This strengthens the already market-leading pet insurer’s standing to become the largest specialist pet insurer in New Zealand to date.

Petcover Group Founder and Managing Director Doug Ford says, “With our extended range of pet insurance, which already includes our Superior Plans with our Umbrella for Life cover, we now offer Kiwi pet owners the opportunity to access the necessity of pet insurance for their beloved companions with a range of options, whatever their budget.”

The mid-range and safety net cover offers some of the following benefits*:

Veterinary fee cover.

Third party liability cover.

Excess and co-payment options.

In addition, all Petcover New Zealand pet insurance for dogs, cats and horses includes the following to give pet owners peace of mind and the assurance that their pets are protected:

A team of specialist pet experts, dedicated to offering full cover without any limitations for pre-existing cover whenever possible.

Three month reviewed policy exclusions, with an intention to remove completely, something other providers do not offer.
