Many people now take out pet insurance to cover the costs of accidents or illness. At Brookend Veterinary Surgery we pride ourselves on the standard of care provided for your pet.
However, expertise and technology, combined with an availability 24 hours a day every day of the year, does cost money, and this is why we want to bring pet insurance to your attention.
For a fraction of the weekly expense of pet food you can insure your pet against the sometimes high costs of unexpected illness, accident or even early death.
We must emphasise that we are in no way involved in selling insurance. Our endeavour is simply to provide the best possible standard of care. Realistically however, we appreciate that this can be expensive and, in the circumstances of a sudden unavoidable bill, insurance makes very good sense indeed.
If you would like to know more about pet insurance please feel free to ask us any questions. We can provide you with an independent pet insurance guide from a small company called VIP (vet insurance protector). There are four types of insurance cover available in the marketplace, and we feel that lifetime cover is appropriate for most of our clients. This is where an insurer covers an illness/injury for the whole of a pet's life, paying claims up to an annual limit each and every year without placing an exclusion on the condition.
When you contact VIP and give information regarding the type/breed of animal, your postcode and type of insurance required they will advise you of the most appropriate insurer to register with. VIP can be contacted via their website www.vip4u.co.uk
