Pet Insurance 101
If you could get away with bubble wrapping your dog to protect them from all possible accidents and illnesses, we know you would. Logistically, that’s not possible — but we can let you in on the next best thing: Fetch by The Dodo’s Pet Health Forecast.
With Fetch’s technology and 16 years of clinical health research of 725,000 dogs, you can get ahead of illnesses and injuries your dog might be predisposed to. Consider it a peek into your dog’s future health.
Free for a limited time, you fill out your dog’s breed, age and location. Then Fetch generates a three-page profile that combines veterinary care, artificial intelligence and clinical doggy data to identify the health conditions your pup is most likely to experience throughout their life. It only takes a few minutes.
So now what? Print out these insights and take them to your next vet visit. You and your vet can chat through the findings and put in place a plan to prevent any future health issues your pet may experience. The goal is to give your best friend the longest, healthiest life possible.

Introducing the Fetch Health Forecast.
Even without in-depth research and vet-driven conversations, Fetch’s Pet Health Forecast can help you be the most mindful pet parent throughout your daily routine.
When I filled out a report for my 2-year-old labradoodle, Presley, I discovered that over the next 3 years, she has an 11% chance of developing an ear infection due to allergies or dampness in her ear canals from activities like bathing and swimming.
Along with symptoms to look out for, Presley’s report noted that one-in-10 dog parents pay over $630 to treat ear inflammation and infections. The report’s prevention suggestion: To regularly flush her ears using a flushing and drying solution and feed her a healthy, vet-approved diet while avoiding switching brands and flavors.
Presley’s Pet Health Report went above and beyond, sharing the probability of her experiencing accidents and illnesses throughout different stages of her life. It also explained common health issues and the average ongoing cost of care for dogs like her.
With Fetch, I always know Presley is in the best hands — and the fact that a pet insurance company offers services for being proactive about her long-term health proves it.
