Spot Pet Insurance expands to Canada

Spot Pet Insurance announced the availability of its product in Canada. Policies offered by Spot are underwritten by Northbridge General Insurance Corporation and administered by PTZ Insurance Services.

Spot was founded in 2019 to provide pet insurance in the United States through United States Fire Insurance Company, a Crum & Forster affiliate. Spot announced dog trainer Cesar Millan as its chairman when it first started, but the company no longer has an exclusive affiliation with Cesar Milan and is set to disclose a broader relationship with influencers.

“Only 3% of pet parents have pet insurance for their furry friends in Canada. Spot’s mission is to help protect pet parents while continuing to help build strong communities of pet lovers. Through pet health-focused education, we spread the importance of peace of mind, to enjoy many years of pet health together.” – Trey Ferro, CEO at Spot.

Bottom Line: There are around 8.3 million Canadian households with a cat and 8.2 million with a dog.
