PDSA Pet Insurance

Post by tedfromcode » 26 Mar 2014, 18:48

Hey guys i'm new to this forum but I have to ask is anyone familiar with PDSA's Pet Insurance policy?
Reference: http://www.pdsa.org.uk/how-you-can-help ... -from-pdsa

I know they're an animal charity but have only just found this out.
Do you think it's a safe bet or better to just go with someone who focuses solely on pet insurance?

I think you want to look closely at the small print. For example they offer up to £7000 per condition, but other companies (such as petplan who I am with) will say up to £nnnn per condition per year (amount varies depending on the policy you select). With lifelong conditions you really do need this option as lifelong meds can soon exhaust the one-off sum.

We agree with Bid. We are with Pet Plan as they offered ongoing cover for existing conditions if they occur rather than an annual cover.
