HOLIDAYING WITH YOUR DOG? CHECK YOUR INSURANCE PROVIDES COVER.
Healthy Pets Insurance , the UKs biggest independent cat and dog insurer, believes around half of dogs taken on holiday may be travelling without pet insurance, with many owners believing they have cover they actually dont.
"Veterinary care in Europe is at least as good as in the UK - but, like the UK, it costs if your pet needs treatment while abroad," said Mark Effenberg, CEO of Healthy Pets Insurance.
"Most UK-based pet insurers provide foreign treatment or accident cover, but it is worth checking for certain before travelling.
"While expense is secondary to ensuring a pet gets the best possible treatment through illness or injury abroad, it will become a consideration at some point.
"A broken bone, or, Heaven-forbid, injuries sustained in a road accident, can cost thousands of Euros - often several times the price of the holiday."
Healthy Pets Insurance is quite possibly the original online pet insurer, launched in 1996, and which sold its first policies online in 1997, a year before Google was founded. It now has tens of thousands of customers, and policy purchases increasing fast.
Healthy Pets is an award-winning online insurer, and is the biggest independent pet insurance provider in the UK, focussing exclusively on cat insurance and dog insurance. It consistently offers the most competitive prices, and has amongst the highest customer satisfaction ratings.
