Pet Insurance is a very important consideration when owning a pet. It is also very difficult to choose as there are so many companies offering policies and so many different policies to choose from.
Advances in veterinary medicine mean that we now have access to a wider range of diagnostic and treatment technologies offering the best possible care for your pet. These treatment options can sometimes be expensive. Pet insurance allows for monthly budgeting and takes away the worry when it comes to paying for unexpected treatments.
Westport Veterinary Clinic would always recommend Lifetime Unlimited policies. These policies do what they say and cover your pet for any treatments claimed for their lifetime so long as you renew the policy every year without any breaks in payments.
Annual renewal policies are also offered which can offer cover for a specific condition during that policy year then exclude it the next year when the policy is renewed. These policies can sometimes also cover a specific condition up to a certain value and then exclude it thereafter.
Pet Insurance is something very worthwhile but we would always advise to shop wisely and read the small print. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for advice.
