Ask any vet or veterinary nurse if they have pet insurance and the resounding answer will be ‘Oh yessss’! People tend to think it’s only older pets that get ill and therefore younger pets don’t need pet insurance, but we know from the patients we see each day that that is not the case.
In fact, the younger your pet is when you insure them the better, as it means you are less likely to have any existing conditions, which may not be covered by the policy and you can then receive more help covering the cost of any future treatment your pet needs.
It is important to note that not all pet insurance is the same. There are many different types of policy available and the level of cover provided can vary considerably.

As you can see from the information above, the type of policy you choose can have implications for the veterinary care of your pet and the costs you will face, so it’s important to choose the right cover.

Unlike other forms of insurance it is not easy to switch pet insurance in the future as any pre-existing conditions your pet has are likely to be excluded, so it’s important to do your research and choose the right cover from the start.
