Pet insurance removes the financial worry of having an ill pet and allows you to concentrate on getting your pet back to health. Pet insurance policies vary a great deal, make sure that you check the points listed below to ensure that you choose the best policy for you and your pet.

  • What is the maximum amount that will be paid out if your pet is ill or injured? Is this per year or per condition?

  • Will long term conditions be covered for life, or, will exclusions be placed after a year?
  • Do pet's premiums rise if claims are made?
  • What is included, would you like cover for referral to veterinary specialists, dental work, behaviour therapy, special diets etc?

You may be surprised to hear that you are more likely to claim on your pet insurance than your car or household policies (Allianz Insurance plc). In fact, in our experience if you don’t need to claim on your pet insurance you really are very lucky indeed!

It’s important to be aware that not all pet insurance is the same. Some policies limit the amount of time or money that you can claim for so don’t just shop around on price alone.

At Independent Vet Care Ltd. we recommend Petplan’s Covered For Life® insurance for the following reasons:

• Petplan’s Covered For Life® policies guarantee your veterinary fees cover is renewed each year no matter how often you claim (providing you renew your policy each year with no break in cover).
• Petplan doesn’t place exclusions at renewal on their Covered For Life® policies so on-going conditions such as eczema continue to be covered year after year.
• Petplan won’t increase your premium or excess just because you make a claim.
• Petplan is a pet insurance specialist so they understand pets and work closely with vets, charities and breeders.
