The value of having pet insurance, by Neil Ewart, Trustee, Seeing Dogs


Seeing Dogs Alliance requires good funding to continue the work we are doing and to expand our services to as many clients as we can.

Currently, there isn’t a fortune in the bank but we are in a position to finance our second trainer plus acquire and look after sufficient dogs.

However, a growing concern centre around veterinary bills which can often be quite horrendous.

We must advise all our clients to ensure you all take out adequate insurance to cover bills when they occur.

Also, please check you have third party insurance should your dog cause injury or damage to a third party.

Sometimes your home insurance can cover you but in most cases it only refers to incidents which occur within the boundaries of your home.

Remember that vet bills can sometimes be huge and everyone seems keen to sue nowadays!
