Cat Insurance Claims
If you are considering behavioural therapy for your cat, and you have pet insurance, it's a good idea to check with your insurance provider to determine whether Dr Ledger's services are covered by your plan. Many pet insurers will cover Dr Ledger's fees, in full or in part, when your claim is eligible.
