What is pet insurance?

Pet insurance covers eligible vet bills and treatment costs in the event of your pet being unexpectedly ill or injured.

Does it cover day to day expenses?

Pet insurance is designed for unexpected bills, so it doesn’t typically include predictable expenses such as flea and tick treatments and vaccinations that can be budgeted for.

What are the different types of insurance?

Accident only policies cover a specified range of accidents, such as broken bones or motor vehicle incidents. Combined Accident and Illness policies, also cover sickness, which can range from short term infections to major surgery.

Modern vet treatments offer excellent recovery rates for your pet, but costs can quickly run into thousands of dollars. Depending on which policy you choose, pet insurance can help cover a portion of those eligible Vet expenses.

How much does it cost?

Your pet insurance premium is calculated using a few details such as where you live, your age and the breed and age of your pet. Premiums can be paid fortnightly, monthly or annually, with the cost going up each year as your pet gets older and has more health needs.

If you’re unsure what is covered in your Pet Insurance policy, you can always consult your PDS or speak to our friendly Woolworths Pet Insurance team during our operating hours.
