What’s the difference between health insurance and a healthcare plan?

A healthcare plan is very different to health insurance. Pet insurance is there to pay if your pet gets sick or is injured. Our healthcare plan is a simple way to pay for the regular care your pet needs each year in one easy monthly payment.

What is pet health insurance?

Pet health insurance helps to cover the cost of veterinary care if your pet becomes ill or injured. It doesn’t typically cover regular care such as neutering, vaccinations and health checks. There are different insurance policies available to pet owners, and you’ll need to do your research to find the best option for you and your pet. Learn more about pet insurance.

What is a pet healthcare plan?

A healthcare plan is a convenient way to give your pet the everyday care they need each year to stay happy and healthy. We offer a number of different options tailored to different pet types and ages. That means you’ll get all the advice, support, and treatment your pet needs to live its best life. Our plans typically provide full vaccination courses, complete flea, worm and tick protection for the year, regular nose to tail health checks, microchipping, neutering and more.
