A Roy Morgan Single Source survey shows that an estimated 609,000 Australians aged 14+ had pet insurance in the year to March 2018. However, only 7.1% of the 5.4 million Australians who own a dog have pet insurance, while only 3.8% of an estimated 3.4 million cat owners have pet insurance. Employed people account for 77.4% of those holding pet insurance, well above their population proportion (57.5%). Individuals with annual income of $50,000 or more account for 56.4% of those with pet insurance, but only represents 35.5% of the population. Life stage also has an impact on pet insurance, as shown by the fact that 46.7% with this insurance are paying off their house, well above the population average of 31.0%.
