Ok but concerned due to policy changes

I've registered my pug with Animal Friends since he was 4 months old. He had a nasty ear infection which was caused by nothing other than water getting into his ear however they won't cover him for any issues with his ears for the rest of his life....

Animal Friends offers competitive rates and good customer service. I would only like to feedback that they could provide more information as to the options available. We went for the minimum as things get very confusing when it comes to insurance and, unfortunately, we ended up paying £1,500 for our cat to have an operation that wasn't covered on the insurance.

Cannot read or update their systems correctly. Now in debt because of their poor communication skills!

Experience of making a claim has been appalling. They seem incapable of reading and understanding basic English. From incorrectly updating my records from my initial claim form to failing to notice details that may have invalidated my claim. They...

Experience of making a claim has been appalling. They seem incapable of reading and understanding basic English. From incorrectly updating my records from my initial claim form to failing to notice details that may have invalidated my claim. They have given me information that has led me to continue with treatment but are now refusing to continue with the clsim, without money I do not have. Don't touch them with a very long barge pole.

This is the second year i have chosen Animal Friends for my pet insurance. The quote was very competitive even on renewal ( we all know the price shoots up when renewal time comes around) . I rang them up and had a really good customer assistant on the end of the line. She made sure my cover was what i needed and even managed to shave a little off my already decent quote. I would recommend them .

I had my boy as a pup.his premium was £56 a month.used this firm fir my last dog and they were fine,no excessive hikes in premiums and though my boys premium was double l was fine with it.

My boy was unlucky first year he had elbow and hip surgery done.
His renewal premium went up to £116 a month.

Could just afford it but second year throat operation and then we found out at 19 months old he had terminal inoperable cancer.
we were so glad we had insurance so we could give him good quality of life.

His second renewal came in at £406 a month £5000 a year! !!!
Now if l had no mortgage l would have done my bestt but we couldnt afford that.

Despite numerous phone calls as they knew he was terminally ill and at best we only had a year left with him, they refused to budge and told me the price on the website was only for healthy pets.

My boy was pts at 26 months old, we couldnt afford the extortionate renewal.
In less than a year it had gone up 728% .

My policy was lifetime cover and a top one.

Avoid like the plague as if your pet becomes ill they will sting you for it when renewal comes around as they know you cant go elsewhere with a pre eexisting condition.
Not helpful or ethical,like to look good but fall short on customer service.
