Full Mortality & Theft Insurance

A type of insurance for your valuable exotic animals that is similar to a term life policy on a person.  The Full Mortality policy insures against financial loss due to the death of an insured animal that is caused by or necessitated by both natural and accidental causes. Proven Theft coverage is also included.  The animal is insured while in the Continental U.S. and Canada.

To qualify, your animals must be physically sound and in good health.  A current veterinary certificate of health is usually required. Some age and value restrictions may apply.

Limited Mortality Insurance

A type of Mortality Insurance policy that will protect you against financial loss upon the death of your insured exotic animals due to specified perils.  Commonly insured perils include:

Basic Perils

  • Fire & Lightening or smoke resulting there from;
  • Collision, derailment or overturn of certain conveyances while in transit, including loading and unloading;
  • Collapse of bridges and culverts;
  • Earthquake and / or floods;
  • Windstorm, cyclone, tornado, hail;
  • Explosion; and
  • Aircraft and Objects falling there from.

Additional/Optional Perils

  • Accidental Shooting (except by the Insured or employees of the Insured);
  • Drowning;
  • Artificial Electricity;
  • Attack by dogs or wild animals;
  • Collapse of building; and
  • Theft (death of animal need not be a factor)

Animals that may not qualify for Full Mortality can often be insured under this type of insurance.
Short-term Animal Air & Ground Transit Insurance is available.

Friday Funny! Hats off to a great weekend.

We highly recommend teaching regular safety training at your stable. One emergency people don't think enough about is how they would free a horse that got a tied lead, cross tie or other type of rope wrapped about the horse's neck, head or halter. There are other situations like this that can happen to other parts of a horse's body - with horses anything can happen and it is good to be prepared --- kinda like knowing where your fire extinguisher is, if it is functional and how to use it.

With a rope emergency, using a knife with a point in an emergency near the neck or head of a panicking horse is not the best idea, and we've found that neither smooth nor serrated blades work fast enough. We just ordered the product attached to this post. Have a look at the video. Let us know if you have used one. We plan to test it on different thicknesses, plies, and types of webbing, rope and leather as in the video and will report on this again soon.
