If you have a sick pet and you want to treat it so badly, yet do not have the financial capacity, then you’ve come to the right place to seek for the information for your problem-solving. Just like in the United States and Canada, animal health care is becoming more and more expensive everyday in the UK. Treatments which cost hundreds of pounds previously, now cost thousands of pounds.
And that is why we have pet health insurance in the UK now to help those who are really emotionally tied to their pets and want to help to save their lives badly, yet can’t do much to help them.
Coverage and Plans
Basically a pet health insurance in the UK is almost similar to any other form of insurance. There are various types of plans, from the basic to the highest degree. Here are some of them; Standard – this is similar to the USA’s basic coverage, only difference is that it does not only cover unexpected circumstances such as accidents and illnesses including cancer, and surgeries, but also dental care. This plan does not cover vaccination and emergency cases. Value – slightly above the standard plan, the coverage extends to accidents as well as illness, surgeries, dental and basic wellness, such as monthly check-ups, supplements, physiotherapy, teeth cleaning, flea control, and vaccination and other preventative care. Premium – the coverage extends to everything from any monthly or yearly routine checkups, surgeries, accidents, chronic and long term illnesses, such as arthritis and cancer, to the basic wellness and care treatments such as equine, canine, art, music, I.T and dowsing therapy. Extra Features
Some companies have recently extended the accident coverage to many other aspects than the previous limited status of the pet hit by a vehicle only. Now, the pet health insurance in the UK has matured much enough to cover all circumstances such as the pet as the passenger, the pet being hurt by some other persons than the owner, or hurt by anything injurious, and even to pets not properly put in place in vehicle and got injured when you brake suddenly.
Another importance given by the pet health insurance in the UK is the dental care of animals. Once ago, there were many reports of cats and dogs getting gum bleeding problems, and after this incident came about, the insurance coverage offered by many insurance companies has been extended to cover these treatments as well; regardless of the pet’s age, for older cats are prone to these dental diseases more than the younger ones.
