Medibank Pet Insurance partners with Bondi Vet's Dr Chris Brown

Dr Chris Brown, from TV's Bondi Vet, is the new face of Medibank Pet Insurance.

Dr Chris says, "For most people, life is almost impossibly busy. Many of us just don't have time to worry about things we can't control. But it is possible to get just a little control over the financial side of owning a best friend. There's no doubt that pet insurance saves lives."

As practising vet and proud owner of pets Rusty the kelpie and cat-with-nine-lives George, Dr Chris is keen to get this message out there, saying, "By partnering with Australia's most trusted name in health insurance, I know people will know we're serious. So I'm excited about partnering with Medibank to make sure people know this potential lifeline exists."

Group Executive - Private Health Insurance, Laz Cotsios, said "It's really important to have a product set that meets the needs of our customers and gives us the opportunity to deepen our relationships. Medibank's extended product range is a really important part of our strategy and it's fantastic to have Dr Chris as our ambassador to help us grow this market."

Life - and your pets - is unpredictable, so from as little as $3 a week, Medibank Pet Insurance provides peace of mind that your best mate is well cared for. With a visit to the vet setting you back anywhere from an average of $244 for an ear infection or $2,178 for cataracts, the security of knowing that they are in safe hands is priceless. As Dr Chris says, pet insurance really is "best care for your best mate."
