Pet insurance


Veterinary medicine continues to become more and more advanced, a fact that can cause optimal care to quickly become expensive. In order to more readily provide the best possible care for your pets, we strongly recommend that owners consider purchasing pet insurance for their animals.

While pet insurance can be a real benefit to you and your pets, it is important to remember that it works a little differently than people health insurance. The company usually requires the owner to pay for care at the time of service with reimbursement made to the owner later, after records are submitted. Prior to enrolling your pet in a new program, most companies will require you to provide copies of your pet’s medical records. We will be happy to assist you in getting the records required.

There are many pet insurance companies available, with new ones constantly being created. The American Animal Hospital Association offers a pet health care payment guide for deciding if pet insurance is right for you, and the following are two non-biased online references to help you sort through the differences between pet insurance companies


The following is a list of several of the larger pet insurance companies that you may want to check out:

Animal Hospital by the Sea rocks! Jean is a fabulous veterinarian, the environment is warm and relaxing and there is great communication between Jean and her staff. We are all so very happy to have found them!

Dr. Dieden’s surgical technique allowed our dog a quick and trouble free spay recovery without the stress and discomfort of an Elizabethan collar (head cone).  We are very grateful to Dr. Dieden and staff who assisted with Rena’s surgery.

Meshuggeneh was the most relaxed cat during her visit to Dr.Jean that I think she would have stayed longer. Thank you both Holly and Dr. Jean for your time and help. Best find in Langley... a great vet!

Thank you Dr Jean Dieden for taking such good care of my labrador, Kinsey. Kinsey had a raging hot spot. Thanks to Dr Dieden’s caring and effective treatment, Kinsey is much more comfortable and on the mend.

It doesn’t get any better than this animal hospital for care for your pet.  Jean Dieden and her team of Holly and Stacy are top notch and they are genuinely caring.  I also like the fact that this is a animal hospital and part of that terminology means they do their own blood work.

Dr. Jean held my hand throughout it all and, had it not been for her professional intuition about a prescription Lena was given during emergency treatment, my little girl would not be the happy, healthy kitty she is today. As for how my other cat Dexter feels about Dr. Jean, you can see for yourself around this website.
