This type of pet insurance policy is less comprehensive than our Accident & Illness plan[1] , but the Accident-Only plan is the most affordable option we offer at the lowest pet insurance cost.

We all know that accidents are common in life, but what exactly does this accident best pet insurance plan cover? We’re here to answer the most common questions with the Accident-Only policy, but if we miss any, feel free to reach out at 888-820-7739.
