Dog health insurance

Looking after a dog is a big job, caring for them, feeding them, is all part of it, but one part you can’t prevent is them checking any illnesses. All dogs can pick illnesses up easily, off you, off visitors and off other dogs, so getting dog health insurance is a good idea. Dog health insurance won’t just provide you cover for any illnesses that they might pick up but it will also give you cover if they need treatment for bites, stings, cuts, injuries and falls, which is why a good dog health insurance cover is needed.

So how do you know what is a good cover? Well the only way to find out is to shop around, there are some many insurance companies out there and now the supermarkets do pet insurance too, so finding the best dog health insurance for you and your pooch might take awhile – but it will be well worth it.

What do you need to look for in a good insurance policy? Well a lot of the insurance policies will offer cover to a number of similar things, the main difference you will see between them if the amount of money you can claim for and extra bits of cover, like third party insurance and overseas travel costs – the bits that aren’t necessarily essential to everyone. Dog health insurance tends to include; up to a certain amount of money per condition to cover vet fees, money towards a reward or advertising if your dog is missing/stolen, death from illness or accident. How much money you can claim for, for these will all vary for each company and the level of your policy. A number of companies offer different levels of policies, some offer two for example, value and premium and others have 3 levels, value, standard and premium. Either way from taking the time to shop around you will be able to find the best dog health insurance cover for you and your pooch.
