Pet Insurance for Illness Cover New Zealand

Protect Your Pet with Pet Cover for Illness

Cats are by far New Zealand’s favourite pet, with an estimated 44% of homes having at least one. Dogs come in second place with 28% of homes having a furry friend. In terms of sheer numbers though, fish are the most populous! 10% of homes in New Zealand have fish, but each of those homes has an average of nine, meaning there are millions across New Zealand.
These pets – just like ourselves – are prone to a host of illnesses and diseases. Depending upon the severity of the illness that they contract, this can cost thousands of dollars to remedy, and the veterinary bills can quickly pile up. Our pets are part of our family, and no person should have to worry about making those payments.
This is why countless people across New Zealand (and the wider world!) choose to insure their pets against illness with Petplan. 

Petplan: The Leaders in Pet Insurance

Petplan began in 1976 in the UK and in the decades since we have grown to become one of the most popular and trusted pet insurance providers worldwide. Our journey around the world began in 2004 when Doug and Gwen Ford secured naming rights to the business and created Petplan in Australia and New Zealand. Before securing these rights, the Fords were – and continue to be – heavily involved in the pet industry as a whole with a specific focus on the dog showing community.
Our products and level of service have set the bar in terms of what’s expected in the world of pet insurance. Here is why we are the natural choice for illness insurance for pets:
