Dog and Cat Insurance

Help to look after your beloved dog or cat for our existing home insurance customers

Pets aren’t just animals, they’re an important part of the family. And if something should happen to your cat or dog, the last thing you’d want to be worrying about is vet’s bills.

That’s why our Dog and Cat Insurance covers vet’s fees after an accident, as well as illness or disease. Plus, it protects you against their loss, so you can concentrate on taking care of them.

We also include alternative treatments should a vet recommend them and we’ll cover costs if you need to pay for professional rescue or recovery. We’ve got years of experience looking after pets – talk to us about first-class cover for yours, and peace of mind for you.

  • 300 local branches offering personal, tailored care
  • No quibble claims
  • No admin fees for changes to your policy and no charges on Direct Debit, credit or debit card payments

Cover for older pets

After your pets’ 10th birthday, cover for your pet will be reduced. This means they’ll only be protected after an accident, not against illness or disease. All cover will then stop after their 15th birthday.

If you opt for our Permanent Health extension, cover will not be reduced and we will continue to provide insurance for your dog or cat’s lifetime.

The cover you need

  • Vet's fees cover up to £2,000 per incident following an accident – and for illness or disease that appears after 14 days from the start of your policy
  • Option to increase vet's fees to £3,000 or £4,000
  • Up to 60 days foreign travel
  • Professional rescue or recovery costs up to £750

We can explain what limits and exclusions apply, so you can ensure the cover is right for you – or take a look at our policy reference booklet for more details.
