The Emergency Fund provides up to $3,000 towards one life-threatening pet emergency per year. The emergency fund acts as a security blanket for those unexpected, and often financially crippling, situations where your pet requires immediate medical attention.


An emergency is defined as a life-threatening situation, as determined by a Pawp Veterinary Professional, based on the signs and symptoms that a pet is exhibiting.

Emergencies include, but are not limited to:

  • Toxic Ingestion

  • Choking & Difficulty Breathing

  • Severe Blockages

The examples above are not an exhaustive list and every emergency be verified by Pawp's licensed Veterinary Professional team by triage performed on a live video call.

Pawp members are required to contact our licensed Veterinary team immediately for emergency triage upon belief that their pet is experiencing an emergency. The pet must be visible on a live video in order for a Pawp Veterinary Professional to determine if, and to what extent, the pet needs care.

Pawp's licensed Veterinary Professionals are available 24/7 and you can connect with our team in under two minutes by clicking here.
