At Petplan we’ve made it easy to find the right policy. We offer two types of cover packed with lots of benefits. Petplan’s Covered For Life® plan provides ongoing cover right into the old age of your pet and our Essential plan provides 12 months cover for your dog.

Covered For Life®

Covered for Life
  • Covers your dog for illness or injury year after year so you can continue to claim for a condition as long as your dog needs treatment, provided you renew your policy without a break in cover
  • We’ll cover up to £4,000 - £12,000 in vet fees annually depending on which level of cover you choose.

What our customers say

June 2019

After paying the excess, Petplan has always paid for my dogs treatment. So far I've had no problems or issues with claiming. I like that the vet gets paid directly. I like that its life cover so things are not excluded the following year. I know it is expensive, but they cover everything and do pay out.
