Dog insurance, also known as pet insurance, helps you cover the cost of an unexpected trip to the vet. It can give you peace of mind when your four-legged friend is sick or injured, and reduce some of the financial strain.

Cat insurance, also known as Pet Insurance, helps reduce the financial stress of any emergencies or unexpected trips to the vet when your cat is injured or ill. You’ll usually need to pay the bill upfront, then your provider can reimburse you.
