Is pet insurance worth having?

Last Updated on

Britain’s pet lovers are quite willing, according to one British newspaper poll, to put their money where their mouth is and shell out considerable funds for the comfort and well-being of the furry members of their family. Yet, less than half of these pet lovers have opted for pet insurance, perhaps regarding it as faddish and not necessary, when in fact facing a pet’s illness can result in staggering costs. Some research is required to ensure that those diseases most common with one’s breed of dog, for example, are covered. Insurance can be for the pet’s lifetime, or renewed annually.

Key Takeaways:

  • The UK is a nation of animal lovers, but also a nation of extremely generous animal lovers.
  • Brits spend £6bn – a year – on household pets!
  • Given this affection, it is surprising that 56% of owners don’t have any insurance for their furry friends — read on to learn more about insuring your loved pets!

“There are two main types of pet insurance; lifetime cover – which is the most comprehensive as your pet will be covered for as long as it lives, provided you renew with the same insurer each year – and annual cover, which lasts for 12 months.”
