As you know merlin was poorly before christmas , as the vet bill was nearly £350 i claimed on his insurance. I got a letter 2 days ago to say the form has been passed to the claims office , then today i get a email to say i need to get my vet to give them merlin's case history , phoned the vet . They first sent everything on the 6 jan and they had another request from the company again today , so they send it all again. I phoned the company later today for them to say they have not got the info again :? :? it has been sent by email and fax ,think they are just stalling my vet has said they have nothing but trouble with this company , so i wait with baited breath to see what they say now. jane and merlin

Oh jane, what a pain x I know we have always paid a lot of money for our insurance but I have to say that with our cat, after the dog attack years ago he had nearly £2k worth of vet bills and it was all paid no issue. Then our other cat (sadly not withe us now) got attacked by the same dog, insured by the same company and she had a £1k worth of surgery....again paid up no issue x

Pet Plan life insurance, £30 - 40 a month for a doggy but unless you are great at saving money for stuff like this, which we are not, its the only way we felt we could be happy that this would never happen.

Good luck there Jane.

That is good news Jane, I am with Pet Plan Life Too though expensive at least they pay our vets direct so we don't have to worry about claiming it back. I feel that If I had the money to pay for the vet bill outright in the first place then I would not need insurance to cover the vet fee's (Just the way I view it be it right or wrong)
