Britain is a nation of animal lovers. Whether it’s man’s best friend, a furry feline, or a floppy-eared bunny rabbit that has won over your family’s collective heart, and secured pride of place in the middle of the sofa, pet insurance is a good idea for a number of reasons.
Owning a pet can be costly. It’s not just the price of pet food, bedding, toys that can tally up; it’s the price of unforeseen vet bills too. All pet owners are aware that there will be vaccinations to arrange, check ups to fund, but sometimes things can happen to your pet that come right out of the blue.
One minute your pet is curled up by your side, and the next they’ve taken a turn for the worse. If your pet suddenly gets ill, a trip to the vet will be high up on your agenda. But as any animal lover knows, vet bills can be incredibly expensive and sometimes there isn’t enough in the kitty (no pun intended) to pay up. If you’ve got pet insurance though, it could be a whole different story.
The other scenario is one that all pet owners dread – your pet is in an accident. Whether it’s been hit by a car or attacked by another animal, pet insurance can help with the costs of getting your pet back on track.
Pet insurance policies are available for dogs, cats, and rabbits – and can be arranged as single policies or as multi-pet policies too. What’s more, if you choose to buy a multi-pet insurance policy, you may benefit from a discount so it’s worth shopping around.
