What does Dog Insurance cover?
Dog Insurance offers cover for 80% of eligible vet costs associated with your best mate’s accidental injuries, and for costs associated with illness. You’ll also have cover for emergency boarding, and access to optional cover for routines such as tick control and obedience training.
What's not covered?
These are just a few examples. For more detail and a full list of exclusions, see page 29 of the PDS.
What does Pet Insurance cost?
For most pets you can get coverage from $1* a day. The exact cost can vary depending on factors like your pet’s breed and age.
Your out-of-pocket costs for covered vet visits, once your policy has commenced and any waiting periods are over, will be 20% of the total bill, as you’re entitled to an 80% benefit up to your annual limit.
So if, for example, you visit the vet to treat an injury and it costs you $250, you’ll receive $200 back of eligible claims (your 80% benefit) and only be required to pay $50.

Pet Insurance for older dogs
You can take out an Accidental Injury policy for your dog at any age. However, if your dog is older than nine years, you can’t take out an Accidental Injury & Illness policy, or reactivate one if it’s lapsed. If you’ve had your policy since before the dog was nine, it will remain covered.
Customers who take out a new policy will receive a discount equal to 2 months free premium for the first year of cover. This equates to a 16.67% discount from the standard monthly premium spread over the course of the first year. The discount is included in the quoted price and does not apply upon renewal.
