Veterinary Finance

We understand how much your pet's health and happiness means to you.  

Unplanned treatment costs can be difficult to cover at short notice. This can lead to difficult decisions. Unlike human healthcare, there is no public health system for animals.

Pet owners are responsible for unsubsidised treatment of their pets. There are however ways to alleviate the costs associated with providing excellent health care for your pet. 

You could adopt the old fashioned approach and put money aside every week for any unexpected veterinary bills.  This could be as simple as setting up an automatic payment to a special savings account whilst keeping fingers crossed that nothing happens to your pet until you have a decent nest egg. Better still you could take out one of the excellent pet insurance policies available.
