For pet therapists, educating pet owners and treating animals who can cause harm to themselves and others comes with responsibilities and expectations of their service. Whether you provide physical rehabilitation, emotional therapy or both, your pet therapy business faces several risks that could lead to injury, property damage and possibly litigation. Insurance coverages for pet therapy businesses can help protect you from being overwhelmed by the costs to defend a lawsuit, pay for medical expenses and/or repair damaged property.
Typical Risks Faced by Pet Training Businesses
Treating aggressive pet behaviour, anxiety, depression and injuries or illnesses with therapies such as massage, vibration, colour therapy, etc., leaves you exposed to several business liability risk scenarios including:
- A pet you are rehabbing following a broken leg reaggravates the injury during a hydrotherapy session.
- A dog undergoing therapy for aggression attacks a visitor to your property.
- A client ignores your recommendations for changes at home that are needed for their pet’s care and then claims that your therapy doesn’t work and threatens legal action.
The last example is a reminder that you could be sued even if you’ve done nothing wrong. Pet therapist business insurance can protect you from actual liability and frivolous lawsuits, giving you the resources you need to protect your practice.
