We want what’s best for your pet

We’re on a mission to make pet insurance as simple and accessible as possible for pet parents all over Australia. 

Pet insurance made simple

Pet Circle Insurance was started with a simple goal – to provide pet insurance that could empower every pet parent to pet better. Key to achieving this is our team of in-house vets, 90% of whom still work part-time in veterinary practices all over Australia.

Vets know that the biggest barrier pet parents face in giving their beloved furry friends the best possible treatment is lack of pet insurance. We’re guided by them every day to create a simple policy with the right amount of flexibility and cover to make pet insurance an affordable option for everyone with a pet.

It started with a man and his dog

Yes, it’s true. Back in 2011, our founder Mike noticed that his father had stopped buying their golden retriever’s favourite food. Turns out that Mike’s dad had injured his back and could no longer lug the 15kg food bags home from the pet store. The idea behind Pet Circle was born and the rest, as they say, is history.

Fast forward to today, and Pet Circle has become Australia’s #1 online pet store, trusted by more than 1 million pet parents to help their pets live their best lives. Pet Circle are now the experts in pets, guided every day by the expertise and experience of a team of in-house vets and a commitment to bettering the lives of pets and pet parents alike!

Life at Pet Circle

Loved by customers and their pets

Billy and Jerry (his rescue ragdoll)

I took out insurance with Pet Circle late last year for my one year old rescue Ragdoll, Jerry and I'm very glad I did. I'm an anxious pet parent at the best of times, and he is our very special furbaby! Jerry had a few stomach issues and having insurance meant we didn't think twice about taking him to the Vet. We were able to give him the care he needed without worrying about what it might cost us. Pet Circle insurance were really easy to deal with and my claim was paid super quickly.

Manis and Pique (her Bluey)

Pique (my Bluey) and I used to get our insurance from another company. Many people warned me about the pre-existing conditions assessment when I decided to switch. But since moving to Pet Circle, we've seen significant savings. We now only pay our $150 excess once per year - with our last provider, it was $200 for every single claim! Vet visits are no longer a worry. Thanks, Pet Circle Insurance!
