Why Choose PDSA Pet Insurance
Find out more about PDSA's Pet Insurance for your pet today
Insuring your pets with PDSA Pet insurance is a responsible step in building a safer future for your dog and cat companions.
It’s only when something goes wrong that we really understand the true value of this care, both personally and financially. We know how distressing it can be for owners when your pet is sick or injured. The situation can be made even worse if there are veterinary bills to worry about. That’s why it’s so important that pet owners consider the importance of pet insurance to help prepare for unexpected veterinary bills.
Pet insurance from PDSA has a range of benefits with three levels of cover to choose from.
PDSA Pet Insurance, arranged in association with one of the UK’s top insurers, is designed so that pet owners can make informed choices about their pet’s care when they need to.
Owners will naturally look at different considerations when looking for pet insurance, such as budget and the level of cover required. Accidents and sickness can’t be predicted but research shows that 1 in 3 pets will require veterinary treatment following illness, accident or injury every year*** and that veterinary costs are rising an average of 12% per year. With pet insurance from PDSA you can relax knowing that you are benefiting from affordable, high quality cover.
PDSA is the UK’s leading veterinary charity and our three insurance products are designed to make your choice easy, as well as offering customers many great benefits such as a 5% discount when you buy online. In addition, pet owners will currently not pay interest on monthly installments and can receive cover for ongoing conditions*. And unlike some insurance policies there are currently no upper age limits.**
By choosing PDSA Pet Insurance, not only do you help your pet companion with the medical care and attention they may need, you also help PDSA to treat hundreds of thousands of sick and injured pets in need.
This year alone PDSA will provide more than 2.2 million free treatments to sick and injured pets. This is achieved entirely through public support.
Your policy will also raise vital income for PDSA to help us treat poorly pets.
On average 16% of your Pet Insurance premium cost will be donated to PDSA but as much as 20% could be used to help provide veterinary services to the sick and injured animals of people in need, while also helping PDSA to promote responsible pet ownership.‡
For 95 years PDSA has been caring for sick and injured animals. Today, PDSA staff treats hundreds of thousands of poorly pets who desperately need our help each year.
The demand on our service has increased by an incredible 50% over the past five years and PDSA does not receive any government or national lottery funding. This year we need to raise over £54 million to run our charitable veterinary service, all of which is funded by kind donations, fundraising and legacies from the general public.
