Cat insurance

Cat insurance

The animal health insurance for cats / cat insurance offers you as a cat owner insurance cover for illnesses of your cat.
Regardless of whether your cat needs treatment due to an illness, an accident or even an operation, the cat health insurance covers the veterinary costs incurred. In the case of an operation, the aftercare is of course also included in the scope of benefits of the cat insurance.

Depending on the insurer, the medically necessary treatments of your cat are subject to a benefit limit. In our Basic variant, the benefit limit is 2,500 EUR per year. In the Classic and Optimal Care variants of our cat insurance for cats, there is an upper limit of 5,000 EUR and 10,000 EUR respectively per year; all medically necessary veterinary costs are covered by the insurance.

Scope of services

Here is a brief overview of the scope of benefits of cat insurance:

  • Healing treatments
  • Diagnostics
  • Surgery costs
  • Medicines

Diagnostic imaging procedures such as X-ray, CT or MRI are also covered.

Cat breeds


Depending on the breed of your cat, diseases such as corneal necrosis in the eye or a heart defect are particularly important for you as a cat owner. These diseases are included in some animal health insurance tariffs. If you would like advice on the typical treatment costs specifically for your cat's breed, please contact us. Our team of veterinarians and insurance experts will be happy to take care of you and your pet.

For our insurance cover, it does not matter whether your cat is an outdoor or an indoor cat - with us, all cats get the same insurance cover at the same price.

Protection abroad

Even on holiday, cats are sometimes our faithful companions - that's why it's important that veterinary health insurance policies also reimburse veterinary costs abroad. All insurers have their own regulations in the area of foreign protection. In our tariffs, the foreign protection is always covered and this up to 12 months abroad at a time. So if you are planning a longer stay abroad, this is no problem.

Prescription feed

The Classic Care and Optimal Care tariffs provide for proportional coverage of the cost of prescribed special food such as diet food, food for allergy sufferers, etc. The Classic Care and Optimal Care tariffs also cover the cost of food for allergy sufferers.

Old cats

Often, older cats from the age of 8 are no longer included in cat insurance policies. This is different with the cat insurance from doc4pets- Versicherung powered by Smart Paws. You can find more information about this under: Insurance for old cats
