Ensure their best start in life with insurance for puppies & kittens

Many Australian pet owners get pet health insurance as soon as their puppies and kittens reach the age of 6 weeks, because pre-existing conditions are not covered by pet insurance plans.

Insuring your pet while they are young offers greater financial protection in case of serious health conditions. Most importantly, pet insurance provides peace of mind, preventing the development of uncovered pre-existing conditions.
While we don’t want to think about our pets being hurt or becoming ill, what if they do?

Puppy and kitten insurance is there for when the unexpected happens.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there age limits for starting a pet insurance policy for puppies and kittens?

With Knose Pet 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 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. 

Knose Pet Insurance provides coverage for puppies and kittens residing with you in Australia. 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, puppies and kittens 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.

It’s common for puppies and kittnes 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.
