Welcoming a new puppy into your home is a long-term commitment, but if your pet develops a long-term condition, some pet insurance policies could leave you stranded. We don’t think that’s fair. That's why The Kennel Club Pet Insurance only provides lifetime policies.

It’s reassuring to know that we are here to help you with the cost of unexpected injuries or illnesses and, even better, we can help to protect you and your new companion not just for now, but for the rest of their life.

Why is pet insurance so important?

Just like us, pets will at some point fall ill or have an unexpected injury. But with pets there is no NHS to absorb the cost. Pet insurance helps owners plan for unexpected vet fees and this is usually the reason owners choose to insure their pets.

With over 125 years of experience in animal health, we know all too well that sometimes things can go wrong. So, it’s important to look after your pet just like any member of the family. That means having the right food, the right exercise regime and, of course, the right pet insurance.

Why choose The Kennel Club Pet Insurance?

We only offer lifetime cover, so we will cover ongoing illnesses for the rest of your pet’s life. Our policies come with up to £25,000 in vet fees benefit which renews each and every year for the rest of your dog’s life. Don’t risk heartache or stretching your finances when your dog needs treatment. Invest in The Kennel Club Pet Insurance and let us pick up the vet's bills. 

Plus, we believe you should be able to tailor your policy to your needs, so you don’t pay for cover you don’t need.
