COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – an update for our clients.

Our recommended pet insurance partner

Did you know that 1 in 3 pets might require unexpected veterinary treatment each year? Whilst medical and surgical advances mean our vets at Best Friends Vets can do more for your pet, treatment costs soon mount up.

For that reason we recommend Petplan insurance to all our clients to help cover treatment for illness and injury (and to complement our Pet Health Plan) because:

  • 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 on going 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.

Try before you buy

Not all pet insurance is the same so before you purchase a policy either:

  1. Contact us for personal help in choosing the right policy.
  2. Use our Try Before You Buy service where you can get 4 weeks’ free cover when you quote our practice reference number
  3. Skip straight to the Petplan website where you can find out more about their range of policies and get a quote
