Dog Insurance

You can rest easier knowing your puppies, dogs and senior dogs are protected with MetLife Pet Insurance.1

We reimburse based on what you're actually paying at the vet's office, not what we think the treatment for specific conditions should be. MetLife Pet Insurance1 allows you to get your dog the care they need without worrying about the expensive cost of veterinary care.

"Because we had MetLife, we were able to do the targeted therapy for Molly at no cost to us. I've never been so happy in my life to have secured the best insurance! It was twice daily trip for a week, 2 hours each way, that we would never have been able to swing if MetLife hadn't been there for us." - Ashley, Molly's Mom
