Dog insurance plans
Customize your coverage by choosing from three types of dog insurance plans: routine care, accident-only, and accident and illness.
Accidental injury dog insurance
Accident Only plan for dogs
Choose the Accident Only plan for the most affordable coverage for your dog. This type of pet insurance for dogs can cover vet bills associated with injuries like broken bones, bite wounds, and swallowing foreign objects. It doesn't cover illness.
Pricing: $9 per month*
Accident and illness dog insurance
BestBenefit plan for dogs
A BestBenefit plan can cover everything an Accident Only plan does, plus any illness your dog suffers, unless it involves a pre-existing condition. With this plan's more comprehensive coverage, you can get reimbursed for emergency care, diagnostic tests, and visits to specialists. You'll choose your reimbursement level: 70%, 80%, or 90% of your dog's covered bills after you meet your customized annual deductible.
Pricing: Averages $36 per month**
Routine care dog insurance
EssentialWellness and BestWellness plans for dogs
Routine care coverage can be added to your BestBenefit plan to cover wellness exams, annual vaccines, dental cleanings, and routine or preventative care — with no deductible. Particularly popular for younger and older dogs, our two levels of wellness coverage can help you with expected health costs throughout the year.
EssentialWellness pricing: $16 per month††
BestWellness pricing: $26 per month§
What dog health insurance doesn't cover
Pre-existing health conditions are not covered with dog insurance plans. That means if your puppy were diagnosed with a health condition before insurance kicked in, treatment and care would not be covered. If your dog has a pre-existing medical condition, you can still purchase an insurance plan, but any related treatments won't be covered.
Accident-only and accident-and-illness dog insurance plans don't cover preventive or elective procedures. However, you can add on coverage for specific elective and preventive procedures through the EssentialWellness and BestWellness plans.
Dog insurance also doesn't cover non-veterinary expenses such as grooming, boarding, food, supplements, and holistic or experimental therapies. Learn more about what pet insurance covers and doesn't cover.

Understanding dog insurance costs
Pet insurance is relatively affordable, especially when you have the option to customize your plan to your dog's current health needs. Besides the type and amount of coverage you select, the average cost of dog insurance can also depend on your furry friend's breed, age, and location. For example, you can pick up a comprehensive accident and illness insurance plan for a small breed dog through Progressive for $239.76 – $574.56 per year.‡
