Pet insurance is extremely important when it comes to the health and safety of our pets. The cost of vet treatment has risen much faster than inflation for decades, especially when we consider:

  • One in four dogs will contract cancer and one in five will get osteoarthritis
  • Snake bites can cost up to $10,000 to treat
  • Fractures can cost up to $13,000 to fix
  • Gastrointestinal problems can cost up to $14,000 to treat
  • A simple dental clean under anaesthesia can cost up to $400
