Exotic pet insurance for tortoises and turtles

Do you own a tortoise or turtle? Or are you looking to buy one?

Even though your tortoise or turtle is currently healthy, things can change, and vet bills can quickly add up in the event of an injury or illness. In the event of an injury or illness vet bills are often unexpected and an unpleasant surprise.

Why do I need tortoise/turtle insurance?

You may think you don’t need insurance for your tortoise/turtle and that it’s a waste of money, or you may think that it’s a lengthy process to get a quote and a hassle to complete all the documentation (which can be if you choose the wrong insurance company).
