Veterinary Professional Insurance Society Incorporated

VPIS was established in 1987 exclusively to provide tailored insurance and pastoral support to veterinarians and the veterinary profession. Our focus is to ensure our members’ interests are protected and promoted wherever possible – so they can focus on being the best they can be for their customers.

We do this primarily by providing Professional Liability insurance that has been developed by veterinarians, for veterinarians. This means our members can take comfort that VPIS insurance has their reality covered.

What makes VPIS insurance the best in market for veterinarians?
  • Our members get more than just insurance that’s developed and delivered by their peers. They also get membership benefits including pastoral support, pre and post-loss risk and incident advice and education, and discretionary financial support
  • As a not-for-profit member society, any profits we make go back into the society to help us support you, when you need us
  • Although we’re an independent incorporated society, we’re big on partnerships working closely with the New Zealand Veterinary Association (NZVA) and the Veterinary Council of New Zealand (VCNZ), for the mutual benefit of our members and the profession
  • And because we’re veterinarians at heart, we leave the policy administration to Crombie Lockwood, so we can focus on helping our members when they need it most – at claim time.
