What your dog is covered for

Accidental Injury

This is cover for those unexpected injuries. These are physical injuries such as a broken bone, an insect bite or wounds caused by an accident.

Illness Cover

Illness cover includes treatment for an unexpected issue which requires a trip to the Vet. This includes some of the more common dog health issues that aren't a pre-exisiting condition.

Routine Care

With Comprehensive cover, you'll also be able to claim up to $100 annually for certain routine treatments like vaccinations, teeth cleaning and desexing.
