Did you know that 1 in 3 pets may require unexpected veterinary treatment each year?

Whilst advances in veterinary medicine mean we can do more for your pet, treatment costs can soon mount up. There are a number of insurance companies to help cover unexpected vets bills.

You may be surprised to hear that you are more likely to claim on your pet insurance than your car or household policies. In fact, in our experience if you are one the few people who 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. Don’t just shop around on price alone.

When choosing a plan, ensure that:

  • Your pets are covered for life ie guarantee your veterinary fees cover is renewed each year no matter how much you claim.
  • Make sure there are no exclusions at renewal, so on-going conditions such as skin allergies continue to be covered by the policy

We will continue to ensure that preventative healthcare remains affordable to our clients, and for everything else that it covered by insurance, we will consider dealing direct with your insurance company for payment*
Please e-mail for any queries. We have a 3 week turnaround for claims to be processed, although they are often completed sooner.

Direct Insurance

We know that times are hard at the moment, and a large bill for treatment to your pet is the last thing you need. If you have valid insurance & meet certain criteria, we may be able to assist you by covering the cost of the treatment until your insurance company pays out.

The Criteria

You must have valid insurance with one of our selected insurers (includes most of the well known insurance companies)
Your pet must have been with us for at least 6 months.
The cost of treatment must exceed £500
You must be willing to pay a small admin fee (£15.30) and your excess at the time of completing the paperwork.
You must be 18 years of age or over.

How it works

Rather than you paying your bill and then claiming back the money we will cover your outstanding balance until your insurance company makes the payment direct to us. All we ask is that you pay a small admin fee and your excess (your insurance company won’t pay this) prior to treatment. You will need to show us your current insurance policy and speak to your insurance company directly to give them permission to discuss your policy with ourselves. We will then take on all the paper work and therefore all the hassle away from you.

Important note

If your insurance company does not pay out in part or full, then that is a matter between you and your insurance company, and money due to us is payable on receipt of our statement.
