What to do if you dont qualify for PDSA's vet care services

How do I qualify for PDSA Help?

To qualify, pet owners need to:

  • live within a defined catchment area of a PDSA PetAid hospital or practice
  • be receiving either Housing Benefit or Council Tax Benefit *
  • * Please note that only Council Tax Benefit can be accepted. Other reductions in Council Tax e.g. single person discount, second adult rebate and council tax exemption do not qualify.

If you are not eligible for PDSA help

It may also be worth considering a Pet Insurance policy to ensure you have peace of mind and your pet has the protection they need. PDSA Petsurance offers great value protection and there are three levels of cover for vets' fees for accident or illness (per condition) from £1,000, £2,000 or £5,000.
