Pet insurance is offered through Co‑op Insurance Services and underwritten by Allianz Insurance plc.
Millions of people across the UK consider their pet a part of the family. Pet insurance is there to cover you if they have an injury, illness or accident that needs veterinary treatment.
You pay a monthly or annual premium and pet insurance will cover the costs of the treatment needed, minus any excesses. Some of the key reasons to buy pet insurance are:
Vet fees can range between £400 - £8,000 depending on the size and breed of your pet.
Knowing that you are covered for what can be a large unexpected bill.
If you choose a lifetime cover policy your pet will be covered for treatment to any illnesses or injuries up to a certain amount every year.
