Pet insurance for your dog
Dog insurance reimburses you for some of the costs when you take your dog to the vet. After your dog is treated, you can make a claim for the cost of the vet bill and get back a percentage of what you paid. When you combine the cunning drive for adventure that most dogs have with the high standard of animal care in New Zealand, it’s easy to see how dog insurance might just become your second-best friend. In fact, over 90% of Kiwis say the main reason for owning a dog is to add an extra member to their family.1
According to the latest data, less than 20% of dog owners in New Zealand have pet insurance, which is often because they’re not aware of the value it offers.2 However, at least 75% of dog owners take their companion to the vet once a year or more, which means they’re paying for these costs out-of-pocket and missing out on the benefit of pet insurance.
