Why our customers picked Woolworths Pet Insurance with VetAssist

"I was really so impressed. Through the video chat, I could show the vet my dog and she talked me through how to check for certain things. It gave me great piece of mind overnight until I had to take my dog to the vet the next day. I would highly recommend VetAssist!

Dianne, NSW

"Dr Claire was amazing, so informative and very easy to use the video chat. It was so good to be able to speak with a vet from the comfort of your own home and not causing any more stress to our pet. I would highly recommend VetAssist to any new pet owner, especially owners with small puppies."
