Pet Insurance

  • Get $25 a year toward an annual vaccination or health check
  • Three levels of cover to choose from
  • Accident and illness cover

Your pets are part of your family and if they get sick or are injured it could cost you thousands. Of course you want to look after them, but you don’t want to break the bank doing it. With Countdown's Pet Insurance, the furry members of your family can get the care they need.

Pet Insurance is the easy way to insure your cats and dogs for accidents, illness (one-off and chronic), surgery and qualifying inherited conditions. Plus you get $25 a year toward an annual health check or vaccination. All plans have a 25% co-payment, which means we cover 75% of the costs up to the benefit limits and you pay the additional 25%. You will not pay an excess fee.

Policies start from $1 a day* and there are three levels of cover available – Basic, Standard and Comprehensive. Choose the one that suits you.

If you decide it’s not for you, let us know within 14 days and we’ll give you a full refund (as long as you haven’t made any claims in that time).
