United Pet Care is much more affordable than pet insurance, at a fraction of the cost!


All United Pet Care programs cost less than $11/month, unlike pet insurance which ranges from approximately $25 on up to $65/month depending on the age of the pet and the coverage. Unlike pet insurance, United Pet Care’s monthly fee does not go up as your pet gets older! Nor, do we exclude any pets due to age or pre-existing conditions.

United Pet Care can mean the difference between life and death for the family pet.


With the rising costs of veterinary care, it is not always easy to get our pets the medical attention that they deserve. For less than it would typically cost for a single visit to the veterinarian, membership in the United Pet Care program could save pet-owners hundreds of dollars on the cost of veterinary care!
