we use pet plan, theyve been great so far, we pay the first £65 they pay the rest, my cats have had multiple thousands of pounds operations, really very good!

Use this site & tailor to your own needs.

I wouldnt bother insuring the kittens though, but it's totally upto you

I'm not really a fan of money supermarket, as the price you see on there often isn't the price you'll pay, as they show the best possible price, which you can get if you already have products with that company.

Plus the cheapest one, may be the worst for paying out when the money is needed. I would rather deal with a company where I know others have dealt with them, and recived a good service from them.

our dog is insured through tesco, no complaints, but not had to claim yet.

We used to use Marks & Sparks pet insurance as it covered everything and there was no payment at all for any care our cats received.

Which came in very handy seeing as our cat developed a heart condition which after 3 months of treatment had racked up almost £5,000 of bills, which M&S gladly paid.

M&S changed their underwriters though and added some not so nice clauses int he contract, so we switched to Pet Plan.

It is a good idea to speak to your vet and see who they recomend.

and I would definitely insure your kitten (see above)

Thats why I said you ned to tailor it to your own needs. When you do a comparison, it will tell you on the lef the level of cover it provides, the OP just needs to choose which level of cover is suitable for herself :)

I've got my three dogs insured with Healthy Pets. http://www.healthy-pets.co.uk/

I was insured with Argos but even though I never claimed, the three policies went up by £60 each when the renewal notices came!

I would recommend going through Quidco and doing the shopping around yourself as they are paying about £20 for each policy you take out

I have my British Blue Shorthair insured with Direct Line who have ALWAYS paid up, never with any probs. But saying that, each year the premium goes up and the benefits are reduced- but my cat is getting on abit. I would recommend DL all the way- only cos I have heard stories about the cheaper insurers being quite 'tight' when it comes to paying up. Best thing to do is check out which proves cheapest for you and THEN, search for reviews on the net for that particular provider.. secondly, pop into the local vets and ask them which companies should be avoided etc...hope that helps..

thanks for the advice folks, given me alot of food for thought, but I will deffinetly go and speak to the vet
#13
Tesco always seem to be the cheapest by far, never had to make a claim though so can't comment on claims service.
#14
told by my vet if you have a cat the times you need insurance most is when theyre kittens and when theyre old..

sounds obvious.. but useful to bear in mind as Kittens are very very vulnerable..

We insured both of our cats with Tesco's when they were kittens and it is £7 a month. Had to cliam twice for one of the cats and they were sound with us. We had to pay a £40 excess per claim and in the end as the two claims came so close together tesco refunded £40 and classed the claim as a single. They were smooth right through to the end and had a contact service set up with our vet where they could liase with them directly without us really having to get involved.
I would get insurance for the kittens as ours was a calim for the cat when she was 6 months old from what they said was rare in cats.

My dog is insured with Healthy Pets and I'd really recommend them. Troy needed an operation earlier in the year they paid out very quickly and with no fuss at all.

I think they have recently put their prices up though.

(we only pay £5/month at the minute but I think the prices are nearer £8/month now)
