Pet Insurance

What is Pet Insurance?

It’s simple – when your pet gets sick or injured, PD Insurance helps pay the vet bill!

And, unlike some other insurers, we also offer cover for pet care costs when they’re well.
Things like vaccinations, desexing, microchipping, boarding fees and more.

We understand being a pet parent is one of life's greatest delights. Like all great things, it tugs at the heartstrings and can bring as many concerns as it does joys. Especially when it comes to your fur baby's health.

That's why pet insurance is crucial. And it doesn't have to be complicated or expensive.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is pet insurance?

At some point in your cat’s or dog’s life they are going to need veterinary treatment. And as most pet owners know, vet bills can be very expensive, in some cases costing thousands of dollars. A PD Insurance pet cover plan can help you have peace of mind in affording appropriate care for your pets when they need it most.

Via our third party liability cover we can also protect against damage caused by your pet/s to other people’s property or person. And our Wellness Benefits Package covers certain treatments for your pet even when they’re healthy, such as de-dexing, vaccinations, boarding fees and more.

Does pet insurance cover accidents?

Yes – after all, accidents happen. Especially when you have an unpredictable animal on your hands!


Rest assured each of the PD Insurance pet cover plans includes accident cover. This means our pet insurance covers the cost of treating your beloved pet for injuries sustained in an accident (up to your annual limit). This includes things like choking, being hit by a car and other unforeseeable incidents. 

What is an illness?

An illness means an unexpected sickness or disease, or any change to your pet’s normal healthy state. This could be an upset stomach, a skin condition or an ear infection, or another sickness/disease that’s not caused by an accidental injury.

At PD Insurance these benefits are covered by our Wellness Benefits Package that you can choose to add to the Classic or Deluxe Plans. This is not available for the Emergency Plan.
