We want to see more of the UK’s pets insured.
As a nation of animal lovers, it’s sad to see that only 25% of dogs and 13% of cats have pet insurance cover in place in the case of unexpected injury or illness (Source: ABI, 2020).
We know you love your best friend. We know they mean the world to you. This is why we want to send a message out to all pet owners.
Let’s get #morepetsinsured
Sadly, there’s no free National Health Service for our cats and dogs.

Could you afford the vet bills if your furry friend needed veterinary care?
With so many pet insurance policies in the market, it can be confusing as to what’s really right for you and your pet’s needs. It’s easy to just pick the cheapest pet insurance policy and relax. But it’s important to take some time to consider if that policy would be enough if your pet suddenly developed a lifelong condition.
An annual policy (also known as ‘time-limited’) will only cover your pet for any new illnesses or injuries for 365 days.
A lifetime policy offers a far more comprehensive level of cover for your pet. These policies typically offer a fixed amount of veterinary fee cover which will be renewed each policy year, so long as you remain with the same provider, your premiums are paid up to date and you renew your cover every year. Lifetime cover will ensure that your pet can receive lifelong treatment should they develop a condition such as diabetes or arthritis.
Accident only – These are generally 12-month policies that cover the cost of treating your pet in the event of an accident. This type of policy may cover the cost of the ongoing care of your pet in relation to any injury so long as you continue your cover with that provider.
Maximum benefit – These policies provide a fixed amount of money to cover the cost of any treatment for each new illness or injury. This amount will continue for each new illness or injury as long as the policy is renewed or until the limit has been reached.
When choosing a pet insurance policy, make sure you and your best friend are covered for all of your adventures.
