A guide to Pet Insurance: Take care of your whole fur-mily

By  AAMI

Australia has one of the highest rates of pet ownership in the world, with over 60% of Australians owning a pet. Yep that’s right, we love our furry friends, but we also end up spending nearly $13,000 over their lifetime just to care for them. Pet Insurance can help to manage the rising costs associated with your fur-mily member’s vet visits and ensure your little mate is covered for accidents, injuries and illness.  

AAMI, together with petinsurance.com.au, is proud to bring you cover to help make sure that your feline and canine companions are well taken care of. 

Dog Insurance for pups and up

The first few months are busy in the life of a puppy, they’re exploring the world, learning the rules and maybe even getting into a little bit of trouble. Puppy Insurance  can cover them from the time they are eight weeks old up until six months. Depending on the plan you choose, this includes accident cover only or accident and illness and covers up to 80% of eligible vet fees. 

For dogs six months and older^, consider their lifestyle before choosing which cover suits you (and them) best. They can be covered for both accidental injury and illness or just accidental injury. Dog Insurance can alleviate the stress of the unexpected.

Cat Insurance for your feline friends

Our feline friends bring so much joy and humour to our lives, it seems like a no-brainer to have them covered in case something happens during their (nine) lives. Depending on whether your cat solely enjoys the indoors, or maybe they like to explore the world a little more, from eight weeks on*, your kitty has the option of three different kinds of cover: Accident Injury and Illness, Accidental Injury, and Indoor Cat Cover.

Not every cat’s lifestyle is the same – that’s part of what makes them so great! While some are a little more adventurous than others, only you can make that judgment on what’s best for them. Each Cat Insurance policy covers a range of vet services to ensure your kitty is taken care of in those, at times, unpredictable scenarios. 

Optional extras for all

Once you’ve decided on the right cover for your fur friend, you might also want to add Routine Care as an optional extra. Routine Care can cover some of the more regular expenses that come with pet parenting and can take the pressure off your yearly vet bill. These choices can range from desexing to microchipping and even include obedience training for those who need a little help along the way. For more information about Routine Care, read the Product Disclosure Statement.

Your fur-baby means the world to you. And what matters to you, matters to us. That’s why we strive to give you the best possible cover available. Find more info on Pet Insurance, or get a quote online now:
