Should I have insurance for my dog?

There is currently no legal requirement for you to have insurance for your dog however vet care for dogs can be expensive. By taking out dog insurance with a reputable pet insurance company you can ease the financial burden and make dog care affordable.

Third Party liability

Pet owners can be legally responsible for the actions of their animals. If your pet were to injure someone or run across the road and cause an accident, as owner of that animal you could be liable to prosecution and claims for compensation. Under the 1971 Animals Act this includes damage to vehicles too. With this in mind it is a good idea to ensure that you take out third party liability as part of your pet insurance package.
