Pet insurance – Do you need it?
Pet insurance is a safety net to help protect you against unexpected costs related to your pet. The most obvious reason to have insurance on your cat or dog is to cover veterinary bills.
The average pet insurance claim is £720, but claims can run into the thousands if your pet develops an on-going condition.
Covering expensive and unexpected vet bills is the main reason people take out pet insurance. It can cover a wide range of veterinary treatments, but you should carefully check your policy to understand exactly what can be claimed for, how much you will get and for how long.
