Australia’s Best Pet Insurance

Pets are more than simple additions to our family; they are integral parts of the intimate connection that makes our house a home. That is why at Petplan we want to provide the best pet insurance in the country for your special pet. Whether you're looking for cat insurance, dog insurance or even horse insurance. Unfortunately, veterinary bills can stop many people from getting a fur ball for their family, and in many cases, when families can’t afford the bills for their pet – they end up resorting to drastic measures.

By insuring your pet with Petplan, you are covering the cost of what could be upwards of thousands of dollars of unexpected vet bills. You will be able to seek veterinary care for your beloved pet without worrying about incurring costs you can’t afford. At Petplan, we are committed to keeping our clients’ pets healthy and their owners happy.

The Petplan Story

Our story begins way back in 1976 in the United Kingdom, and we are now the biggest and most experienced pet insurance company in the world. In 2004, Doug and Gwen Ford bought the naming rights and began setting up Petplan in Australia and New Zealand. Both of them are extremely involved in the dog showing community and this, along with their undying love for pets, made them the perfect match to get Petplan Australasia up and running.
