Why Blue Cross promote Petplan

At Blue Cross, we believe pet insurance is an important part of being a responsible pet owner. While rehoming a pet is an exciting and rewarding time, it‘s also important that you consider the financial implications should your pet suffer from any unexpected illnesses and injuries. 

Pet insurance can allow you to make decisions based in the best interests of your pet’s health. However, it’s important to know that not all pet insurance is the same, some policies will limit the amount of time or money that you are eligible to claim for, so make sure you understand what a policy will and will not cover!

We know that, having rehomed a pet from us, you want to give them the best life possible. 

With advancements in veterinary medicine it’s important to choose the right insurance for your pet so you can get the right treatment for them without having to worry about the costs.

Not all pet insurance is the same. The type of policy you choose can have implications on the veterinary care of your pet. When shopping around for a policy, we recommend that you consider the following:

  • What is the Veterinary Fees excess?
  • Will the insurer pay the vet directly?
  • Does the policy provide lifetime cover, or are conditions excluded after 12 months?
  • Does the policy cover congenital, hereditary, hip-related, dental and behavioural conditions?
  • Will your premium increase if you make a claim?

Petplan offer a range of plans to suit every budget. Take a look below:
