Keeping up with your pet's health needs can become expensive. As Veterinary medicine becomes more and more advanced, certain medications are needed for life and some specialist operations and diagnostic work can run into the thousands.
As a result the market for pet insurance has become huge. It can be very confusing to know which company and then which policy is best for you and your circumstances. We do not offer our own insurance scheme and due to FSA restrictions are unable to advise you on financial matters. However, we do advise that your pets are insured and that your policy is suited to you and your pet. Often the cheaper premiums exclude many treatments and are only valid for 12 months; for example would not cover a heart condition in the second year. There are many companies offering complete life policies and these are the policies we would advise.
If pet insurance is not for you, many clients choose to set up a separate bank account for their pets with regular payments being made and use it as a bank of funds in times of need.
Whichever you decide on, planning for the future is important as there is no NHS for pets and very few charities in our area who are able to help.
