Specialist Pet Insurance For Older And Mature Dogs


How are we different? We provide ONLINE MEDICAL SCREENING for your dog's pre-existing medical conditions. This means we aim to cover your dog for every condition, including those you may have claimed against in the past, and with Lifetime Cover our policy will protect your dog through to its senior years, provided their first policy with us begins before they turn eleven. 


Older dogs are likely to have suffered more medical conditions. Don’t take the risk of these being uninsured – get a pet insurance quote now.


What Constitutes Old Age?


We're all familiar with the 7 dog years to 1 human year analogy but this is pretty flawed when you have an Irish Wolfhound with a life expectancy of 6 years and a Chihuahua at 16. We’ve also found pet food labels to be just as vague. Apparently once your dog reaches 7 they’re considered mature – even for smaller breeds, which surely can’t be the case for those that live well into their teens? Perhaps they charge more for the extra nutrients so it’s in their interests to bring the classification down?


So from an insurance viewpoint we thought it may interest you to know where we think the tipping point lies. We've done a bit of research and in a few days time you'll be able to enter your dog's breed and age, and we'll pinpoint their equivalent human age for you. Watch this space!
