Insurance

Pet owners are fortunate that Britain is one of a few countries in the world that has well-established, reputable and efficient pet insurance. We strongly advise all pet owners to insure their pets against expenses incurred through illness or accident. 

Not all pet insurance is the same so it's important to choose your policy  wisely. 

The most comprehensive policy is a lifetime /covered for life policy  - you can continue to claim each year, upto the maximum benefit as long as you renew your policy. 

Time-limited policies - have a time limit of 12 months place on any claim, after which the condition will be excluded. 

Maximum benefit policies pay out until the maximum benefit level is reached (levels vary) when the condition will be excluded. 

Things to consider when choosing a policy are:

  • Is the insurance company reputable?
  • Is the company a pet insurance specialist?
  • Have you compared the excesses and benefit levels?
  • Have you checked that the premium and excess does not increase each time you make a claim?
  • Will the company insure your pet into its old age?
  • Check the insurere will not place exclusions at renewal for an illness that has ocurred the previous policy year.
  • Check if your insurer will cover the following after the start of the insurance: congenital and hereditary illness, hip related conditions, dental treatment, behavioural problems, diet food used to dissolve bladder stones and crystals in urine.

We accept direct claims, meaning that we claim the costs directly from your insurance policy. We request that your excess, if known, or £99 if the excess is not known, is paid at the time of treatment. Please note we do not accept direct claims from E & L policies, or any policy underwritten by E & L, these include Equine and Livestock Insurance Ltd, Pet Insurance and Pet emporium. If you have an E & L policy we kindly request that you settle your account and then claim the cost back from your insurance provider. It is our practice policy to process insurance claims on behalf of clients as soon as practically possibles.
