    Default insurence

    I was wondering if it was worth taking insurence out on my 6 year old cavalier & if so which company have you found to be good . I'm a bit warey of ringing company's up & asking if they cover certain things such as mri incase they press the magic button on their keyboard & increase the price ,lol

    My other two dogs have been to the vets with health problems so I dont think its worth insuring them . But this one has only been for a bad tummy & vaccinations

    Hi

    Just checked all that the critical thing is cover for life for any one illness and i still think theres only one and thats Petplan i have 3 cavs and 2 cats the cavs i think are about £24 moth for a benefit for life per condition of £400 i think all in it costs me a year for all close to £1400.
    Good luck but it must be for life not time limited or amount limited

    AXA by far is the best. They pay out up to £7000 every year for the duration of that illness. Many only pay for the first year of the condition. The excess is £50, many others are £70. They are the cheapest I found too and they told me today that they would pay for Dylan's MRI which will cost £1300-£1500.

    Mine cost £182.54. Each postal area has it's own price depending on vets prices in that area and I live in a very expensive area.

    Brian,

    you should be able you cancel, you normally have 14.days.

    I thought you might like to know how much mine cost per month. I do it monthly as there is no interest added to the premium doing it this way.

    2 Shelties are £13.75 (age 7 yrs) and £10.09 (age 4yrs)

    Cavs are £12.76 (age 5 yrs) £12.85 (rescue PF age 6) £12.85 (rescue PF age 6)

    Total £62 pm. £750 a year for 5 dogs...well worth it I think, especially with the Cavaliers.

    Alison.
