K9 Cover Launch 24 Hour Vet Helpline
K9 Cover Launch 24 Hour Vet Helpline
By Stewart Rioch

K9 Cover are pleased to announce the launch of our 24-hour, 7 day-a-week health triage, providing help and advice for your dog. The service, which we refer to as K9 Helpline 24/7 will be available to all GOLD level policyholders.

We know that getting instant, qualified advice about your dog’s health is critical when you suspect there is something wrong. Our helpline offers round the clock access to a team of RCVS registered veterinary nurses every day of the year. The service includes webchat and telephone, either of which can escalate to a video call depending on the nature of the emergency.

Should you need to contact our trained nurses you’ll gain the reassurance of speaking to an expert, well versed in handling pet emergencies. Although each nurse must have a minimum of 3 years’ experience at a practice, the average length time they’ve spent providing support is over 10 years. They can help determine whether a trip to your vet is necessary which is especially useful in the evening or at weekends when your usual vet may be closed.

They can be there for you during the night, helping monitor any changes in your dog’s behaviour, which could let you to see your regular vet the next day. Or perhaps when you’re away from home, during a walk, or when you just need support from an empathetic veterinary nurse following bereavement.

K9 Helpline 24/7 comes with GOLD cover. We sign you up automatically and send you details alongside your policy documents. Aside from emergencies it can also offer advice and guidance on a range of issues including: -

Buying a new puppy, Diet and changing foods, Exercise, Health check-up advice, Help to manage chronic conditions, Moving to a new house with your dog, Parasites, Poisons, Seasonal pet care do’s and don’ts, Wellness & behavioural issues
