you would be better off putting your money away in a pet back every month say £10 a month and make sure you do it, then use that if and when needed.... my OH has paid £4000 for 3 cats over the last 12-13 years and claimed £700 for one of the cats, and still had to pay at least £500 out of her own money for them as normally you cant claimn for anything under £100 so its just not worth it as chances are if something happens to it will be less then a £100 vet bill anyway, and if not the money you put away could pay for it... if that makes sence

Can't recommend anyone specific, but don't forget quidco - there are a few deals on there for pet insurance. Can you use a site like go compare for pet insurance to check out good deals?

You need to read the small print & be sure about what exactly you're paying for & what you'll actually get if you pet does become ill. Have a read of this & it may help you decide what sort of policy is right for you:

I always used to buy the cheapest quote I could get, but after I spent a bit of time looking into it I decided to spend a few quid more each month & get lifetime insurance. At the end of the day all insurance is 'just in case'.

yes thats what i do, i always go for a lifetime rather than a policy for 12 months and asda offer this with their think its superior cover and the excess was lower than most.(forgot to say in my earlier post i pay just over £10 a month for asda's top insurance policy

We're with Petplan now as our yellow lab is coming up for 10 and it was pretty much the only place we could get a halfway decent policy for an older dog with the lifetime bit thrown in!

Chuckles1001 has given some advice that I personally wouldn't take. My sister's choccie lab cost them an absolute fortune...he had MAJOR skin problems due to allergies and he wasn't insured and they had to fork out thousands on tests, treatments and the like.

All it needs is one accident say a broken leg or if you have a puppy that likes to eat things and it will cost you a small fortune in vets bills. Better to be covered I say!

Petplan will normally give you 4 or 6 weeks free insurance - ask at your vets, they usually set it all up for you when you go for your first lot of jabs!
