Knose Pet Insurance lets you choose how much of your vet bills you want covered - 70%, 80% or 90%. It offers two comprehensive pet insurance policies: cover for your dog and cover for your cat. These policies include cover for accidents, illnesses, euthanasia and come with an annual benefit limit of $25,000 for all covered conditions, with no sub-limits for specific ailments like paralysis ticks. Plus the standard waiting period for illness is about half that of other brands (14 days versus 30 days for other brands.)
What pet insurance policies does Knose offer?
Keeping things simple and straightforward, Knose offers two pet insurance policies: Cover for dogs and Cover for cats.
If your pet is injured or suffers an illness and you incur vet costs for any necessary treatment, Knose will reimburse you up to the benefit percentage you have selected. You can choose the benefit percentage yourself - 70%, 80% or 90%. Both policies cover your pet while you are travelling in New Zealand or Norfolk islands on a trip for less than sixty days. You will also be eligible for up to thirty days of emergency boarding for your cat or dog if you are unexpectedly hospitalised for four or more consecutive days.
