Why do I need pet insurance?
One in three pets may require unexpected veterinary treatment each year (source: Petplan). While advances in veterinary medicine mean vets can do more for your pet, treatment costs can soon mount up. At Teckels we believe that pet insurance is an important part of responsible pet ownership, allowing owners to go ahead with veterinary treatment at the earliest opportunity knowing that help is there for the unexpected costs.
Which type of policy should I choose?
It is important to be aware that not all pet insurance is the same. Some policies limit the amount of time or money that you can claim for. Don't just shop around on price alone because the cheapest deal may not provide the right cover and may cost you more in the long term.
Which pet insurance does Teckels recommend?
At Teckels we recommend Petplan insurance for the following reasons:
- With Petplan's 'Covered for Life' guarantee your veterinary fees cover is renewed each year no matter how much you claim.
- Petplan doesn't place exclusions at renewal on their 'Covered for Life' policy so ongoing conditions such as eczema continue to be covered by the policy.
- Petplan won't increase your premium or excess just because you make a claim.
- Petplan is a pet insurance specialist so they understand the animal market and work closely with vets, charities and breeders. In fact, Petplan supports Teckels by donating 10% of all premiums generated by us to our charity.
