If your vet recommends it, Fetch probably covers it.
With Fetch, your pup can see any vet in the U.S. or Canada. Like other puppy insurance plans — and just like your own insurance — Fetch does not cover pre-existing conditions. That's why it's helpful to get coverage as soon as you can. Getting Fetch means peace of mind, all in one simple puppy insurance plan.
Sick-visit exam fees
Every sick visit comes with an exam fee, which can be around $50 – $250. We cover those exam fees for you. Not all providers do.
Other providers charge extra for medical conditions linked to breed (like hip dysplasia in French Bulldogs), which will be top of mind if you adopt or get a purebred puppy. We don’t.
We care about pet parents, too. Fetch covers the cost to board your pet at a licensed facility should you require hospitalization. Up to $1,000 per year.
Advertising & reward
If your pet is missing, we cover the cost of advertising and pay a reasonable reward for finding them. Up to $1,000 per year.
Name-brand prescription medications & supplements
We cover prescription drugs like antibiotics and anxiety medicine, plus vitamins and other supplements, when recommended by a vet to treat your pet’s injury or illness.
1 in 3 pets need unexpected veterinary care each year.

Your puppy insurance questions – answered!
What is puppy insurance coverage?
If your pet gets sick or hurt, puppy insurance coverage reimburses you. Fetch puppy insurance offers the most comprehensive coverage in the U.S. and Canada and pays you back up to 90%, making your vet bills more affordable. With Fetch, you won’t have to choose between your wallet and your best friend, and it’s easy to give your puppy the care they need to live their longest, healthiest, happiest life.
Why do I need a puppy insurance plan?
Every six seconds, a pet parent is faced with a vet bill of more than $1,000. That doesn’t even take into account the rising cost of inflation, or the fact that veterinary medicine is getting better – and more expensive. Fetch puppy insurance plans give you protection from these increasing costs and peace of mind that’s priceless. Everything from allergies to name-brand prescriptions to a cracked tooth — and so much more — is covered by Fetch.
When should I get puppy insurance coverage?
The sooner you enroll, the sooner your puppy’s covered. Fetch covers pets of all ages, but to make sure your pup gets as much puppy insurance coverage as possible, it's best to sign up before they need it. Like other pet insurance providers, Fetch doesn’t cover pre-existing conditions – which is why we recommend signing up as early as possible. Insuring your puppy before health issues develop is recommended, so you and your best friend can live your best lives together.
What’s not covered?
Like other puppy insurance providers, we are unable to cover pre-existing conditions. These are injuries or illnesses that occur before you enroll or during the 15-day waiting period.
To give your puppy more protection, Fetch classifies pre-existing conditions as incurable or curable. This means that a chronic, incurable condition (think: arthritis) is not covered. However, if your pup has a urinary tract infection (UTI) — something that is temporary and curable — then goes one year from the original incident without any symptoms or treatment, your pup’s UTI may be classified as curable and covered later.
How much does puppy insurance cost and how is it determined?
At Fetch, your puppy insurance plan’s cost will never be affected by sex, medical and behavioral history, spay or neuter status and indoor or outdoor status. So what do we factor in when we’re determining your plan’s cost? It’s simple: your pup’s age, breed and location.
From there, you’ve got options. Here are the levers you can pull to either pay less or get paid back more.
Puppy insurance terms — decoded:
Annual puppy insurance coverage amount
The maximum dollar amount you can be paid back per your pup’s plan annually. The higher your annual puppy insurance coverage amount, the more you’ll pay per month.
The fixed dollar amount you're responsible for paying before your insurance kicks in. The higher your deductible plan, the lower your puppy insurance plan will cost per month.
The percentage of each covered vet bill you’ll be paid back after you meet your deductible. The higher your reimbursement rate, the more you’ll pay per month.
How much does a vet visit cost without puppy insurance?
The cost of vet visits without puppy insurance varies widely and depends on factors like your puppy’s breed, age, location and, of course, what brings you and your pup to the vet in the first place.
Let’s say your French Bulldog puppy has a bout of vomiting and diarrhea (dogs, they’re just like us!). Your vet bill would cost, on average, $519 without puppy insurance coverage. Fetch covers up to 90% of your unexpected vet bills after you’ve met your deductible and copays – in this case, $385 would be covered. Getting Fetch means getting a significant reduction in your vet bill costs, so that your pup gets the medical attention they may need, and you’ll be protected from the full cost of vet expenses if they do.
