Is Your Gun Dog Correctly Insured?

14 July 2015

UK - Did you know that most regular dog insurance schemes do not cover gun dogs or injuries they may sustain whilst out on a shoot?

Gun dogs may get injured while out on a shoot and, while generally less frequent, claims for these injuries can run into thousands which regular insurance may not cover.

Some of the injuries gundogs can suffer include cuts and gashes caused by jumping wire or jagged and abrasive obstacles, as well as more severe injuries such as cruciate ligaments, lameness, cut pads, and muscular strains.

The different roles performed by the dogs mean injuries can be varied.

Bought By Many, a company bringing people power to insurance, therefore decided that the pet insurance industry needed to create more options for gun dogs and their owners and so has worked with Lifetime Pet Cover to create a policy specifically tailor to them.

"We were surprised when we realised that most basic pet insurance policies will not cover dogs for injuries sustained while on a shoot, many other policies will not pay out twice for the same condition or injury and the majority don’t have a clear position," said the company.

Steven Mendel, Co-Founder and CEO of Bought By Many said: "We're delighted to have found an affordable lifetime policy for gun dogs, which are traditionally uninsurable or very expensive. Lifetime Pet Cover offers vet bills cover up to £10,000, and £1m of public liability cover, making it an incredibly competitive offer - even before the 10 per cent discount."

Now, gun dog owners can get lifetime dog insurance for as little as £22.46 a month from Lifetime Pet Cover when buying through Bought By Many.
