Pet insurance claims hit record number

The number of UK pet owners claiming on insurance policies has reached a new record, with 911,000 claims being made in 2015. The Association of British Insurers (ABI) said the number of pet insurance claims rose by 9% compared with the previous year. Among the claims being made was one for a python which needed treatment for anorexia. A dog needed surgery after swallowing a kebab stick, while another was treated for swallowing a sock. In total, pet insurers dealt with 686,000 claims for dogs – an 11% increase on 2014 – and 193,000 claims for cats – a 6% rise.

 However, most of Britain’s nine million dog owners and 7.9 million cat owners do not pay for insurance cover.
