Pet Insurance for the Ones You Love

Pets are unpredictable. While it’s hard to anticipate accidents and illnesses, Nationwide® helps to make it a little easier to be prepared for them. From preventive care visits to significant medical incidents, Nationwide provides protection for pets when they need it most.

Nationwide policies cover a multitude of medical problems and conditions, including cancer. Coverage is available for dogs, cats, birds, and exotic pets, plus optional wellness care coverage reimburses for vaccinations, flea/tick prevention, and more. Policyholders are free to use any veterinarian worldwide—even specialists and emergency care providers.

Best of all, you are eligible for a group discount which makes this peace-of-mind protection even more affordable.
