Looking after pet family members if they become sick needs to be planned for in advance.
With all the massive advances in veterinary medicine and surgery these days, we can often work apparent miracles, but there is nearly always a significant cost involved.
Some people have a pet savings fund in their bank accounts to cover possible future treatment costs, but even that may not cover long term conditions and referral fees for more serious conditions. Bills of several thousand pounds are unfortunately not uncommon these days and that can be where appropriate specific pet insurance comes in. The premiums may still appear significant, but have to be pitched against what happens if we don’t have the money to cover treatment costs? Having to decide to have a family pet put to sleep simply for lack of money is utterly heartbreaking for all concerned.
Please read the small print for any insurance policies you do take out and be sure you know what you are buying, especially whether it is a 12 month policy, a maximum benefit policy, or a Cover for Life policy.
