Caring for your pets

Caring for your pet isn’t just about exercise and diet, it’s also about ensuring they are well looked after in times of need.

Medibank Pet Insurance

Think of Medibank Pet Insurance like health cover for your pet, much like your own human health insurance. Advances in veterinary medicine mean more can be done for your pet’s health than ever before.

Cats and dogs can now receive ultrasound and x-rays, diagnostic and laboratory tests, arthritis treatment, major surgery, and even cancer treatment – just like people.

Pet insurance helps pet owners feel better knowing their pet receives the health care they deserve without compromise so you can afford trips to the vet when you need them most.

Getting a pet

Making the decision to become a pet owner is an exciting time. No doubt you’re already imagining all the fun you’re going to have with your new family member and the joy your cute companion is going to bring to your life.
