I’ve covered my pets with Petplan Pet Insurance for years and wouldn’t use any other insurer. Petplan helped me pay for the treatment of my cat who had a tumour on his liver, he had most of it removed then had to have regular medication after the operation which was paid for. The operation gave him another 3 years of life. Sadly it returned and he has now passed away.
If I hadn’t had insurance at the time, I wouldn’t have been able to afford the treatment. I now have vet’s fees paid for the ongoing treatment of my dog’s allergies which he will need for the rest of his life.
Over the last 36 years, millions of pet owners have entrusted Petplan to look after their pets and their pockets when things go wrong. Since entering the market in 1976, Petplan has continued to specialise in pet insurance and has been committed to providing the best policies and great customer service. As the UK’s favourite pet insurance provider Petplan is there to help cover the cost of veterinary treatment when the unexpected happens.
The Benefits of Pet Insurance
For many pet owners, having pet insurance is just one of the many elements of pet care – just as feeding, grooming and exercise. Animals are just as susceptible to illness and injuries as their owners and in Petplan’s experience, 1 in 3 pets will make an unexpected trip to the vet each year.
The risks associated with owning your pet are not restricted purely to injuries and illnesses. In the event that your pet is lost or stolen you may want to advertise for its safe return and offer a reward to the individual who found it. Pet insurance can also help cover the cost of boarding kennel/cattery fees if you are hospitalised or even help with legal costs if your dog causes an accident resulting in third party damage or injury. Petplan can provide cover for all these things and more, giving you peace of mind when it comes to your four-legged friend’s well-being.
Covered for Life
Petplan has developed market-leading pet insurance policies to meet the needs of today’s pet owners – including 3 ‘genuine’ lifetime policy options. Whether you choose Petplan Classic with either £4,000 or £7,000 vet fees cover or Petplan Ultimate with £12,000 vet fees cover, you can be sure that the policy will provide lifetime protection to help with the cost of treatment for injuries and illnesses*.
*As long as you renew your policy annually without a break in cover
Covered for Life policies are designed for owners seeking a policy that provides extensive cover throughout the lifetime of their pet. Treatment for lifetime conditions such as heart disorders or diabetes can easily run into thousands of pounds over the course of your pet’s life, so it is important to have the right type of policy in place before that first trip to the vet.
Petplan’s time-limited policy, Petplan Essential, offers you valuable cover against the cost of veterinary treatment should your pet get into scrapes or become unwell. Petplan Essential provides up to £3,000 vet fees cover for each illness or injury for up to 12 months of treatment (from when the injury happened or the illness was first noticed). The policy will also provide up to £500 of complementary treatment for each condition to help pay for specialist treatment if required. With no upper age limit, Petplan Essential also offers valuable cover for older pets and is a popular product for owners whose pets are heading into old age.
