Why get pet insurance?

You’re covered for the unexpected

For example, imagine your pet dog has been vomiting for 24 hours. The vet conducts an abdominal ultrasound revealing a small foreign body in the intestines.

An exploratory laparotomy is then undertaken to remove the foreign body requiring an overnight hospital stay. This process can cost upwards of $4,000 but thanks to RACQ Pet Insurance, your expenses are reduced†.
