Can I get pet insurance if I don't know how old my pet is?

With more and more people choosing to adopt pets from shelters this is becoming a common problem. If you aren't sure of your pet's age then your vet will be able to help you make an informed guess, based the condition of its teeth and other indicators.

We're happy to accept an honest estimate of your pet's age in your application. However, if your pet is an older animal we may require records of an examination by your vet to determine if it qualifies for our comprehensive pet insurance.
