Things you'll need to complete your claim form

If you're making a claim for vet fees, we'll need the following:

  • A claim form fully completed by you and your vet.
  • A fully itemised invoice (or receipt) for the treatment you are claiming for 
  • Your pet's clinical history 


Once you've filled in the claim form and gathered all the information, you can return this to us by:

Settling your claim 

  • If someone else was involved in the incident, we look after all the negotiations with them or their insurance company 
  • If your vet is happy for us to pay them directly, we can do this. Remember to pay your vet any amount that isn't covered by your pet insurance. e.g. policy excess
  • Once everything has been finalised and payments made, your claim is then closed. You can still get in touch if you have any questions about your claim - we'll be very happy to help
