Pet Insurance
Pet insurance pays for part or the full cost of vet bills for your dog or cat (or horse, bird or any other pet) if they get sick or injured. There are different levels of cover. Comparing pet insurance will allow you to choose the correct cover for your pet.

  • Accident Only policies will cover the cost to visit a vet after accidental harm or injury such as car accidents, scratches from fighting with other animals, or snake bites.
  • Accident and Illness policies cover accidents plus the cost of seeing a vet for illnesses such as cancer, infection, hereditary conditions, and more.
  • Comprehensive policies should include all of the above plus cover for the cost of routine care treatments such as vaccinations, worming treatments, de-sexing, dental care, and behavioural training. Some policies will even pay you if your pet should die or be lost or stolen.
