Why do I need Pet Insurance?

Having a pet is very rewarding but if they suffer an illness or injury it can also be expensive. Just like microchipping, pet insurance is an important part of looking after a pet and having insurance means you can concentrate on what’s best for your pet instead of worrying about the cost of unexpected veterinary treatment.

Choosing the right pet insurance:

There are a variety of different pet insurance policies available and they are not all the same. It is vital that you choose your policy wisely and understand the level of cover provided for your pet.


Petplan® offers a range of policies from the 12-month Essential cover to lifetime Covered For Life® policies. The type of plan you choose may depend on your budget, the type of pet you own or the amount of vet fees cover you think you may need. A consideration may also be whether you want a time-limited policy, or a lifetime policy which provides cover for long-term and recurring conditions. Petplans's Covered For Life® policies are designed to provide cover for ongoing conditions, such as eczema or diabetes, year after year, for as long as the policy is renewed.
