What Is Pet Insurance?


It’s simple – when your pet gets sick or injured, Dotsure helps pay the vet bill! Our plans cover veterinary expenses resulting from accidental injury and/or illness for your pet/s. They also protect against damage caused by your pet/s to other people’s property or person. 


Dotsure is a NZ owned pet insurance specialist. We are 100% committed to protecting you and your pet/s from the unnecessary shock of another, unaffordable vet bill.


Although Dotsure is new to NZ, we are underwritten by Pacific International Insurance which has proudly operated in NZ since 2001.

How Does It Work?

  • Select the Dotsure plan that suits you best.
  • Get the best treatment you can if your pet/s is injured or gets sick.
  • Send us your bills and we will transfer your claim entitlement to your account.
