​Pet Insurance for Illness Cover

Pet Insurance with Illness Cover in Australia

Taking the time to think about pet insurance with illness cover, how it could be beneficial, and why it’s necessary for your pets, is very important. As much as we try to bury these thoughts, our pets are just like us – from time to time they suffer from health issues and need medical attention.

At Petplan, we meet a lot of pet owners who all agree with us in saying that pet insurance for illness is a necessity. Our vast number of insurance policies mean that we’re able to find the perfect plan for every pet without breaking the bank. 

What Does Petplan’s Pet Insurance for Illness Cover?

Our pet insurance plans vary from pet to pet. We understand that every pet is different in one way or another and as such, we make a point of adapting our plans to work around the pet (rather than the other way around).
For this reason, pinpointing what your exact coverage would be prior to a consultation is difficult. We have to take into account:
  • The type of pet you have (e.g. cat, dog, horse, etc.)
  • Existing health conditions
  • Your pet’s age
You can see a more detailed breakdown of our plans on our policies page, but remember that the final quote will vary.

Naturally, you might be wondering what makes Petplan different. Here’s what you need to know:
  • Should any health issues arise, we will quickly get to work to ensure that the vet bills are paid, and your pet receives the best care
  • We only offer pet insurance policies, no other insurances such as car, home, health or life insurances
  • Unexpected vet bills won’t put you in a financial black hole. Our affordable pet insurance means that your pet gets the treatment they need, and you can pay your coverage at a reasonable rate
  • Unlike other pet insurance companies in Australia, Petplan offers a specialised set of policies for horse pet insurance
If that’s not enough, we’ve also been received awards on several occasions. Our most recent award is the “Outstanding Value (5 Stars) for Accident & Illness Pet Insurance” award that was awarded to us by Canstar in 2015.
