Cats and dogs need healthcare too.
Pets are part of the family, but unlike the rest of us, they don’t get free hospital care or ACC.
That’s why more and more Kiwis are choosing to get pet insurance. Vet bills can easily cost thousands of dollars, which many of us simply can’t afford. That’s when pet insurance comes to the rescue.
Pet insurance can save you from financial stress or needing to make a tough call, and ensure your pet gets the treatment they need.
Why pet insurance matters
Did you know that you’re more likely to claim on your pet insurance than your car or home policy?
Unfortunately, pets are just as susceptible to illness and injury as we are – in fact, 80% of the claims Southern Cross Pet Insurance pays out are for illness, rather than accident. Our pet insurance can help you to ensure your cat or dog gets the best care possible at the time when it’s needed the most.
