Does pet insurance cover Coronavirus?'

All of our policies (excluding Liability Only) will cover vet fees should your pet become unwell.

While pets are thought to be a low risk from Covid-19, our insurance policies do not exclude specific viruses so we would cover a new claim for vet treatment for it.

If you're struggling to get to a vet for any issues, you can video call a UK-registered vet through the FirstVet app.

All our vet fee policies have some level of cover for emergency minding.

This can be used if you or a relative needs an unexpected stay in hospital to cover the cost of pet boarding, a cattery, kennel or pet sitting.

If you are travelling abroad, unfortunately we would not be able to cover pet minding in an emergency as this is not part of our travel abroad cover.

Check your policy to see how much cover you have under the 'Cover if you need pet minding in an emergency' section.
