sticking-out pupper is the ultimate mood booster and stress reliever on a busy day. As the saying goes, we don’t deserve dogs for always being there for us. Where we see them as an additional companion, to them we are their world.
However, with a great love for fur babies, comes great responsibility. Whether you are a long-time or new fur parent, you would know it takes a large amount of upkeep to care for your four-legged friends. Raising dogs can be challenging as they require a lot of love, attention, and physical care.
Being a good fur parent is more than just giving baths; it also entails taking them to proper groomers. It is more than providing basic care of food and water, but also ensuring they get the proper nutrients. It is more than deworming and anti-rabies vaccines, but also giving extra supplements and check-ups with the vet when necessary.
As the world opens up and gets back on its feet, people and dogs alike are getting more exposure to the outdoors, which increases health and safety risks. Fortunately, GCash, everyone’s go-to app for payments and financial services, is making moves to support pet owners in showing their love for their dogs by offering affordable, convenient, and comprehensive pet insurance.
“We want to emphasize pet insurance as part of essential pet care to give dog parents a sense of security in cases of unfortunate events. GCash (through GInsure) makes pet insurance more accessible, convenient and affordable, so pet owners can give their fur babies the best protection and care,” said Winsley Royce Bangit, GCash Chief Customer Officer.
