Vets Choice insurance for pets  |  the sensible choice for protecting your dog or cat

When it comes to protecting your pet, there’s no need to look past Vets Choice. As the only insurer endorsed by the Australian Veterinary Association, you can be sure that every aspect of our coverage has been developed with direct input from the Veterinary profession. This input not only means we’ve taken into consideration the common things vets treat to offer cover your pet deserves, but also means we have an insider understanding of how pet insurance operates inside a veterinary practice.

Not only can you benefit from an insurance policy that's been built by vets, you will also benefit from an insurer that understands that the flexibility to customise your policy to your unique situation is more than just a luxury. With excess options, different levels of cover, and a number of optional benefits, you can be sure your policy is tailored for your pet.

Not only that, we work to ensure the welfare of not only animals, but the vets that provide the care they all desperately need, with every policy contributing to local shelters and the Vets Benevolent Fund. This means, when you chose to protect your pet with us, you’re also helping the wider pet community too.

Dog insurance

Your dog isn’t just a pet, they’re a part of the family. And as a part of the family, the last thing we want is for you to be faced with a large vet bill for emergency care that you can’t afford, a situation that sadly happens too often in vet clinics. Our range of policies are designed to help you make the best financial decision to protect your pet for all their adventures and misadventures. View our Vets Choice dog insurance policy →

Cat insurance

When you bring a cat into your home, you’re gifted with a furry companion who quickly becomes part of the family. However, even keeping your cat indoors doesn’t eliminate potential accidents or illnesses that could need emergency care. If this were to happen, the last thing you want is added financial pressure. We offer flexible and affordable options, to protect your cat today. View our Vets Choice cat insurance policy →

Why get pet insurance?

There’s a lot of similarities between the treatment’s pets receive to us humans. The same machines, medications and even the same treatments are performed. However, unlike human medicine, there’s no Medicare for pets. Which means without pet insurance, pet owners will be facing the full cost of emergency treatments and care. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to help more Australian pets become protected by insurance, to ensure they get the care they need when accidents happen.

 

A new approach to pre-existing conditions

Traditionally, pre-existing conditions have been excluded in pet insurance policies, leaving thousands of Australian pets exposed. At Vets Choice insurance for pets, we’re doing things a bit differently. After consulting and working directly with Australian vets and the Australian Veterinary Association, we’ve built a policy that covers conditions that have been successfully treated, if they reoccur.
