More protection for your best friend – PetSure policy exclusions removed

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.

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).
