Premier cover

This cover offers vet fee cover for an accident, sickness or disease up to £2,000, per pet. You can cover up to three pets on a policy.

We’ve designed this policy, because we know how expensive vet fees can get – and if all three of your piggy’s were to get ill at once, you’d want as much cover as possible.

The policy offers £2,000 of cover per pet.

Essential cover

This policy will cover your Guinea Pig for £2,000 of vet fee cover, for accident, sickness or disease for a policy period of 12 months.

You can cover up to three pets on a policy, and the £2,000 of cover will be spread out between them.

Some general policy information and dental cover

  • The excess per course of treatment is £65.
  • Policies are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase and you’ll be able to make a vet fee claim after the 14th day* (unless otherwise stated on your certificate of insurance).
  • No prolonged waiting period for dental cover - you don’t need to wait for two years before you can make a claim for dental fees. 14 days after having insured your pet (unless otherwise stated on your Certificate of Insurance), your piggy will be fully covered for vet fees*.
