Dog & Cat Pet insurance in Canada

Most insurance plans will not insure pets 10 years of age or older, nor will they insure pre-existing conditions in a pet. The best time to think about investing in a pet insurance plan for your pet is when you first bring home a new furry companion.

Pets Niagara does not necessarily endorse any of the following insurance plans. Please visit the links provided and read all information associated with each plan carefully before deciding whether one will be beneficial to your family. Determine if the plan requires you to pay the veterinarian costs up front and then submit a claim to the insurer, or if the insurer will pay the claim directly to your veterinarian. Also, ask your veterinarian for more information about insurance plans and which ones they accept before making your final decision.
