We’re always trying to make our products better for pet parents. Following our feedback, and guidance from our Chief Veterinary Officer, we’ve made some product changes to help provide better cover for your pets. Previously, if your beloved pet contracted a common infectious disease such as kennel cough that required treatment, this was excluded from policies. But from 28 June, previously excluded infectious diseases will now be covered on our comprehensive products with illness cover (as long as it’s not a pre-existing condition).
There are several infectious diseases that cats and dogs and catch. Example of the common ones included in this change are:
- Infectious Canine Hepatitis (canine adenovirus)
- Canine Distemper
- Canine Influenza
- All forms of Kennel Cough
- Feline Panleukopenia
- Feline Leukaemia vVrus (FeLV)
- Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV)
- Viral Rhinotracheitis
- Herpes virus
- All forms of cat flu
At PetSure, we are always trying to make our products better for pets and their parents. As well as this latest change to infectious diseases, we have also made other product improvements that can be found here. If you suspect your pet is sick, call your vet immediately. For health-related questions, always consult your veterinarian, as they have examined your pet, know the pet’s health history, and can make the best recommendations for your pet.
We’ll be updating our Product Disclosure Statements with this change shortly.
