Pet insurance

We tend to think of our pets as members of our family. It’s natural that we’d want to give them the best medical care available, but vet bills can be very expensive! Pet insurance can help you afford the medical care your pet needs if they’re involved in an accident or become ill. Depending on your level of cover, you can claim up to 85% of eligible vet bills by up to $20,000 per year (pre-existing conditions are excluded, sub-limits, and annual condition limits may apply).

    Why have pet insurance?

    As our animals age, just like us, medical care becomes more likely and complicated. For example, an average claim is $2,131.42 for a snake bite, $1,950.66 for diabetes, and $1,859.31 for cataracts (based on 2018–2019 PetSure claims statistics). Pet insurance could be the answer if you worry about being able to afford the treatment your dog or cat may need.

    Everything you need to know

    It’s important for you to select a level of cover that suits your needs and those of your pet. As inclusions and exclusions vary between policies, it’s best to do your homework. We assist you with everything you need to know: from what pet insurance is, what pet insurance covers, eligibility, and the types of cover available that Choosi can arrange for you.

    The right cover for your pet

    The right pet insurance for your pet will depend not only on the type of policy you choose, but also on the breed, age, and medical history of your dog or cat. You may decide you only want to cover your pet for accidents or extend that cover to illness too. Choosi only offers pet insurance from a range of brands that cover both accidental injuries and illness.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

View all FAQs 

Pet insurance works by helping to cover a portion of the cost of an eligible vet treatment for dogs and cats, by reimbursing that cost to you once you make a successful claim. Some brands offer accident-only cover for pets of all ages. However, with Choosi, you can apply for both accidental injury and illness cover for pets up to younger than 9 years old and up to younger than 16 years old for some policies. Depending on the policy you choose, you can claim up to 85% of eligible vet bills, up to $20,000 per year.*
In addition to accidental injuries and illnesses, some policies also include a benefit for emergency boarding, essential euthanasia, pet overseas travel insurance, and paralysis ticks, at no extra cost. Some polices even include cover for dental illness once you’ve held cover for two years. You’ll need to check the product details of the policy you wish to purchase to find out what’s covered under your preferred plan, by reading the relevant Policy Booklet.
Choosi compares pet insurance plans with and without an applicable excess. For any plans with an excess, you’ll receive a reimbursement of up to 85% of your eligible vet bills less the applicable excess.*
At some point, your pet may need to see a vet for treatment of either an injury from an accident or an illness, and vet bills can be very expensive. Having pet insurance can help reduce the burden of these bills, so you can afford to give your pet the treatment that they need.
Pet insurance will cover most breeds of cats and dogs.
