Pet Insurance for Your Furriest Family Members

Pet Health Insurance 

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

Our insurance plans for dogs and cats can help reimburse you for unexpected vet bills. We can provide insurance for pets of all ages — even seniors — and offer robust annual benefit amount options, chronic care coverage, and no lifetime or per-incident limits. You can also customize your deductible and reimbursement rates so they work best for your pet's needs and your budget.

Why MetLife Pet Insurance

Peace of mind sounds perfect, doesn’t it? Affordable, extensive coverage means your pet can get the care they need to help them live a long and healthy life — and you can stay worry-free.

Pet Insurance — How It Works


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.2 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, sex3, 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.
