treatment for even a serious injury or illness. For instance, a broken leg suffered by a cat or dog could mean a bill of several thousand pounds.
"We're obviously a business, but we're also pet lovers: insurance costing just a few pounds a month- whether with us or another insurer - could mean avoiding abandonment which, frankly, can often mean that pet is ultimately put to sleep. A couple of bottles of wine, or abandoning your pet...? Surely we're talking no-brainer here.
"How do you explain to your child that his or her cat or dog has had to go because it was ill or injured, and you just couldn't afford to pay for treatment that could have been covered by a very low cost insurance policy?
"I have a friend who took on a rescue cat who was hit by a car and suffered a broken leg, broken jaw, and lost a tooth a few Christmases back. The previous owners left him at the vets, saying to put him to sleep, when they were told how much his treatment would cost: they said they would have had no money left for Christmas.
"Fortunately he is now in a very good and loving home - and insured - and a more contented cat you would not come across."
