WHAT IS VetProtect?

The VetProtect Total Care Scheme is a unique way to budget for the cost of your pet’s medical care. It is a complete healthcare plan:
  • Covering all the routine veterinary treatments essential to maintain your pet in the best of health (see below).

  • Insuring against any unexpected medical or surgical treatment.
By having regular check-ups and using the most effective preventative treatments, you’ll help your pet stay healthy. VetProtect not only covers the cost of this routine care, but if your pet should become ill or injured, VetProtect will pay for all the care your pet needs (subject to the policy excess).
