COVID‐19: A message for our policyholders

As our communities battle COVID-19, AKC Pet Insurance remains committed to the health of your pet and the safety of our team members. In early March, we took precautions by implementing our remote workforce for the safety of our employees and communities, while still being able to provide the timely and quality customer service you expect from us.

While we all continue to adapt many parts of our lives in these challenging times, we urge you to utilize our highlighted resources Customer Portal, 24/7 AKC Pet Insurance Vet Helpline and AKC Pet Insurance blogs whenever possible, including contacting our Customer Care Team for policy questions and/or changes.

COVID-19: What pet parents need to know

Can my pet contract COVID-19?

At this time, it is believed that pets are not likely to contract COVID-19.

Can my pet transmit COVID-19?

Compared to the risk of human-to-human transmission, the risk of your pet transmitting COVID-19 to a human in your household is negligable. It is recommended that everyone who interacts with pets wash their hands before and after the interaction as knowledge about the disease evolves.
