What type of cover do Pet Protect provide

Pet Protect offers a range of different cover including:

Time Care

If you are looking for a policy that covers the essentials, time limited cover is designed to cover your pet for any short-term illnesses and injuries, it is a great option for older pets.

Condition Care

As long as your policy is in force, if you have Pet condition care, your insurance covers up to £3,000 for every new accident or illness. Once you reach your benefit limit, treatment for that specific accident or illness will be excluded for the remainder of the policy’s life.

Lifetime Policies

Many insurers don’t cover pre-existing conditions for new policies, which is why many people choose to keep their lifetime pet cover rolling as it covers you pet year after year for your pet's lifetime as long as you don’t cancel your policy. You can choose from £4,000 or £6,000 vet fee cover. All limits are subject to policy renewal.
