What is Pet Insurance?
Pet insurance can help to cover the cost of unexpected vet fees when your pet needs treatment due to an accident or illness. You could even be covered if your pet gets lost (this is not included in our accident only policy), with help for advertising and a reward for your lost pet. We cover both dogs and cats up to 10,000 in veterinary fees, per year with our most comprehensive Lifetime policy.
Is Pet Insurance Worth It?
Pet insurance provides peace of mind that in the event of an accident or your pet becoming ill, provided it is covered by the policy. Whilst routine veterinary visits or vaccinations aren t covered by pet insurance, unexpected bills can quickly add up, so pet insurance can help to ensure you don t have to worry about unplanned veterinary expenses.
We offer 3 types of pet insurance policy: Lifetime, 12 Month and Accident Only.
Lifetime is our most comprehensive policy. It provides cover for new conditions or accidents that occur over the course of your pet s whole lifetime as long as the policy is renewed.
12 month policy provides cover for the twelve months after a condition occurs as long as the policy remains in force. Your pet has 12 months cover from the onset of each new condition and once the financial limit has been reached or 12 months has passed, whichever is sooner. Any on-going treatment required as a result of this condition will be excluded from future claims and treated as a pre-existing condition.
Accident only policy covers your pet s treatment in case of an accident up to the cover limit.
