Goose Pet Insurance covers your pet for injuries (Accident Only Policy) or for injuries & accidents (Accident & Illness Policy). The coverage includes veterinary exams and treatment for a covered injury or illness, such as tests, surgery, hospitalization, and emergency ground pet ambulance. The coverage is subject to co-payments and deductibles as listed on the declarations page.
An Accident is defined as a sudden or unexpected event that causes Injury to Your Pet. An Illness is defined as any change to the normal healthy state of Your Pet, a sickness, disease, or Medical Condition that is not caused by an accident.
