    What is pet insurance?

    Like human health insurance, pet insurance covers the cost of medical care. Pet insurance is designed to cover unexpected costs, so it may not pay for routine care or conditions your pet had before you bought the policy.

    What type of pet insurance should I get?

    There are three main types of pet insurance plans:

    Accident and illness: The most common type of pet insurance, these plans cover treatment for illnesses and accidental injuries.

    Accident-only: These plans tend to be more affordable. They’ll pay if your pet swallows a toy or is hit by a car, but not for any illnesses such as diabetes or arthritis.

    Wellness or preventive care: This type of coverage is usually an add-on to one of the policies above. It’ll pay for well visits, vaccines and other routine care.
