Why's dog insurance so important?
We know your dog's part of the family, but there's no NHS for pets. When dogs get ill or hurt themselves in an accident it can cost hundreds or thousands of pounds to put them right again.
Repeat vet trips, cleaning and antibiotics for ear infections could cost several hundred pounds, while a surgery for something like a hip replacement could be in excess of £5,000.
If your dog's not insured, you'll have to find that money yourself.
That's where pet insurance comes in. You'll pay a sum of money monthly or annually so that your beloved hound can get the treatment they need, when they need it.
Pet insurance can pay out for other kinds of claims too, like behavioural issues, your dog going missing, or care for them if you need to unexpectedly go into hospital yourself.
And if your dog's insured when they develop a condition, some pet insurance will continue to cover that illness for the life of the pet, as long as you renew each year. All our policies work like that.
Dog insurance that can last a lifetime
Once your dog's covered you’ll have a single limit for vet fees. You can claim up to this limit for all conditions every year. When you renew, it resets so it won’t run out if you have to claim for something throughout your dog’s lifetime.
You can choose the right cover for you from our range of lifetime dog insurance policies.
Our Complete policy is one of the most comprehensive pet insurance policies in the UK and has:
- £15,000 of vet fee cover a year
- Dental illness cover as standard
- High limits for loss and theft
We also have a choice of Regular and Value policies:
- Regular has up to £7,000 vet fee cover and you can choose to pay no excess if your dog's under nine years old
- Or go for a Value policy to cover the basics with £3,000 of vet fee cover a year
You can add our MoneyBack option to most policies too. MoneyBack pays back 20% of your annual premium if you haven't made a claim in your policy year.
We want to help your pet have a long, happy life, so we offer more than insurance. Our customers have free vet video calls through FirstVet and a discount on a flea treatment subscription delivered to your door by VetBox.
We’re always looking at how we can do more for pets and owners so we can be there when your dog needs us most.
The service they provide is brillliaaant!
The reviews were great and the cover was better than any other I could find. We’ve used the policy for the video vet call when Shirley had a lump on the back of her neck, it was so quick and easy.
Dog insurance for pre-existing medical conditions
All of our policies cover conditions that haven’t needed treatment, medication or vet advice for at least two years.
But if your pet has been to the vet more recently and you’re trying to get cover for the condition we have a policy that might be able to help.
Our Pre-existing policy covers pre-existing medical conditions as long as your pet hasn't received treatment, medication or advice for them in the three months before your policy starts.
You’ll have £500 for all pre-existing conditions in your first year of cover. If you don’t need to claim for them this limit increases to £1,000 in your second year. After that, if you haven’t needed to claim for the pre-existing issues, you’ll have the full £7,000 of lifetime vet fee cover that the policy offers for all new conditions.
How much is dog insurance?
In the UK, the cost of insuring your dog can depend on:
- Your pet's breed
- Their age
- Where you live
- The policy you choose
On our Value policy with £3,000 of lifetime vet fee cover, 10% of dog owners paid £14.11 a month in January 2022.
That rose to £25.84 for our Complete policy, but that means just over £10 a month extra for some of the most comprehensive pet insurance cover in the UK, including:
- £15,000 vet fee cover a year
- Dental cover for accidents and illness
- Cover while travelling abroad with your dog
- Cover if they’re lost or stolen

You can compare our policies, choose extra features and set your excess if your pet’s under nine.
If you have more than one pet you’ll get a multi-pet discount for pets on the same policy. Our multi-pet discount isn’t available on our Value 2k policy.
We also can help you save money on looking after your pet with discounts on a flea and tick treatment subscription and free pet house sitting for a year.
