Pet Health Insurance Basics

Pet insurance with Petsecure is like having health benefits for your pet. It's a unique way to ensure that whenever you need to, you can provide your pet with the very best of care.

Why would you choose to insure your pet?

As pet parents, we believe we can protect our pets from harm. Yet, if you think about it, no matter how much love and care we provide, accidents and illness are still beyond our control.

Removes financial concerns in crucial times

Being a pet parent is very rewarding; however, it also comes with responsibility and commitment. Even in tough financial times, investing in pet health insurance is a great way to keep your pet's health and your finances on track. Even more important, Petsecure give you the confidence of knowing that when you need to, you can provide your pet with the very best veterinary treatment and care - you're prepared for the unexpected.

Access the best care for your pet

Each year, there are tremendous advances in veterinary treatment. However, the cost of providing the very best care can be high. While there's no public health system in Canada for pets, with Petsecure, you always know your pets will have access to excellent medical care if they suddenly become sick, develop a serious medical condition, or suffer any injuries.

What is typically covered?


Accident Coverage

If your dog gets hit by a car, your cat gets in a scrap with a feline stray or your new puppy falls off the couch and lands the wrong way, Petsecure pet insurance is there to make sure they're...All taken care of. Accidents happen and with our coverage limits renewing per accident for the life of your pet, you will always have coverage you can count on.

Illness Coverage

When you choose illness coverage, if your pet gets an ear infection, your dog suffers from hip dysplasia or your cat develops diabetes, we cover it! No matter what type or level of coverage you choose, your Petsecure benefits automatically renew annually to make sure that year after year your pet is covered.

Test and Medication Coverage

With accident and illness coverage, if your furry friend has an accident or becomes ill and needs a trip to the veterinarian, it's covered. Chances are they may also need diagnostic testing, medications and maybe even hospitalization. This includes: x-rays, MRIs, CAT scans and even prescriptions. If so, Petsecure Secure For Life™ plans cover it all! There's no fine print excluding part of your veterinary visit.
