Dogs Today

“I’ve known Neil Flint for more than a decade and I am sure no one knows more about the pet insurance market than him. His regular articles in our magazine have greatly helped our readers understand this confusing and fast-changing market. Pet insurance has never been more essential or more confusing! It is essential that everyone has their eyes wide open and knows precisely what they are buying and from where. Almost anything can be described as pet insurance and I really do worry for those who just choose on premium cost alone. It is heartbreaking to hear of cases where dogs are diagnosed with chronic conditions which quickly become exempt from claims with cheaper insurance. Some companies may claim to give lifetime cover but then have a track record of increasing premiums to such a ridiculously high level that the pet owner is forced to stop insuring. Only someone with a decent track record will have a feel for who is the most likely to be trusted. In these very turbulent times I have no hesitation in recommending others to seek out his opinion.

“To offer clients peace of mind in knowing that they will never have to compromise on the level of veterinary care for their pets, we strongly recommend that they insure their pets. Since we are not FSA-registered, we are not allowed to advise clients on the best policy for their pet, so we always point them in the direction of VIP Pet Insurance. We have found they provide excellent, impartial advice, tailored to the needs of each client.

Testimonial from the client

“I started insuring my dogs years ago before I’ d even heard of VIP. We had a problem – I discovered VIP and have used them as pet insurance brokers ever since. They know far more about the insurance companies than I could ever find out and I would never take out a policy without going through them. They are extremely friendly and helpful and always ring back and follow up whatever has been decided.
