Family Members Deserve Protection

Sky & Rowdy:
My puppy Rowdy was about 10 weeks old when he got into my bathroom bin and ate everything. I called the vet and they told me to bring him in straight away. Sadly, there was nothing they could do so they told me to contact the local animal hospital. I took him straight there and for over 5 hours they made him vomit to try and bring up the stuff in his belly. They ended up getting most of the contents out (and a little more!). Turns out he had also eaten a caterpillar, a bobby pin and my loofa. The whole ordeal cost around $2,000 and because we didn’t have pet insurance we had to dip into our savings. We really regret not getting insurance sooner - it was foolish to think we wouldn't need it.
Nathan & Perry:
Our Bull Arab, Perry, managed to get his leather collar off and chewed it up, swallowing a 10cm length of it that blocked his stomach. We noticed he wasn't eating properly and seemed to be in pain so we took him to our local vet. X-rays were taken, and the collar was discovered as it had studs in it. It was too big to pass naturally so Perry had to have surgery, which was done the next day. If it hadn't been for our pet insurance it would have cost us $4,500! Luckily it only cost us a nominal excess and we had our boy back to his normal boisterous self in no time.
Angie & Pickle:
One day I collected Pickle from doggy day-care and noticed he was licking his very swollen and red paw. It was clear we needed to head to the local vet before they closed so he could receive the best possible care - and because we were insured, there was no stress about the costs. Thankfully we quickly made it to the vet, who identified his bee sting, treated him promptly and ensured I knew what to expect for Pickle’s at-home care for the next few days.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is paying month-to-month different to paying annually?

Paying month-to-month is the ultimate in payment flexibility, which is why PD Insurance offers customers this option. We don’t think you should be tied to a yearly contract if your budget or other circumstances don’t allow for it.

Month-to-month pet insurance works just like a monthly subscription (similar to a video streaming subscription) with no lock-in contracts. This means that you can pay for your pet insurance each month instead of paying an annual premium over 12 months. Month-to-month cover renews each month when you pay your premium. And you can cancel at any time without penalties. 

You receive all the same privileges as you would if you paid annually. Just remember, the applicable stand down periods still apply if you choose to pay month-to-month.

Does pet insurance cover vet costs?

The cost of vet bills can easily be thousands of dollars, and can run into tens of thousands. Seriously.

What’s more is that it’s not unusual for some pets to need to go to the vet several times a year.

Our pet insurance plans cover the cost of veterinary expenses incurred as a result of accidental injury and illness. Our optional Wellness Benefits package also covers de-sexing, microchipping, boarding fees and much more.

Let us take the worry out of your hands. Compare the PD Insurance pet cover plans today (dog insurance or cat insurance).

Does pet insurance cover accidents?

Yes – after all, accidents happen. Especially when you have an unpredictable animal on your hands!

Rest assured each of the PD Insurance pet cover plans includes accident cover. This means our pet insurance covers the cost of treating your beloved pet for injuries sustained in an accident. This includes things like choking, being hit by a car and other unforeseeable incidents. 

Does pet insurance cover hereditary pet issues?

PD Insurance covers hereditary conditions under our Classic and Deluxe pet insurance plans, as long as the condition was not present prior to commencing your cover or during any applicable stand down period(s).

Compare our PD Insurance pet cover plans today (dog insurance or cat insurance).

What is covered under third party liability?

Third party liability refers to the financial loss you may suffer if your pet causes damage to other people or their property. After all, pets can be unpredictable.

With PD Insurance, you can rest assured that you’re covered by your pet insurance as long as:

-The injury was not suffered by a family member residing with you

-The property is not owned by you or anyone residing with you (or in a trust held by you or someone residing with you)

-The damage or injury occurs in Australia
