What our Accident Only policy covers
Our Accident Only policy aims to protect your dog if they have an accident. It doesn’t cover you for any illnesses or diseases they might have.
If your dog has an accident, the policy offers £2,500 per year towards the cost of treating their injuries resulting from that accident. The £2,500 limit applies to each accident your dog might have, and there’s no limit to the number of accidents you can claim for.
So even if your dog is particularly accident prone, your policy should still protect them.
Each accident also has a lifetime limit of £15,000 – as long as you renew your policy. So you can keep making claims over multiple years of continuous cover if your dog needs long-term treatment for their injuries – as long as you don’t go over the £2,500 annual limit.

Pet insurance premiums increase as your pet gets older, as the chance of your pet becoming ill increases. Excesses apply to all our policies and a co-payment is currently payable on claims if you renew your policy after your dog turns 8 years old.
Has your dog been to the vet for anything other than routine vaccinations?
If your dog has been unwell or was injured before, this is known as a pre-existing condition. Pre-existing conditions aren't covered by our policies.
We consider a condition to be pre-existing if it was first noticed before your policy start date or within the waiting period, whether your pet needed treatment previously or not.
