Require pet owners to have accident and emergency insurance
Implement legislation which would require a minimum of ‘accident and emergency’ insurance cover for ALL companion animals (eg. cats and dogs) in the UK.
Our pets don’t have a NHS; as the costs of veterinary care due to advances in treatment increase we should strive for responsible pet ownership.
Accident and emergency cover costs as little as £3 per month, and could be the difference between an animal surviving and being euthanised.
As the veterinary industry in the UK is under such high pressures, I believe this should help ensure higher levels of vet care are more accessible, with more veterinary options (as opposed to euthanasia) being offered to pet owners.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
