Still have questions about SunLife Pet Insurance?
Meet Sid (dog), Sid is adored by all the family, but he's a bit of a tinker loves running about and sneaking outdoors.
Sid wasn’t covered by pet insurance, so his owners had to find almost £1200 to cover the bill.
Fortunately Sid is going to be absolutely fine.
Paying for an unexpected bill like this could mean you have to go without something else!
Pet insurance helps to cover the cost of vet bills in the event of an insured animal falling ill or being injured in an accident.
Sid could have had accident only insurance for less than £7 per month, saving his owners hassle and money at an already stressful time.
Misty recently broke her leg and her treatment cost over £850 but was covered by insurance.
Her owners pay just over £4 per month for accident insurance and it gives them peace of mind at an affordable cost.
We offer 4 types of cover for cats & dogs from accident only to gold cover.
Included in your policy you’ll get access to a 24 hour pet helpline…and you’ll get support if your furry friend passes away – we really understand how upsetting it can be.
If you do have to claim, we can even deal with your vet for you!
That's another thing we've made straightfordable.
If you’re a dog or cat owner, you’ll know your pet can quickly become part of the family. But what happens when they’re in an accident or become poorly?
Trips to the vet can be expensive as well as stressful, but pet insurance helps to cover the cost of treatment if an insured animal falls ill or is injured in an accident.
