See what pet parents say about Fetch dog insurance

We’re proud of our 'Excellent' Trustpilot rating and love hearing about how Fetch has positively impacted our community.

If your vet recommends it, Fetch probably covers it

With Fetch, your pup can see any vet in the U.S. or Canada. Like most other dog insurance plans, Fetch does not cover pre-existing conditions. That's why it's helpful to get coverage as soon as you can. Getting Fetch means peace of mind, all in one simple dog insurance plan.

Vet bill costs are based on U.S. dogs' annual policy terms between 1.1.2021 - 12.31.2022, where the dogs are 2+ years of age. Fetch pays back is based on a policy configuration of an unlimited max annual payout, an annual deductible of $500 where the deductible has been met and a reimbursement rate of 90%.

Sick-visit exam fees

Every sick visit comes with an exam fee, which can be around $50 – $250. We cover those exam fees for you. Not all providers do.

Breed-specific issues

Not all providers cover medical conditions linked to breed, like breathing problems in French Bulldogs or kidney stones in Burmese.
We do.

Boarding fees

We care about pet parents, too. Fetch covers the cost to board your pet at a licensed facility when you’re hospitalized for 4 days or more. You’re covered up to $1,000 per year.

Advertising & reward

If your pet goes missing, we want to help. Fetch covers the cost of advertising that your pet is lost and paying a reasonable reward for finding them. Your plan includes coverage up to $1,000 per year.

Name-brand prescription medications & supplements

We cover medicines like antibiotics and insulin, as well as natural supplements like vitamins and herbal therapies, when they’re recommended by a vet to treat a new injury or illness.

Your dog insurance questions – answered!

What is dog insurance coverage?

If your pet gets sick or hurt, dog insurance coverage reimburses you. Fetch dog insurance offers the most comprehensive coverage in the U.S. and Canada and pays you back up to 90%, making your vet bills more affordable. With Fetch, you won’t have to choose between your wallet and your best friend, and it’s easy to give your dog the care they need to live their longest, healthiest, happiest life.

Why do I need a dog insurance plan?

Every 6 seconds, a pet parent is faced with a vet bill of more than $1,000. That doesn’t even take into account the rising cost of inflation, or the fact that veterinary medicine is getting better – and more expensive. Fetch dog insurance plans give you protection from these increasing costs and peace of mind that’s priceless. From allergies to name-brand prescriptions to a cracked tooth, Fetch can offer coverage for a wide range of injuries and illnesses. As a pet parent with Fetch, you’ll be able to give your dog the care they need – without worrying about the full cost of vet bills.

When should I get dog insurance coverage?

The sooner you enroll, the sooner your dog’s covered. Fetch covers dogs and cats 6 months and older, but to make sure your pup gets as much dog insurance coverage as possible, it's best to sign up before they need it. Like most other dog insurance providers, Fetch doesn’t cover pre-existing conditions – which is why we recommend signing up as early as possible. Insuring your dog before health issues develop is recommended, so you and your best friend can live your best lives together.

What’s not covered?

Like most other dog insurance providers, we don’t cover pre-existing conditions. These are medical conditions that first occurred, or your dog showed clinical signs of, either before the effective date of your Fetch policy or during the waiting period of up to 15 days. The good news: If your dog has a medical condition or injury that can be completely resolved without recurrence, or showing any clinical signs – then goes one year from the original incident without any symptoms or treatment, this could be considered a curable medical condition and covered later.

How much does dog insurance cost and how is it determined?

At Fetch, your dog insurance plan’s cost will never be affected by sex, medical and behavioral history, spay or neuter status and indoor or outdoor status. So what do we factor in when we’re determining your plan’s cost? It’s simple: your dog’s age, breed and location. From there, you’ve got options. Here are the different factors you can customize to make sure your price fits your budget.

Dog insurance terms — decoded:

Maximum annual payout
The maximum dollar amount you can be paid back each year. Choosing a lower max annual payout will make your price lower.

Annual deductible
The amount of vet care you need to pay for yourself before we can reimburse you for claims. Choosing a higher deductible will make your price lower.

Reimbursement
The percentage of an approved claim total that we can cover. You can choose 70%, 80% or 90%. Choosing a lower reimbursement rate will make your price lower.

How much does a vet visit cost without dog insurance?

The cost of vet visits without dog insurance varies widely and depends on factors like your dog’s breed, age, location and, of course, what brings you and your pup to the vet in the first place.

Let’s say your Australian Shepherd has a bout of vomiting and diarrhea (dogs, they’re just like us!). Your vet bill would cost, on average, $905 without dog insurance coverage. Fetch covers up to 90% of your unexpected vet bills after you’ve met your deductible – in this case, $814 would be covered. Getting Fetch means getting a significant reduction in your vet bill costs, so that your pup gets the medical attention they may need, and you’ll be protected from the full cost of vet expenses if they do.
