Insurance for older dogs

As dogs age, insurance becomes more expensive. Sometimes it can be difficult to get insured at all. If your dog is over 8 years old then they’re classed as senior pet. We don’t have an age limit for cover so let us see how we can protect your canine friend no matter their age.

Pedigree dog insurance

Pedigree dogs are more susceptible to health conditions and therefore it may prove useful to be covered in the event that your pedigree or purebred dog requires veterinary treatment.

We can currently insure over 300 pedigree dogs as well as a number of common crossbreeds.
