NHS DISCOUNT OFFERS PET INSURANCE
Pets have always been important members of our families so it is well worth giving them the protection they deserve. Pet insurance is the equivalent of our health insurance, providing owners with the peace of mind that they can get the treatment they require in the event of an emergency.
It has been a growing industry over the past decade and has become a staple for the majority of pet owners. Anyone who has ever needed treatment for their pet without insurance can vouch how expensive it can be and whilst they’re happy to have a healthy pet, it can make a significant impact on your finances.
So what does pet insurance cover? Of course policies will differ between providers, but insurance covers basic exams and other medical activities to a limited degree. These policies vary in that they can have an annual limit or you can opt for a lifetime limit where possible.
We’d actually go as far to say that you might want to look at pet insurance prior to investing in a pet. This is because different breeds or species can be more costly than others.
Here are some of the basics to consider when looking at pet insurance:
When To Insure
The best time to begin insurance (both for your pets wellbeing and affordability) is when they are young. This is because there isn’t likely to be a pre-existing or age-related health condition that would usually significantly drive insurance rates up. As puppies and other young pets haven’t developed a strong immune system early on, this makes them more vulnerable than adults and having early insurance in the event of illness is a wise decision.
