Progressive offers boat accident insurance for pets

Progressive is now offering free pet injury coverage on boaters' dogs and cats.

If a boater's dog or cat is hurt in a boat accident, the company will pay the veterinary bills up to $1,000, Progressive said.

The coverage is free for those with comprehensive and collision coverage. It covers only dogs and cats if they're on a boat and injured in an incident such as a crash, theft, fire or flooding.

"Our new pet injury coverage for boaters gives them peace of mind their pets are protected if they get injured in an accident on the water," said Rick Stern, Progressive boat product manager, in a statement.
