With only one in five owners buying insurance, here’s how you can save on costs
Pets don’t have the luxury of free NHS healthcare if they get sick, and even a minor visit to the vet can bring with it a big bill. Pet insurance offers some protection but only one in five owners buy it, according to the market analysis company Statista, and policies do not cover every expense. Routine treatment, including inoculations, won’t be insured, there is usually an excess to pay on claims and you may need to pay upfront for treatment before reclaiming costs.
Even without insurance, there are ways to save on bills without compromising the health of your dog or cat, and these start with the vet you choose.
