Petition Action

Require pet owners to have accident and emergency insurance

Petition Details

Implement legislation which would require a minimum of ‘accident and emergency’ insurance cover for ALL companion animals (eg. cats and dogs) in the UK.

Additional Information

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.
