VETiCare Pet Health Insurance

A pet owner can now insure the health of their pet cat or dog older than 8 weeks and younger than 8 years that is kept as a household pet in the RSA. The pet owner fills in a VETiCare application form directly from the Veticare website or at his/her chosen Veterinarian and signs up for VETiCare Cover(The Wellness™ is an optional added policy benefit). The application form is then sent for underwriting (see application form) and upon acceptance of the conditions of cover and if the pet is accepted for the programme, the VETiCare pet is fully covered for any veterinary medical procedures/services (including accident cover) within the said vet’s practice; but, so too, the policy is applicable for emergencies at any 24 Hr / after hour emergency Vet facility and or Specialist Centre for that matter - each clinical situation being unique.

Insurance premiums will then be collected monthly via direct debit. (Terms and Conditions apply, please refer to policy wording in the application form and the underwriting agreements). View or download the appropriate application form/s below:
