How does Petsecure insurance work?

You can get Illness cover for your dog or cat from 8 weeks up to 9 years of age.  After 8 weeks there is no age limit for Accident only cover.

Is insurance available if my pet has pre-existing conditions?

Yes, you can still get pet insurance if your pet has a pre-existing condition, but that condition (which is pre-existing) will not be covered, but other conditions that arise in the future, including chronic conditions would be covered.  This is why it makes sense to get your cover sorted early, before any condition emerges that would be a pre-existing condition, so that you know the insurance will be there to help with the vet’s bills when the unexpected happens, and you can give your furry friends get the vet care they need, when they need it!
