Just like humans, pets can develop long term or recurring illnesses such as diabetes or arthritis, that require regular and long term treatment, in some cases for the rest of the pet's life.
Our Lifetime plans cover ongoing veterinary fees for the life of your pet, as long as the policy is renewed each year and the appropriate premium is received.

Dogs and cats are very much part of family life and protecting your pets against the unexpected can certainly help cover any unexpected incidences. Insuring your pet can protect against any unforeseen costs that may arise and with the cost of vets fees continuing to rise insurance is well worth taking into consideration.
Our standard cover can provide protection for a limited period of time following illness or injury to your cat or dog. Insuring your pet can be expensive, however time limited cover is ideal for customers with a smaller budget who still wish to protect their loved one.
Our Standard cover (Non-Lifetime) is a fixed-term contract of insurance which renews each policy term and provides essential Vet’s Fees cover up to £4000 per policy period for each illness or injury up to 365 days from the date that the pet first displayed clinical signs of the illness/injury. Standard cover also features many more benefits including cover for Loss by Theft or Straying, Death by Accident or Illness and Public Liability for dogs.
With our Accident Only policy, cover is provided if your pet is involved in an accident for the proper veterinary charges following treatment given by a qualified vet, or a qualified practitioner recommended by a vet, during the Policy Term including physiotherapy, treatment and referral.
This plan only covers vets fees following accidental injury; it does not provide the range of benefits offered by our other plans. Please see the Policy Benefits page for details
