If your pet becomes unwell diagnostic tests and treatment can become very expensive, easily running into thousands of pounds. Unfortunately there is no pet NHS and as a guardian of your pet it is your responsibility to cover the cost of any necessary care.
To help with this we recommend pet insurance or a savings account specifically for your pet. We always hope our pets won’t need it; but it is much better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
We can claim on pet insurance for treatment at home the same as a traditional vets. As a small business we cannot function with a large number of unpaid bills and so we cannot routinely claim direct from insurance companies.
Filing insurance claims take quite a lot of time and often some cost for printing and posting and so we do charge an admin fee of £10 per claim submitted.
