We provide dog insurance & cat insurance - at a variety of different levels to suit yours & your pets needs. 

Pet insurance doesn’t normally cover you for any conditions that already exist before you purchase, so always check this if are looking to move to a new provider or if you are taking out insurance for the first time but your pet has pre-existing medical conditions.

There will also generally be an excess (a fixed amount that you contribute to any claim) or a co-payment excess (normally a percentage of the total claimed amount that you will contribute to any claim) on your policy that you will have to pay.

Other common exclusions for pet insurance are breeds listed under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, cover for elective, routine or cosmetic treatment and cover for illness or accidents within a specified waiting period

So you have decided to get your pet insured, but now you are faced with a number of policies to choose from! Here at Purely Pets we offer 15 levels of Lifetime Cover - allowing you to choose the policy that suits your budget and requirements.

You already know there are different types of dog insurance cover available, but here's what that insurance jargon actually means:

Lifetime pet insurance: Also known as reinstatement cover, this policy offers ongoing protection for illness and injuries. Your pet is covered for medical treatment administered by a vet up to a certain vet fee limit each year. The full amount is reinstated every 12 months.

Maximum benefit pet insurance: Covers each illness or accident up to a fixed amount. Once that figure is reached, your pet is no longer covered.

Time-limited pet insurance: An accident or injury is covered for a specific length of time. Handy for short term illness.

Accident-only pet insurance: Your pet is covered if they are injured in an accident – but not if they fall ill. Usually up to a certain amount.

At Purely Pets, we believe every pet deserves the very best, which is why we only offer lifetime cover. You can choose from 15 levels of cover, with costs of up to £15,000 covered by your pet insurance. Get an instant pet insurance quote today.

These policies offer cover for accidents and illnesses for the pet’s lifetime. This is dependent upon you renewing the policy each year and keeping up to date with premiums. These are usually the most expensive policies, because they provide the most comprehensive cover.

All of our Lifetime policies offer you a pot of money per year that will cover all accidents and illnesses. We only offer Lifetime cover to our customers as we believe it is the most comprehensive cover available.

Like humans, our pets are more likely to be affected by illness as they get older. This means that every year your insurance premium will increase even if you haven’t made a claim. This increase will be significant if you have claimed.

Purely Pets can provide you with an online quote for your pet in minutes.

With a range of lifetime options available offering vets fees cover from £1,000-£15,000 and the option to choose your excess we can help you find the right cover for you and your pet at a price that suits you.

We also have a specialist Pet Insurance team that you can call to get a quote or discuss your options in more detail.

When it comes to dog insurance, there are a few factors that can affect your costs. These include:

  • Age of your pet
  • Type of plan: The type of plan you choose can also affect your costs. A more comprehensive plan will usually cost more than a basic plan.
  • Excess: The excess is the amount you'll have to pay out of pocket before your insurance kicks in. A higher excess typically means a lower premium, but a lower excess usually means that you will have to pay more over time rather than a larger up-front cost.

The simple answer to the question 'Does dog insurance go up if you make a claim?' is yes, it can.

Therefore, when a pet owner does make a claim, the dog insurance company may increase the premium to reflect the increased risk.

However, the increase in the pet insurance premium will depend on the type of claim made, the size of the claim, and the dog insurance company's policy.

Some pet insurance companies may increase the premium after any claim, while others may only increase the premium if the pet owner makes multiple claims or if the claim is especially large.

It is important to read the dog insurance policy and policy wording before making a claim to understand how the particular company handles rate increases.

It is also important to note that dog insurance companies may increase the premium even if a claim is not made, due to a pet getting older and more likely to fall ill.

The rates for dog insurance can change as the pet ages, or if the claims history of other pet owners with the same breed or in the same area changes.

In conclusion, dog insurance can go up if you make a claim. However, the increase in the premium will depend on the type of claim made and the dog insurance company's policy.

Therefore, it is important to read the dog insurance policy and understand the potential risks before making a claim.

When choosing dog insurance for Great Danes, there are several factors to consider. It is important to understand the different types of coverage available and how they can benefit your pet.

It is also important to read the fine print of any policy you are considering. Make sure you understand the terms and conditions of coverage and any exclusions that may apply.

Considering the cost of pet insurance for Great Danes will also be a factor when deciding which plan will suit you the best. Different policies have different premiums and excesses, so it is important to compare the cost of different policies before making a decision.
