Dogs and cats are not the only animals that can cause damage to your home and its contents. Rodents and insects can also cause havoc if left unchecked.
If the animal is considered a 'pest', then you may be covered for pest infestation with home emergency insurance. With LV=, if you take out home emergency cover in addition to your home insurance, we'll help you get rid of certain pest infestations.
For damage by other wild animals, such as deer or foxes, or even birds that fly in to a window, you'll need to check with your insurer.
If the damage is to the fabric of the building, such as a broken window, then you may be covered for accidental damage on your buildings insurance. If the damage is accidental, like a fox knocking over a valuable statue in your garden, then you may be able to claim on your home contents insurance.
