The first requirement for taking out dog insurance is details of your dog. There are many types of insurance policies available and your final quote will be influenced by the breed of your dog, when your dog was born, how much you paid for your dog, and whether or not your dog has been tagged, for example.
We will need to know if your dog has had any vaccinations, if your dog has been neutered, as well as any specific details about previous health conditions. Such factors could affect your final quote and total cost of your dog insurance policy.
By providing as much information as possible, we can help you find the best policy for your pooch.
It largely depends on the policy you have in mind, and how much you would like to pay. From multi-dog insurance packages to specific third party coverage, you have a lot to choose from. Some choose to pay for a cover-all-bases package, while others prefer policies with benefits specific to their situation. We help you compare our panel of providers by recommending trusted companies offering the policies you need.
Large vet bills are the reason why most people take out dog insurance. The majority of policies will cover vet costs, from accidents to illnesses.
It depends on the policy you choose. Vet bills can be costly, but it will almost always be significantly more than the cost of your policy. You may find that treatments for certain conditions are covered in some policies but not in others.
There are also varying dog insurance costs based on breed, so if your breed is particularly susceptible to a particular illness then that is something you need to think about.
In the unfortunate event of your dog passing away by illness or by injury, many providers will cover you. If at a certain age your dog passes away because of an illness, then your coverage might be called into question. Most reputable companies should cover you if your dog sadly has to be put down.
Third-party cover is also known as liability cover and it covers you in the event of your dog injuring someone or damaging their property. Third-party cover provides the amount needed for sufficient reparations up to £1 million or more.
There are some general recommendations we can provide that will help you reduce your costs to keep them as cheap as possible. Of course, you can’t always put a price on your dog’s health and wellbeing so you need to think hard about the breed of your dog, its lifestyle, and the other details we mentioned earlier.
Perhaps the best way of keeping your dog insurance policy costs down is to choose a policy with clear advantages to you, so that you don’t end up paying for a policy with features that, in reality, probably don’t apply to you.
It pays to shop around to get the best policy for you. You really don’t want to pay for coverage that doesn’t add value or make sense. Don’t rush it and do your research. Look into average dog insurance premiums by breed and if you see a policy you do like, make sure you read it to understand what is not covered by that specific dog insurance policy before you commit.
With up to £20 cashback, you could save some real money on your dog insurance when you run a quote with Quidco Compare.
Your dog’s health will affect your premiums, so you will save money simply by taking care of your dog with a recommended diet and lots of exercise.
By law, you are required to have your dog microchipped if you are the owner. At the very least, this will lower your premiums. You will also be rejected for insurance if your dog is not microchipped.
If you have more than one dog, insuring your dogs on the same policy can save you money and you may even get a discount for each dog added to the policy.
There is no one size fits all. It all depends on the needs of you and your dog. While your dog might only require the most basic policy, another may require something more specialist that an entirely different company comes recommended for. Medication can be costly, and surgery even more so.
Comparing dog health insurance is the best way to ensure you pay for exactly what you need (even if you don’t need it right now). There is a fine line between services you don’t need now, and services you will never need. The key is to do your research and shop around. Know your breed and take care of your dog’s health.
