Most pet insurance plans cover accidents and illnesses, but do you also want other types of coverage for your pet? AKC Pet Healthcare Plan does not have coverage available for hereditary and congenital conditions, alternative therapies or behavioral issues.

With ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plans, we have 4 levels of coverage that offer all of these options, so it’s easy to find the right plan for your needs.

There's also no limit to the number of accidents or illnesses we'll cover each year or over a pet's lifetime. Considering many of our customers who file a claim wind up filing three or more in a year,+ this can make a big difference.
