M O N T H L Y I N F O G R A P H I C – Fun, informative flyers for pet lovers 

Dogs get a lot of attention, but over 31 million households’ own cats according to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).
Did you know that owning cats can help with pet related allergies, keep your house or barn pest free, often cost less than dogs and they fit into apartment living nicely? Not only that, but cats are also intelligent, loyal, great companions, and super photogenic.

The My Pet Protection® suite of products offered by Nationwide Pet Insurance have an “Additional Benefit” of $500 to board your pet if you or a family member is hospitalized. While health is on the forefront of everyone’s mind these days, it is another added peace of mind feature of Nationwide Pet Insurance.


Teladoc, Ringadoc, PlushCare, MeMD…the list of telehealth providers continues to grow. Not only does it allow patients and doctors to manage their time better, it also helps keep the cost of medicine down. Why then, according to Employee Benefits Adviser, have only 8% of employees at most companies signed up for telehealth options?

Share virtual options with employees or encourage them to ask their medical providers if they offer it. Make it relatable to their lives and give real world examples. Also share success stories and highlight the convenience. Especially since COVID-19, virtual or limited contact services are available with many vendors. The lasting impacts of hygiene concerns may be the boost virtual health needed.

The My Pet Protection® with wellness plan offers reimbursement for microchipping your pet. The insertion, registration, and renewal fees are all covered if done by a licensed veterinarian.

You always want to make sure your pet has a collar and ID tags. But for added protection if your pet is lost, a microchip is a safe and trusted method to bring your pet home again.

Benefit Bit: More than just pet insurance, topics for benefit experts.

Employees like being home because they are able to be home for the repair man, get a load of laundry started, and skip the commute. Employers have found productivity hasn’t suffered and, in many cases, has increased. The challenge for employers becomes adding perks when you aren’t able to gather for a meal, snack or in person gathering. You still want to help the employee feel connected and show that you care for their household needs. You guessed it – pet insurance is a great benefit to offer and easy to tie into fun discussion points like cutest pet photo contests or a great ice breaker.

Don’t take my word for it: CNBC says 43% of full-time American employees hope to stay home:
