With pet insurance, you may visit any licensed veterinarian, veterinary specialist or animal hospital in the world for treatment of many medical problems.

Rates for pet insurance are based on the age and species of the pet and the type of plan you select.

Anyone with an active employment assignment at UK is eligible to purchase pet insurance.

Our pet insurance plan is administered by Nationwide. It includes access to vethelpline, a 24/7 service that provides live help from a veterinary professional for any pet health concern, including identifying urgent care needs. A vethelpline consultation is not a substitute for a visit to your primary veterinarian.

Answers to frequently asked questions are available from Nationwide.
