Caring for your dog, whether it’s a gundog or a pet is a big responsibility. At Countryside Alliance we believe insurance is an important part of being a responsible gundog owner. It allows you as an owner to seek veterinary treatment at the earliest opportunity without having to worry about the cost of unexpected vet bills.
When preparing for the season, you should make sure your gundog has the right insurance cover in place, just in case any unexpected accidents and injuries occur. If an incident does happen, pet insurance takes out the financial worry of what’s likely to be a stressful situation. You can then focus on what’s most important – your dog’s health.
It’s important to be aware that not all dog insurance is the same. Some policies limit the amount of time or money you can claim for. So don’t just shop around on price alone. Ask the following four key questions to get a clear understanding of what each policy does and doesn’t cover:
- Will the policy cover my dog for on-going conditions (e.g. eczema) into its old age?
- Will exclusions be placed at renewal for an illness that occurred in the previous year?
- Will my excess or premium increase if I make a claim?
- Will the policy cover congenital and hereditary illness, hip-related conditions, dental treatment or behavioural conditions?
