Our usual focus for this blog is of course on the myriad of topics around health insurance for people – however, as this is an ‘overall’ insurance blog we thought it may be useful to focus on the topic of pet insurance, specifically for your dog.
As much as we love our dogs, the adventurous nature of ‘man’s best friend’ can sometimes land him in serious trouble! – therefore, in line with the basic ethos behind all insurance policies, dog insurance is designed to give you (the owner) a little peace of mind should something unwanted befall your canine companion.
What to look for in a dog insurance policy
Similarly to the wider health insurance offerings, there are small differences between what the main pet insurance companies will offer your dog. There are however, a number of key elements that you should insure are offered from any policy you decide to take out, these include:
- Vets fees
- Complementary treatment
- Dealing with dog behavioral problems
- Vet fees if you are overseas
- Personal liability
- Treatment for dental problems
- Daily minding services
- Emergency kennel fees
As all insurance experts advise, when considering taking out any sort of policy – its best to shop around. Get a dog insurance quote from a number of sources before making your final decision.
Are there any requirements that we may have missed?
Is there a particular dog insurance policy out there that you feel is the best?
