Paws for thought

We are a nation of animal lovers, and our pets are an important part of the family; they have their own personality, and their own place on the sofa! Preparing for the unexpected is an important part of looking after our pets, but our furry friends don’t have access to the kind of health care that we do – what would you do if your pet was ill or injured? What if they wandered off, or were stolen?

We’re often reluctant when it comes to pet insurance, after all, once you’ve factored in the cost of buying them, plus food and equipment, pets don’t come cheap, and it’s easy to think that the worst will never happen. Insurance can also be confusing; how do you sort your excess from your maximum benefit?

This is where The Insurance Emporium comes in; their aim is to protect the things in life that are special to you, and their products reflect their passions. They’ve put together a brief guide to the different kinds of policy available, without the jargon:

  • Accident Only – this covers your pet for injuries caused by accidents, but not illnesses.
  • Public Liability Only (for dogs only) – if your dog is involved in an incident where someone gets injured, or some property is damaged, this policy covers legal costs, compensation and claimants’ expenses.
  • Time Limited – this covers illness or accidents for up to 365 days from the date they first show clinical signs.
  • Maximum Benefit – this covers accidents and illnesses up to the fixed-cost limit, no matter how long it takes to reach that limit.
  • Lifetime – this covers accident and illnesses throughout your pet’s life, as long as your premiums are up to date.

You never know when you’re going to need a vet, or how much it will cost, and while it’s not nice to think of anything bad happening to our four legged pals, if the worst were to happen wouldn’t it be nice to make a decision about their treatment that’s based on what they need and not what it will cost?
