With all our Pups, you will have your own Pet Plan Insurance Policy in place, you will receive your policy number direct from Pet Plan. This is free for 28 days, and if you carry it on and renew it before it lapses, you will receive a further month free, at whatever level you choose, which means two free months for your first twelve months insurance. Our cover is typically higher than a vet issued Pet Plan policy cover, our breeder policy is up to £4,000 and no wait period and is the highest level of cover available. We issue it as standard with all our pups, and covers for unplanned eventualities.
Why should I insure my pet?
In recent years, veterinary medicine has become increasingly more advanced. It is possible to diagnose and treat conditions that in the past would have been left undetected, with sometimes fatal consequences. But this more advanced treatment can be expensive.
One of the hardest positions pet owners can find themselves in is being unable to afford treatment costs. As a result, the owner may have to opt for a less effective treatment option, or a less effective treatment option. That's where pet insurance can provide that peace of mind, so that you do not have to make these difficult decisions, allowing you to focus on caring for your pet.
Why is it important to choose the right insurance?
Once you decide to buy pet insurance, the key is to focus on buying the 'right' pet insurance. It's extremely important to get this right from the outset as in our experience, if you don't purchase the right policy early on you may struggle to switch to a better policy at a later date. This is because changing insurer could result in a break in cover and may mean conditions you have claimed for previously become pre-existing.
As with all insurance, premiums vary significantly and depend on a number of different factors. It is important to select an insurance policy that provides a long-term commitment to the health and happiness of your pet, but is also convenient for you.
Which plan and insurance is right for you?
We use Petplan insurance as they offer a true lifetime policy and cover more things like dental and hereditary conditions as standard, making it no surprise that they are the UKs no.1 pet insurance provider.
There are two main plans which Petplan provide, one being a 12 month plan called Essential, and the other being their lifetime plan called Covered For Life®.
We specifically recommend Petplan's Covered For Life policies as you don't have to worry about your cover reducing when you claim, as veterinary fees cover renews each year no matter how often you claim, as long as you renew your policy each year with no break in cover.
