In the pet business ERV is now cooperating with Smart Paws and VetTrust

Kooperation Tiergeschäft Smart Paws und VetTrust

At the start of 2022, Europäische Reiseversicherung ERV, the pet insurance company Smart Paws, and the veterinary group VetTrust joined forces. Customers can now benefit from a unique insurance solution for dogs and cats.

In recent years, veterinary medicine and treatment options have developed rapidly. At the same time, the cost of treatments has increased. The new cooperation creates an easy way for pet owners to protect themselves from unexpected high costs.

“Smart Paws Swiss Pet Insurance – VetTrust Edition” is the new offering that customers can take out online or by phone with Smart Paws. Those who also have their dog or cat treated at a VetTrust veterinary practice benefit, among other things, from the fact that the service is billed directly to the insurer ERV. However, there is of course a free choice of vet.


  • Customers do not have to pay in advance, as would be the usual market practice
  • No age limit
  • Hereditary or congenital diseases included in all insurance variants
  • Low deductible   

More information on the offer is available on the website
