Insurance

Recommended Posts

Suppose how well bred your dog is maybe help in deciding whether you need a premium or basic policy. . . . Heinz 57 variety should be fairly strong health wise but a pedigree one maybe more at risk of health issues, however, the both will need stitches after a run in with barbed wire

We put £50/month into a seperate account for our Dogs and discussed the fact that we have no insurance with our Vet. I'm fairly certain that we get a special rate because the Vet knows he isn't being paid by a large company and he has done several exploratory examinations/Scans and we have had consultations with him several times and he simply hasn't charged us at all - might be an option depending on how well you know your Vet?

Is it going to be a working dog? A lot of the common insurers don’t cover working dogs.

Depending on your cash situation it may be best going with dogs trust £25 a year for public liability and using savings where necessary. 

Otherwise I understand about £60 a month is fairly standard.

anyone done a claim on such an injury.

Looked at ; Bought by Many they seem to be the most competitive at the mo ,monthly payments go up or down on how much of an excess you are willing to pay

Kennel club insurance doesn't cover working dogs.

 

PetPlan does and have been great for me, one dog had a £6,000 bill 18 months ago and they paid it without question and the policy hardly increased the following year.
