Getting the most from dog insurance

Our usual focus for this blog is of course on the myriad of topics around health insurance for people – however, as this is an ‘overall’ insurance blog we thought it may be useful to focus on the topic of dog insurance.

Peace of mind for you and your dog

We love dogs, but we are all too aware that their inquisitive nature of man’s best friend can get them into some potentially dangerous situations, which unfortunately can lead to consequences requiring some financial outlay. This is where a dog insurance plan can help to at least give you peace of mind should your dog require help of some kind.

Dog insurance policies - what they include

In line with the rest of the health insurance sector, there are differences between each dog insurance policy offered by the top insurers: including PetPlan, Animal Friends, Buddies and the RSPCA. What we would say is that there are a few key policy strands that you should insure are in place when considering a dog policy, these can be:

  • Complementary treatment
  • Help with behavioural problems 
  • Overseas vet fees
  • Personal liability
  • Dental care for your dog
  • Minding services
  • Kennel fees if there's an emergency
  • Vets fees in general

Shop around for dog insurance

As insurance experts advise, when considering taking out any sort of policy - its best to shop around. Get a dog insurance quote from a number of sources before making your final decision.

Are there any key elements that we have missed?
What dog policy do you consider to be the best?
