Senior Pet Insurance: Protect Your Golden Oldie from Pain

Safety First comes with Senior Pet Insurance


Like humans, as pets age they become more prone to illness and injury; but that doesn’t mean they don’t still deserve all of our love and extra special care. After years of unconditional love and loyalty, the least your senior pet can expect is a warm bed, good food and medical care when needed. This is where senior pet insurance comes to the fore.

Costs can add up quite quickly when you’re trying to take good care of your senior pet’s health.   Fortunately,’s pet insurance plans have no age limit, so you can cover your senior pet and get the same benefits as someone insuring their puppy or kitten (pre-existing conditions excluded).

The age at which pets are considered senior depends on their breed; for example, Great Danes are senior at 6 years old, while Yorkies are only senior at 10 years old. Cats tend to be considered senior at 12 years old.

At, your pet qualifies for our family (multi-pet) plans up until they are 10 years old. But your insurance doesn’t stop there. After your pet turns 10, they come off the multi-plan policy and get their own policy with unique benefits for senior pets.
