We recommend pet insurance to give you peace of mind when your pet is ill. Please don’t wait until your pet has been diagnosed with a problem. Once a condition is pre-existing it is too late to get any benefit for this disorder from your pet insurance. One of the conditions most commonly claimed for is skin allergies and tick paralysis.
Although we do not recommend one particular pet insurance company we are able to sign-up any cat or dog from 8 weeks of age to 12 months of age for 4weeks FREE COVER whilst you do your research and decide which insurance company is best for you.
