Thanks to recent advances in vet science, dogs in Australia now have access to superior diagnostics and treatments. However, these options often come with a hefty price tag.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I consider dog insurance?

It’s common for dogs to require veterinary attention at some point in their lives, and the severity and cost of such care can be unpredictable. Our dog insurance is designed to provide extensive coverage for unexpected injuries and illnesses your dog may face. We offer extensive plans for dog insurance, catering to dogs 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.

Certain dog breeds are considered dangerous or banned in Australia, and we don’t provide coverage for such breeds. If your dog’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, 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, search and rescue dogs, guide dogs, assistance dogs, or customs sniffer dogs.

At Knose, we are dedicated to providing straightforward and accessible dog insurance. Our goal is to keep dog insurance simple and flexible to suit your unique needs. You can choose from various Annual Limits of $7,500, $12,500, or $25,000, and Benefit Percentages of 70%, 80%, or 90%. Additionally, we offer three Annual Excess options, namely $200, $100, or $0. With Knose, you won’t encounter any sub-limits, ensuring extensive coverage for your furry companions without unnecessary complications.

With our Dog Insurance, you get the advantage of Lifetime Cover, which means there are no age limits once you have insurance. 

However, there are specific age criteria for starting the dog insurance policy. When purchasing a new Policy, the minimum age for entry is 6 weeks old and the maximum age for entry is 8 years and 364 days old.
