Why choose our dog insurance?

Dogs are just like us, really. They can be a little accident prone and get ill from time to time. If that happens, dog insurance can give you added peace of mind and help with unexpected costs along the way.
Multi-pet savings

Receive a 10% multi-pet discount for each pet that you insure on the same policy with our multi-pet discount.

New customer benefits

If you're a new MORE THAN customer, you can enjoy a welcome 25% off online discount. 

Claims made easy

When times get tough, we can help with our easy claims process. Ask your vet to assist with your claims form and, if they agree, we can pay them directly.

Dog health experts available 24/7

If you have any questions or concerns about your pet, you have freephone access to qualified veterinary nurses any time, any day with vetfone.

Multiple discounts applied consecutively.

Our dog insurance cover levels

We offer four different cover levels for you to choose from.

Your price will increase at renewal, because as your pet gets older they're more likely to get ill. A claim being paid can also cause your renewal price to increase significantly. Your excess will increase when your pet turns 9.

Protect your furry friend

You can expect some great cover as standard with your dog insurance.

For when they need more care

If your dog isn't feeling themselves and your vet recommends alternative treatments, such as physiotherapy or hydrotherapy through a qualified practitioner, our complementary treatments cover may support you both throughout their recovery. This is included with our Basic, Classic and Premier cover levels.

For when they need more protection

If your dog gets into mischief, it's reassuring to know you're both covered against damage to other humans and their property with our third party liability cover if you are found legally responsible. You'll find this included in all 4 of our cover levels.

For when they need more time to relax

The safety of your dog is important to us, whether you're jet setting or at home. We'll cover your dog for healthcare and emergency costs within certain European countries for added peace of mind when travelling abroad together. This is included with our Classic and Premier cover, or as an optional extra on our Basic cover.

For when they need more floss

We'll get your dog back to chewing their favourite toy in no time. Dental care is covered with our Premier cover level, if your pet has had their teeth checked and any vet treatment carried out in the 12 months before a condition starts. Accidental dental damage is covered with all 4 of our cover levels.
