The Greyhound is an ancient dog breed thought to have been introduced to the UK as early as 900 AD. It is the fastest breed of dog, having been initially bred for coursing and, later, racing, and can reach speeds of up to 40mph.
Devoted, gentle and quiet, Greyhounds make wonderful family pets. They love the company of humans and other dogs, although, as they tend to have high prey-drives, might be difficult with small dogs or cats. They must be kept on a leash when outside, as they might run off in chase of prey.
To protect Greyhounds, Bought By Many has launched its own pet insurance. These policies were designed based on feedback from over 40,000 customers. They told us what they wanted from pet insurance, and we listened.
Bought By Many's pet insurance policies
Our Fixed For Life pet insurance policy, available for Greyhound puppies and kittens below the age of two, includes £7,000 of vet fees per condition up to a limit of £20,000 over the pet's life.
This policy will never increase in price, even if you claim. This can be useful as pet insurance policies tend to increase as dogs grow older.
Our Pre-Existing pet insurance policy can provide cover for some pre-existing conditions. This means a condition your pet has had in the last two years, but not in the three months before the policy starts. It also offers £7,000 vet fees cover for any new conditions your pet may contract.
This policy means you can switch insurers and still have some level of cover for any condition your pet has had in the past.
The Moneyback policy can pay out 20% of your premium for every year you don't claim.
We also have three other policies called Value, Regular and Complete. These have vet fee cover levels of £3,000, £7,000 and £15,000 respectively. Complete is the most comprehensive pet insurance policy on the market, and even includes dental cover as standard. Regular and Complete are lifetime policies.
The average price for a 3-year-old greyhound on our Value policy is £15.33 a month. That's based on policies sold between February 2016 and January 2017.
Finally, we've created a Liability Only pet insurance policy that offers £3 million in public liability cover, but no cover for vet fees. This means you'll be covered if someone injures someone or damages their property, but not if they get sick.
Lifetime (or ‘yearly limit’) insurance covers vet fees up to the policy's limit every year. So long as you renew a lifetime policy each year, the level of vet fees will reset to the full stated limits that you started with. With a lifetime product, it is important to note that your premiums are likely to increase each year at renewal.

Why buy pet insurance for your Greyhound?
Health wise, Greyhounds are prone to esophageal achalasia, osteosarcoma and bloat (gastric torsion), so meals need to be carefully planned. They can also be sensitive to medicine, including insecticides. Their lean physic means they need a soft surface to sleep on, or they can develop skin sores. Pet insurance can help with vet bills if your Greyhound is troubled by these or other ailments.

Bear in mind it can be difficult finding pet insurance for racing greyhounds. Some specialist insurance companies offer it; however most well-known pet insurance companies will be insure them as they are classed as 'working dogs', meaning they are at a higher risk of injury or accident. The company we have negotiated this discount with unfortunately will not provide pet insurance for racing Greyhounds.
However, if you have an ex-racing Greyhound, you should be able to insure it. Pet insurance for retired Greyhounds shouldn't be any different from getting a quote for a regular non-working Greyhound.
