With the increase in pet ownership as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, 75% of the workforce now have a pet at home. However, only 2% of those pets have any type of health insurance. Why is the rate of adoption of pet insurance so low? Why should more pet owners be interested in buying health insurance?

This week on the Veterinary Innovation Podcast, Shawn and Ivan sit down with Aaron Oaks, the CEO of United Pet Care, to talk about health benefits, why consumers aren’t adopting pet insurance, and why he believes pet insurance will become a standard employment benefit within the next three to five years.

Mr. Oaks recommends Pet Nation: The Love Affair That Changed America by Mark L. Cushing and The Lean Startup: How Today’s Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses by Eric Reis.
