Is your pet pooch or kitty fur-ever getting into scrapes? If you’re constantly worried about being landed with a big vet bill, then you might want to check out Bow Wow Meow.

Not only has Bow Wow Meow been offering pet insurance for over a decade but it was also just awarded a 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Award for Exceptional Quality Pet Insurance!

Bow Wow Meow was one of eight pet insurance providers that impressed the judges enough to scoop up an award this year. No mean feat considering our team of experts assessed a whopping 133 policies from 31 different providers.

Expert Judge Peter Marshall said, “Bow Wow Meow’s Ultimate Care pet insurance policy impressed us in a number of areas. Not only does it offer a wide range of benefits, including dental and tick paralysis, but it also comes with a high annual benefit limit.”

About Bow Wow Meow

An Aussie owned business, Bow Wow Meow has been looking out for pets since the 90s. In fact, it was even around before Harry’s Practice first aired on Channel Seven.

The company started selling personalised pet ID tags in 1995, before branching out to pet insurance in 2008.

Bow Wow Meow’s Ultimate Care pet insurance 

Bow Wow Meow’s award-winning pet insurance provides cover for dogs and cats. Key features of the Ultimate Care plan include:

  • Generous 80% benefit percentage
  • $20,000 annual benefit limit
  • $1,000 annual cover for dental illness
  • $3,000 annual cover for tick paralysis
  • Zero excess, meaning smaller vet bills are covered
  • Option to add routine care cover.

Your furry friend can be signed up to the insurance plan as young as eight weeks old. However, there is an age limit, so just make sure you take out a policy for your little buddy before their ninth birthday.

You’ll also be happy to hear that with this policy you can use any vet in Australia and even, in some cases, overseas.

Finally, as with any type of insurance always make sure you read through the product disclosure statement thoroughly before signing on the dotted line. Check out our ultimate guide to getting pet insurance in 2020 for more information.

The Mozo Experts Choice Awards

In case you haven’t heard of them, the Mozo Experts Choice Awards are conducted yearly by our team of data experts and have been going strong for the past seven years. The main aim of the awards is to highlight what we believe are market-leading products, so that Aussies can make more informed decisions.

For our Exceptional Quality Pet Insurance awards we looked at the generosity of benefits and the flexibility of each policy. Our Quality awards do not take price into account.

In particular, we looked for plans that included dental cover, a high annual benefit limit, tick paralysis cover and routine care. You can read more details about how the awards are determined in our methodology report.
