Dog Insurance Policies

They say a dog is man’s best friend, and dog owners will certainly agree that is the case. From energetic dogs like Springer Spaniels and Labradors, to toy breeds like Pugs, dogs become a huge part of our lives. While you will do your utmost to keep your dog out of harm’s way accidents do happen, and having a dog insurance policy can help you with unexpected vet’s bills and much more besides.

We provide puppy insurance from 4 weeks of age and we have no upper age limit for our dog insurance. We have nine policies to choose from, with varying levels of cover, starting at just £3.00.

Our website has plenty of content to see you through puppyhood to life with your dog as they mature. Our step-by-step guides can help you prepare yourself for some of the experiences that dog ownership throws at you from taking your dog for walks to introducing your dog to a new baby. Not only that, but we also support numerous dog charities all over the world, from Dogs Trust in the UK to NOWZAD in Afghanistan.

Our Insurance Policies Explained

LT

Lifetime Policy

Our most comprehensive range of policies, our Lifetime Cover will help with the cost of veterinary fees required to treat illness, and injuries from accidents. Where an illness requires treatment for many years, such as prostate disease, it will be covered year after year up to the relevant annual condition limit each year, which will vary depending on which policy you choose. Prices for Lifetime dog cover starts from as little as £5.50 per month.

TL

Time Limited Policy

Our Time-Limited policies cover accidents and illnesses for 365 days from the date the condition first manifested itself, i.e. from when symptoms were first apparent, or when the accident in question occurred. After the 365 days have elapsed that condition will no longer be covered and exclusions will be applied. Our Time-Limited policies carry additional benefits. Prices for Time-Limited dog insurance policies start from £4.00 per month.

AO

Accident Only Policy

The most economical option, our Accident Only policy will offer cover for veterinary fees if your dog incurs an injury as a result of an accident. You won’t be covered for any illnesses. There are no added policy benefits to this policy. Prices start at £3.00 per month.

For further information please refer to Policy Wording and Key Facts.


How Do I Pay?

In order to make payment quick and easy, we now accept card payments and PayPal when you pay your premium as a single annual payment. If you prefer, you can choose our monthly direct debit option.
