"Never had any issues with this company. Be it claiming, changing or adding new policies. I would never leave my ferrets with no insurance and trust them completely with you. Thank you!!!! Vicky is so helpful also!"
5 star review received from Feefo October 2018, - thanks to Janene Harwood
"In May 2016 my pet ferret became quite ill - he was unable to walk, wouldn't eat and lost about a third of his body weight in a couple of weeks. He was ill for about 4 months, requiring hand feeding every 4 hours for about 2 months, before he eventually started eating on his own volition again.
For those that don't know, ferrets are expensive to treat even for (what turned out to be) a minor illness. We found ourselves at the vets weekly, if not more, for medication, pain reduction, blood tests, overnight stays etc.
The final bills came to something like £1600. I was aware throughout that not all would be covered by the insurance (specialist emergency food cost us a couple of hundred over the two months) but I can't express what a relief it was to know he was covered for the remainder.
The money was received about a week after each claim was submitted. The staff were friendly and answered all my questions efficiently. I was told afterwards that I could have actually had them pay the vets directly, which is something I'd consider in the future.
Thankfully he is a happy and healthy ferret at the moment, and while his health is worth every penny we paid (and would have paid even if not covered), it was nice to be able to claim back a large chunk of the bills.
Thank you for making the claiming process so easy and for being friendly and attentive on the phone when called."
