1. With Spot Pet Insurance plans, you can get your dog or cat’s exam fees for eligible conditions covered.

We’re committed to helping ensure that your pet gets the care they need when they need it — which is why you can rest assured that exam fees and vet visits for eligible conditions are covered by pet insurance plans provided by Spot.

2. Spot covers Rx foods and supplements used to treat eligible conditions

Both Spot plans and Healthy Paws plans cover prescription medications used to treat covered conditions, but Healthy Paws plans do not cover Rx foods or supplements used to treat covered conditions. Plans provided by Spot cover Rx foods and supplements used to treat eligible conditions (as long as a food or supplement is prescribed to treat an eligible condition and not for general health or weight maintenance).

3. Spot Pet Insurance provides Preventive Care Coverage.

Spot Pet Insurance offers an optional preventive care add-on that can be used to cover the routine veterinary costs that come with having a pet. Annual wellness exams, dental cleanings, vaccinations, and other services can be covered under a preventive care add-on. Healthy Paws does not offer preventive care coverage.

4. Spot plans cover behavioral problems.

Spot Pet Insurance accident & illness plans include coverage for behavioral problems.

5. If you enroll more than one pet, you get a discount with Spot Plans.

Unlike Healthy Paws plans, if you add on more than one pet in your family, you will be able to get a multi-pet discount. Spot Pet Insurance plans provide a 10 percent multi-pet discount for all additional pets.

Spot Pet Insurance Gives You Options

Spot Pet health insurance is here for our four-legged friends (and their people). That’s why we offer premium pet insurance plans. Plans provided by Spot only have a 14-day waiting period (including orthopedic concerns like hip dysplasia, unlike some other pet insurance plans). With plans that don’t include upper age limits for older pets and preventative care coverage options (for an additional cost), Spot is here.
