Our pets deserve the best, but unexpected vet bills can be costly and stressful. That’s why it’s important to insure our four-legged friends – just in case the worst happens.

Petsurance from PDSA offers a range pet insurance policies that suit every budget. And best of all, every policy sold helps the veterinary charity to provide care to help other, less-fortunate pets. Last year, policy holders helped generate the funds needed for the charity to care for almost 7,000 vulnerable pets at one of their Pet Hospitals.

PDSA understands how important pets are in people’s lives. That’s why for more than 100 years the devoted vets and nurses have provided a lifeline to millions of vulnerable pets that would otherwise suffer in silence.

Petsurance from PDSA policies have been specially selected by the charity’s vets to offer cover that protects your pet and gives you peace of mind. You still use your regular vet, and you also get access to a great range of extra benefits.

Protecting your pet and your pocket

Research from the PDSA Animal Wellbeing Report* found that in the UK there are 3.8 million uninsured dogs and 6.9 million uninsured cats. The top reason given for not insuring was because it costs too much.

Yet if your pet becomes unexpectedly ill, or has an accident, pet insurance can eliminate any worry about the cost so that you can devote your full attention to helping your cherished pet recover, rather than worry about paying a bill which could run into thousands of pounds.

Petsurance from PDSA offers a range of policies to suit your pet’s needs and your budget, including its two ‘Ultimate’ policies, which are 5 star-rated by Defaqto. There’s no need to pay upfront either as you can spread the cost with interest-free monthly payments.
