A good pet insurance scheme will cover all types of treatment including surgery, medical tests, x-rays and general visits to the vet including emergencies. And as with human travel insurance policies, pet insurance can be purchased either as annual policy or as a one-off travel policy. Often insurance companies will start insuring pet from the age of six months but some will not give coverage to your pet if they are more than of eight years owing the costs involved with looking after older animals.
