I am currently with more than/royal sun alliance and have been from day 1.My dog is 8 yrs old and in good health - insurance is costing £35 per month!
This seems way too much - can anyone recommend a good company to change to?Cheaper would be good obviously but I want to make sure they will actually pay out on claims although (touch wood) we have only ever had one with him.

Thanks.

We have Argos insurance - the top cover for our 15 month lab after someone with a lab with allergies recommended it to us.

We have had 1 claim (he has growth / elbow issues) and the premium has gone up some this year (sorry can't remember what and can't get to the paperwork right now). Could be worth getting a quote from them.

labradorforum has a whole section on lab insurance -that might help!

I use tescos and I think i pay similar to that per month for old lab, v old cat and young pup. So might be worth looking at. I have had a number of claims over hte years as the lab was very accident prone and has allergies and tesco has always paid up promptly.

We use Sainsburys. They provide full vet fee cover which includes medication for the lifetime of the pet if needed. (lots of policies only pay out for a year) We have made a couple of small claims and they are no problem. Our vet says they have a good reputation. (as did our previous vet|)

We pay £20 per month each for the Goldens and £12 a month forour 'mutt' foster :coughs: pup.

Try go compare, it will list lots of options/prices for you. We found they ranged from about £8 to £80 per month!

thnaks paws i tried but it came up with loads of companies i hadn't heard of and i really don't want to go somewhere if they aren't likely to pay on any future claims.
