Why Pet Insurance?

Pet Insurance gives you the peace of mind that you’ll  be able to cover eligible vet bills in   the event of unexpected illness or injury to your pet.

Why is that important?

While you may be able to budget for the ongoing day to day expenses of keeping your pet healthy (such as vaccinations, flea and worm treatments and regular check-ups), an unforeseen health emergency can quickly mount up to thousands of dollars in vet bills that can be more difficult to cover.

Pet Insurance gives you the reassurance of being able to provide the best treatment when things don’t go according to plan.
