Pet Insurance

Your pets are part of the family. Help them get the right care to live long and healthy lives by having insurance coverage that helps with the high cost of veterinary care. Health insurance isn't just for humans!

When a pet medical emergency strikes, just how financially prepared are you? Nationwide provides pet insurance policies that can help you plan for your pet's healthcare by offsetting costs for unexpected illnesses, procedures or injuries. Pet insurance can also empower you to not have to choose between your financial stability and your pet's wellbeing. 

McClatchy has partnered with Nationwide to offer pet insurance to all employees. It's easy to sign up, see below for where to go.
