Some types of pet insurance include health, liability and life insurance. Pet health insurance is a form of property insurance and covers the cost of medical care, according to the North American Pet Health Insurance Association. Health coverage applies to accidental injuries, illnesses and routine check-ups as well.
Some pet health insurance policies will pay out upon the death of an insured pet, according to Wikipedia. If a pet is lost or stolen, the insurance coverage may apply to such losses as well.
Liability pet insurance covers circumstances in which their pet inflicts harm on another person, as Pets Best Insurance Services details. The cost for damages of someone else's property caused by an insured pet can also be covered with such pet insurance policies.
