We all hope it never happens but it is a sad fact of pet ownership that you may one day require treatment. Treatment for many common problems can often run into hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Pet insurance provides peace of mind, that if your pet did require it, the funds would be available to help them.


  • A broken leg can cost between $1000 – $4000
  • Spinal surgery can cost between $1200 – $5000
  • An intestinal blockage can cost between $1000 – $2500

In addition to covering surgery fees many pet insurance companies also cover medical treatment this could be for conditions such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Heart condition
  • Skin conditions
  • Diabetes

These conditions can be managed medically, however, this can be expensive for example medication for a skin condition can cost $3 – $5 daily due to this we recommend getting a pet insurance policy that covers your pet for life of that condition.

Pet insurance is specific to each and every pet so it is best to do some research and don’t forget to read the small print.
