Principal Partner

Pet insurance specialist PD Insurance is on a mission to make pet medical care affordable and accessible for all. At its heart are two mantras: simplicity and soft landings, for pets and their humans. PD Insurance’s commitment to insurance excellence and fast claims is as strong as its commitment to educating animal lovers on appreciating, nurturing and protecting pets. Our partnership will contribute greatly to us further improving Kiwi companion animals’ wellbeing and allow more valuable research into their big health and welfare concerns. In working together to improve knowledge of pets’ health needs and the issues our veterinary sector faces, we can achieve a lot.
