Make a Claim

How to make a claim

We understand that it can be quite stressful when your pets get sick or injured, and that caring for them is a top priority.

To make the claims process go smoothly, submit your claim as soon as you can with all the details and documentation needed to support it, for example:

  • Itemised invoice
    • This means an invoice that has a breakdown of costs for the treatment you’re claiming for. The invoice needs to confirm the amount that has been paid, or other proof of payment must be supplied.
  • Consultation notes
    • Just like our GPs, vets keep a record of each visit. To be able to assess your pet’s claim, we need a copy of the vet’s consultation notes for the date your pet’s treatment took place.
  • Vet history
    • Sometimes we ask for additional vet history to make sure we have all relevant information for your pet. To make sure that your claims can be processed quickly, you can supply a complete record of the visits that your pet has made to the vet. You only need to submit this once and we’ll keep a record of it for future claims.
