How to claim
Claims made easy
You can claim online or by phone and there aren’t any paper claims forms to complete. We’ll even contact the vet for you. Log in to get started.
What happens next?
Our pack of claims hounds will get to work sorting your claim as quickly as they can.
If they find we need more information we can contact your vet to get it so you can focus on looking after your pet.
We'll keep you updated by text and email to let you know when it's paid or if there are any delays.
When you make the claim you can choose if you want us to pay you or your vet (as long as they've agreed to it), so when it's approved you know where the money is going.
Book a video call with a vet
If you're concerned about your pet you can also use FirstVet to speak to a UK-registered vet. ManyPets pet insurance customers have unlimited free access to FirstVet and it can be used 24/7 on a phone or tablet.
It's useful if you're unsure if your pet needs a trip to the vet or if you want expert advice on any accidents or illnesses.
The best service!
How long do I have to submit a claim?
You have up to one year from the vet's diagnosis or the date an accident happened to make a claim. We’ll not be able to pay claims submitted later. If you decide to cancel your policy, you’ll have 12 months to let us know of any treatments that took place before the cancellation date.
What if I need help with logging my claim?
Does ManyPets pay the vet direct?
Yes, we can pay you or your vet directly. Simply tick the box regarding who you would like us to pay, when submitting your claim.
We will pay the first vet that you have listed during your claim submission. You can enter up to two different vets.
If you would like us to pay a different vet – in the case of a referral, for example – then you can let us know in the comments box called ‘Almost there’ at the end.
It's a good idea to check with your vet that they will accept direct vet payments. Most of them do, however, its always best to check.
Do I need a claim form?
No need for a form, we’ll deal directly with your vets. All you need to do is submit a claim online.
How do I submit a continuation claim for an ongoing condition?
If your pet is receiving ongoing treatment, you can either claim as treatments take place or at the end as one large claim. All claims can be registered up to 12 months after the date of treatment or accident.
Making a continuation claim is easy, visit your account, create a new claim, select which claim it relates to and tell us how much you would like to claim for. Generally, we will only need an invoice for the most recent treatment your pet has received. If we require another copy of your pet’s medical history, we will reach out to you and your vet directly.
When can I make a claim?
What you need to know:
If you have switched from another insurer, and do not have a gap in cover, we can accept claims straight away as long as you can supply evidence of your previous insurance.

How do I make a claim on behalf of my client?
If you are a vet or specialist making a claim on behalf of your client, please call 0345 646 1213 (Monday-Friday 9 am-5 pm) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

ManyPets claims number
It's quick and easy to claim online but you can make a claim over the phone, just call 0333 130 4552.
Our claims handlers will ask about the claim and your vet’s contact information. After that, we’ll be able to process the claim. We won’t ask you to fill in any forms, which should speed up the process and make your life easier.
If you have your policy number and any receipts for treatment to hand when you call it can speed up the claim, but this information is not essential.
Once we’ve contacted your vet we’ll update you on how the claim is progressing via text message and email.
If the claim is approved we can pay you or the vet, whichever you prefer.
We don't currently offer pre-authorisation on claims.
What can’t I claim for
Pre Existing Conditions
Unless you have apre-existing policy, we can’t cover claims for pre-existing conditions. A pre-existing condition is something that your pet had treatment, medication, or advice (including anything a vet observed and recorded in your pet's clinical history) for in the 24 months before the date of treatment you are claiming for.
If your pet doesn't need treatment, medication, or advice for a condition for 24 months, we’ll no longer consider it pre-existing and you’ll be able to claim for it.
Routine Spaying and Neutering
If you decide to spay or neuter your pet, we are not able to pay your claim.
If your Vet recommends spaying or neutering due to a medical condition, we will happily review your claim.
