Pet Insurance

One in three pets require treatment for illness or injury each year, and advances in veterinary treatment mean that sick and injured pets can often be coaxed back to good health. This is good news for dogs and their owners - until the vet's bill arrives.

Think how horrendous it would be if you're beloved dog needed treatment but you could not afford to pay! Most people are now taking out pet insurance or a pet care plan to cover their dogs in case of illness or accidents, and not just pedigrees either.

Insurance or Pet Care Plans, for your dog are designed to protect your dog and your finances against health problems, damage caused by your dog and other potentially expensive possibilities.

What dog pet insurance covers

Although different insurance providers have varying terms they all tend to cover the following provisions:

Vet Fees
Almost all dogs will need to visit the vet at some point in their life. The fees incurred by accident or injury is covered in most policies. Pet insurance makes a real difference to everyone here.

Death of Pets
Money is paid out on  your care plan to help buy a new pet or/and cover cost of disposal should the worst happen.

Holiday Cancellation
Some policies protect you against having to cancel your holiday if your dog becomes ill.

Kennel Costs
If you need to spend an extended time away from home (i.e. hospital treatment), a dog pet insurance policy will often cover the cost of boarding kennels for your dog.

Missing Dog Benefit
Most pet insurance provides for advertising and rewards for your dog should they go missing or be stolen.

Third Party Public Liability
Cover if your dog causes injury or damage to a third party.

Accidental Damage
In case your dog accidentally damages the property of a third party.

The right dog pet insurance policy will protect your dogs' well-being and allow you peace of mind. However, it is crucial to ensure that the policy you pick covers your pet to the extent you would like.
