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 cover alternative therapies or behavioral issues, and hereditary conditions and exam fees are only covered if you purchase optional add-ons.

With ASPCA Pet Health Insurance Complete CoverageSM, all of this coverage is included, so you don’t have to guess which types of coverage your pet may need.
