Q: Can I keep my same vet?
A: Yes, you can take your pet to any licensed vet in the U.S. or Canada, including specialists and emergency care providers.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: The amount you pay every month is different for everyone based on your zip code, your pet’s breed, and your pet’s age. But don’t worry! You can customize your plan options so you’re able to find a plan that works with your budget.
Q: How does it really work?
A: It’s simple! You just pay your vet as you normally would.

Prudent Pet will then reimburse you via check or direct deposit.

Accident coverage includes coverage for injuries and emergencies related to accidents, like torn ligaments, bite wounds, broken bones, lodged foreign objects, and ingestion of toxic substances.
llness coverage includes coverage for the treatment of all kinds of illnesses, including cancer, arthritis, allergies, digestive problems, and UTIs. Plans can also cover hereditary and congenital conditions, dental disease, and destructive behavioral issues. For a full list of everything that’s covered is on the Prudent Pet Website.
Q: What is a reimbursement percentage?
A: The reimbursement percentage is how much money you get back from Prudent Pet after you submit your claim via our claims process. For example, if you have a $100 vet bill and you select a plan offering 90% reimbursement, you’ll get $90 back. If you’re looking to make your monthly payment lower, opt for a lower reimbursement.
