Top 5 Pet Policy Tips.

When buying your pet make sure you obtain a signed and dated receipt from the seller, with their name and address included. Keep this in a safe place.
To make the most of your pet policy, ask your veterinary surgeon for an estimate before any treatment and shop around, all vets charge different prices so do your research before accepting the first quote you receive.
Make sure your pet has regular routine health checks. Often a routine check will pick up any early signs of illness, which may require treatment, and in some cases can help prevent an illness occurring. Also, maintaining your pets' correct weight is important as being underweight or overweight can lead to other illnesses.
You must make sure your veterinary surgeon fills in and signs a claim form before you fill in your part so you can understand what your vet is claiming for.
To find out veterinary prices, shop around as all policies either have a maximum limit per condition or a pot of money for the year for all conditions so this will make your money go further, meaning you can treat your pet for longer
