What is pet insurance and why do I need it?

A policy specifically for your cat or dog, it protects the furriest (and arguably most adorable) member of your family. It could help you to avoid unexpected and costly vet bills and ensure your cuddly companion is looked after when they need it most.

Got more than one cat or dog? You can cover multiple pets at the same time with a multi-pet policy.

If nothing else, having cover in place could give you peace of mind in the knowledge that your cat or dog could be covered for injury or illness. The average vet bill now costs around £300, according to the Association of British Insurers, and some complex treatments can cost up to £4,000.

Our pets are an extension of the family; they can be adorable, cute and funny, and they're also the protectors of our home. There is no NHS for cats and dogs, so finding the right cover for them ensures that vet bills are less of a problem.

What does it cover?

Policies could include cover for:

  • Accidents and injuries

  • Unexpected illnesses

  • Boarding fees (should you have to spend more than 4 consecutive days in hospital)

  • Third party liability

  • Advertising and reward - if your cat or dog goes missing

Some policies might exclude:

  • Any preventative, non-essential treatments or tests such as neutering

  • Dental treatment

  • Treatments or operations for pre-existing conditions
