Does Pets at Home offer pet insurance?

Pets at Home does not offer its own pet insurance policies, but it recommends Petplan and you can buy policies by going through the pets at home website. Dogs, cats and rabbits can be covered.

The cover is identical to what you would get if you went directly to Petplan although if you get a quote through the Pets at Home website you'll see a Pets at Home logo on the Petplan quote page.
