Age Restrictions

All pet insurance companies have age restrictions when you enroll in a plan. Every company has a minimum age requirement and will not insure pets under 6-8 weeks old depending on the company.

Some pet insurers also have maximum age limits, which means you need to enroll before a specific age. The most common maximum age limit for enrollment is 10-12 years old.

What it means for You


The key is to enroll in a plan while your pet is young and healthy to avoid being denied coverage. The good news is that once you enroll in a plan, your dog or cat will be covered for life, regardless of their age.
