The Importance of Insuring Your Special Friend 

listening dogHere at Dore and Totley we recommend Petplan as the UK's No.1 Pet insurance provider.

Did you know 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. We recommend Petplan to all our clients to help cover unexpected vets bills. While Petplan will not cover you for preventative treatments such as routine vaccination and parasite treatments it is always there to help should the unexpected happen be it illness or accident.

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 of the few people who don't need to claim on your pet insurance you really are very lucky indeed!

Don't just shop around on price alone.

Ask the following key questions so you clearly understand what each policy does and does not cover. Listen carefully to what they have to say:

  • Will the policy cover my pet for on-going conditions (e.g. eczema or anything which once developed will always be a problem) into its old age? 
  • Will exclusions be placed at renewal for an illness that occurred in the previous year (this can often happen with annual policies)?
  • Will my excess or premium increase if I make a claim? 
  • Will the policy cover: congenital and hereditary illness, hip-related conditions, dental treatment or behavioral conditions?
