What is Pet Insurance?

What doesn’t Pet Insurance cover?

Pet Insurance Policies don’t usually cover things like pre-existing conditions – that’s problems that your pet had during the waiting period and before you took out this policy, which can also include anything you previously claimed for under another policy. You probably also won’t be covered for desexing, dental care, and injuries or illnesses that come about because of neglectful pet ownership.

What is Dog Insurance?

Dog Insurance is Pet Insurance for your canine friend. As of 2022, about 17% of Australian dog owners had insured their pooches to help cover the cost of an unexpected vet trip.1Animal Medicines Australia – Pets in Australia: A national survey of pets and people, p47 (If you’ve had a labrador, for instance, you might be familiar with how often that can happen since they see everything as food.)

What is Cat Insurance?

Cat Insurance is Pet Insurance for felines, whether they think they’re the boss of the house or not. Just like Dog Insurance, it aims to help reduce the financial stress of any emergencies or unexpected trips to the vet when your cat is injured or ill.

Where can you find and compare Pet Insurance Policies?

Pets are part of the family, so when they’re sick or injured, we want them feeling better as soon as possible. Unfortunately, vet bills and medical treatment costs can add up, especially if surgical or hospital care is needed. So, Pet Insurance could mean there’s one less thing to worry about when your furry friend is going through the wars. That’s why iSelect has partnered with Choosi to help you find and compare a selection of Pet Insurance Policies from different providers quickly and conveniently.*
