For many pet owners, insurance can be a grey area, especially when it comes to choosing the right policy for their pedigree pet. A pedigree cat or dog is born from parents who are the same breed; for example, a Labrador or Bengal Cat.
Pedigree breeds are more expensive to insure
Some pedigree breeds are more likely to develop hereditary conditions than mixed-breed pets (mongrels/moggies), so naturally owners sometimes assume that they will be paying more to insure their pedigree pup or kitten, as they are at an increased likelihood of making a claim. Pets in a Pickle take into consideration more than just the lineage of your furry friend. Premiums are calculated with other factors than just breed, such as the age of your pet at the start of the policy and where you live.
What cover is best for your pet?
Pets in a Pickle can insure your cat or dog from as young as eight weeks. Once you have found the perfect pet for you, it is a good idea to research any hereditary or congenital conditions that might occur in its life to decide what level of cover limit would suit you.
Pets in a Pickle’s range of Lifetime policies offer comprehensive cover for your feline friend or canine companion. This type of insurance is designed to renew every year and is ideal for protecting your pet against recurring health conditions*.

* New accidents and illnesses (conditions) are covered up to the specified financial limit in each policy term for each separate condition. If the condition limit is reached during the policy term, the cover stops for that condition until the policy is renewed. At the renewal date the condition limit is fully reinstated and the condition will continue to be covered by the policy in the following policy term. This is subject to the insurer inviting the policy renewal and payment of premiums by the due date. No further cover will be provided beyond the cancellation or expiry date of the policy.
