A hospital for the purpose of treating animals. In large cities in Korea, there are many treatments focused on dogs and cats. This is because dogs and cats account for a large portion of the companion animal market.
In small cities or townships/myeons, there are veterinary hospitals operated under the name of 'livestock hospitals' as hospitals that deal with industrial animals such as cows, horses, and pigs.
It is not easy to find a hospital that handles small mammals such as hedgehogs, hamsters, squirrels, sugar gliders, and meerkats. This also applies to reptiles and amphibians such as lizards, turtles, and birds to which parrots and chicks belong.
Most animals, except for dogs and cats, are recommended to go to a specialized animal hospital.

In Korea, where the burden of medical expenses is low due to the National Health Insurance, the cost of veterinary hospital treatment can feel more expensive. This is because animals are not covered by state-funded medical insurance. Since value-added tax is also applied to veterinary hospital treatment fees, all pet owners who have been to the hospital will agree with the story of expensive medical expenses.
In order to be able to stay with your beloved companion animal for a long time in good health, it seems that you need to take measures to relieve the burden of medical expenses that can suddenly come.
The most realistic way to save on medical expenses is to sign up for companion animal insurance (pet insurance).
Depending on the insurance plan, pet insurance that can guarantee up to 70% of medical expenses has appeared a lot these days.
However, until now, companion animal insurance has been activated only for dogs and cats, so it is really disappointing that special animals cannot be covered by insurance.
In the case of pet insurance, the age of subscription is set at around 6 to 8 years old. The older you get, the more likely you are to inevitably have big and small problems with your health. Therefore, it is recommended that you sign up for pet insurance at the right time even for a healthy old age.
When choosing pet insurance for your companion animal, you must first check carefully whether it is of an acceptable age, whether there are conditions when visiting a hospital, and what the range of injuries and diseases that can be covered is.
In some pet insurances, there is also coverage for medical expenses that you have to bear when your pet bites or injures someone else or someone else's pet, that is, liability for compensation, so if you need it, it would be nice to check it out.
This is one of the things you should consider when purchasing pet insurance. Even if you purchase pet insurance, it is very likely that the following items will not be covered. Therefore, it is recommended that you keep this in mind when purchasing insurance.
Please note that not all policies cover all of the items below. If any of the items below are absolutely necessary, please check them more closely and choose the right pet insurance.
