Milo’s Persian Cat ER visit after poisoning by eating cat litter

I’ve noticed that Milo was acting weird, he was passive and, didn’t eat at all. I texted the veterinarian in Online Vet and after a video examination she told me it was an emergency case and I need to go to a vet clinic. Hopefully, he’s okay now, it appears to be a cat litter that he had swallowed.

Luna’s Beagle ER visit after being attacked by a neighborhood dog

It all started so fast.. Thanks vet clinic near me was good. Can’t imagine what I would do, if I had to pay the bill by myself, so Petcube’s fund appeared to be a good investment. My poor girl will recover smoothly.

We cover incidents

We are sure that transparency in coverage helps to grow trust between pet parents and Petcube further.

The fund covers

  • Toxic ingestion

  • Choking and breathing difficulty

  • Severe blockages

  • Severe internal & external injuries

  • Other serious, unexpected, dangerous situations that require immediate medical attention

The fund doesn't cover

  • Scheduled appointments

  • Scheduled surgeries

  • Regular check-ups and wellness visits

  • Vaccinations and routine procedures

The lists are not exhaustive. All emergencies are evaluated on a case level by our vets.

Your concerns are addressed

Feel free to reach out with any questions at support@petcube.com

  • How do I know if the vet will accept Emergency Fund?

    Petcube coverage differs from typical insurance for cats and dogs in that we make a direct payment to the veterinary clinic of your choice. We make every effort to pay for all covered emergencies in the time it takes the facility to finish emergency care and charge the animal owner.

  • Can I use the fund for more than one incident per year?

    No, our coverage can only be used once per year per membership. The fund is limited to a one-time payout of up to $3,000 regardless of the amount.

  • How long does the fund stay available after activation?

    After being referred by our veterinarian via online chat, your Petcube Fund is available at your preferred veterinary clinic for a maximum of 4 hours.

  • Can I use the fund without consulting Petcube’s vets?

    No, to use your coverage, you must be referred to a veterinary clinic through the platform by one of our veterinarians. A video recording is mandatory to determine if it is an emergency or not.

    You will not have access to the fund if the animal has been admitted prior to contacting one of our vets.

  • Does my pet’s issue qualify for the fund's coverage?

    If you believe your dog or cat had an incident and need immediate medical attention, you must first contact one of our veterinarians before using your Petcube Fund. All cases must be reviewed and reported to the Emergency Fund platform by one of our veterinarians. You can talk to a vet here. A video is mandatory to determine if it is an emergency or not. You will not have access to the fund if the animal has been admitted prior to contacting one of our vets.
