IndePet is always working towards helping our store network increase profit, lower costs, and strengthen the group of independent pet stores in New Zealand and Australia.

We recently partnered with PD Pet Insurance to help support customers in accessing pet insurance and to create a passive income stream for stores.

Why is Pet Insurance Important?
Research conducted by PD Insurance showed that more than half our respondents either can’t or aren’t sure if they can afford a $1000+ vet bill. That is pretty concerning when you consider 1 in 5 of them who have/have had insurance say they’d claimed $2,500 or more from their pet insurer in just one year.
There is a growing sentiment amongst customers, especially millennials, about the importance of pet insurance as part of responsible pet ownership.
Indepet stores support the best care for their customers and their pets, offering a pet insurance option is a great thing to add to the already amazing range of services and support our stores offer.
