At MetLife Pet Insurance, we get it — pets are like family. When a member of the family becomes sick or injured, you do whatever it takes to fix it. But those veterinary costs can add up quickly, which is where MetLife Pet Insurance plans can come in.

Pet Insurance — How It Works

We’re Feeling the Love

At MetLife Pet Insurance, we’re pet parents too. That’s why we’re dedicated to helping you keep your pets happy and healthy. But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what other pet parents had to say about us.

So glad we had the MetLife Pet Insurance policy. This past summer my Frenchie suffered a horrible seizure and had to stay in the hospital for 4 days — then we had to go visit a neurologist vet. Thousands of dollars. Already had met my deductible and very happy to say I got 90% back! It is very easy to submit the claims,  and reimbursement comes in about 3 weeks. So happy I had the insurance.

I have had a few pet insurance companies previously. MetLife Pet is by far the best! Easy-to-submit claims. Never a hassle processing claims. Claims are quickly processed and there are multiple choices for reimbursement! Great experience overall! I have been using them for the last 9 months and I am very pleased!

Karen F.,, 9/9/2023

I signed up with MetLife Pet Insurance during my company's open enrollment Nov. 2022 with coverage going in effect Jan. 1, 2023. I have had nothing but positive experiences with MetLife Pet and I have filed several claims. Keep up the good job MetLife Pet Insurance.

For a typically low monthly fee, pet health insurance helps to reimburse you for a portion of your vet bills, helping you pay for your dog or cat’s unexpected medical expenses. Insurance plans typically don’t cover pre-existing conditions, which is why it’s a great idea to sign up your dog or cat when they are healthy.4 Learn more about how pet insurance works

Pre-existing conditions are typically injuries or illnesses, or symptoms that occurred prior to your coverage start date and any applicable waiting period. Learn more about pre-existing conditions, and reference your policy for full details.

The cost of pet insurance depends on a variety of factors, including the species, breed, sex,5 and age of your pet. Where you live also helps determine what you pay. The type of coverage you need will affect costs, too. Learn more about pet insurance costs or get a free quote.

Nope, you can use any licensed vet in the U.S.! Unlike with human health insurance, there is no such thing as “in-network” and “out-of-network” providers. So if you have a vet that you currently love, there is no need to switch.

It’s never too late to make sure your pet has coverage. With no age restrictions, we are here for even our most silver of seniors and can help with everything from end-of-life care to grief counseling.

We have zero breed exclusions, whether you have a golden doodle prone to hip dysplasia or a scottish fold prone to kidney disease. 

We can help handle the vet bill.
You handle the belly rubs.
