What type of insurance does Petplan offer?
Petplan is one of the UK's biggest pet insurers. Along with policies you may expect for dogs, cats and rabbits it also offers cover for puppies, horses and breeders.
Some of its products are offered under slightly different brands, for example, Petplan Equine covers horses, ponies and riders. Its breeder insurance scheme enables breeders to give the new owners of dogs they sell four weeks of free Petplan cover, which includes up to £4,000 vet fee cover.
Petplan offers a choice between three policies for dogs, cats and puppies - 12 Months Essential, Covered For Life Classic and Covered For Life Ultimate.
They all offer cover for vet fees and loss or theft. The 12 Months policy will only cover an illness for up to 12 months whereas the Covered For Life options are what many insurers refer to as lifetime policies, which means they can cover an illness through the life of a pet.
