Frequently Asked Questions

What is pet insurance and why should I consider it for my pet?

It’s common for cats and dogs to require veterinary attention at some point in their lives, and the severity and cost of such care can be unpredictable. Our pet insurance is designed to provide extensive coverage for unexpected injuries and illnesses your pet may face. Knose Pet Insurance offers extensive plans that encompass dog insurance and cat insurance, catering to pets living with you in Australia. We prioritise your pet’s well-being and don’t impose sub-limits, ensuring they have access to veterinary treatment whenever they need it most.

Learn more about Knose Pet Insurance.

We focus exclusively on dogs and cats, so it’s important to note that we do not cover any other type of animals. Additionally, certain breeds are considered dangerous or banned in Australia, and we don’t provide coverage for such breeds. If your pet’s breed falls under this category after purchasing or renewing the policy, they will no longer be eligible, and we will send you a notice of non-renewal before the expiration of your current Period of Insurance.

Moreover, cats and dogs engaged in commercial or sporting activities, such as breeding, working, fighting, racing, personal protection, gun sports, law enforcement, or guarding, are not eligible for coverage. However, there are exceptions, and we do provide cover for pets engaged in specific activities like show dogs/cats, search and rescue dogs, guide dogs, assistance dogs, or customs sniffer dogs.

Knose Pet Insurance offers comprehensive coverage and a range of benefits to protect your beloved dog or cat.

Our policies cover veterinary costs for injuries and illnesses, providing financial support when your pet needs medical attention the most. Additionally, our coverage includes essential euthanasia costs, and veterinary expenses for overseas trips of up to sixty (60) days in New Zealand or Norfolk Island. We also offer optional extra benefits, such as coverage for Dental Illness, Behavioural Conditions, and Specialised Therapies. 

With a Knose Pet Insurance policy, you also get free 24/7 access to Pet Health Hotline Online, where you can receive expert advice and guidance on your pet’s health, behaviour, training, and nutrition concerns.

Please refer to the relevant sections of the Product Disclosure Statement and Policy Wording and Your Certificate of Insurance for full benefit details and applicable terms, limitations, conditions, exclusions and definitions.
