HUB International and Spot Pet Insurance Services, ULC, have entered into a partnership, announced June 7 by Spot Pet, that will see the firms offering dog and cat pet insurance to HUB’s Canadian clients.

“HUB will showcase Spot to Canadian pet parents. The partnership unlocks discounted plans from Spot, making it easy to help ensure that their furry family members are taken care of,” the statement reads.

The digital platform allows clients to submit claims, track reimbursement status and manage policy details. Clients can use any veterinarian they wish, and coverage is customizable, with optional routine and preventative care included for an extra fee each month. The program reimburses pet owners up to 90 per cent.

The coverage also provides 100 per cent reimbursement for holiday trip cancellations, kenneling and additional living expenses. The policies do not cover pre-existing conditions, elective or routine treatments, dental or reproductive treatments. The policies are not available in Quebec.

The accident-only and accident and illness pet insurance policies are underwritten by Northbridge Insurance and administered by PTZ Insurance Services Ltd.
