Compare Dog Insurance Northern Ireland

We all love dogs, and owning a dog had grown in popularity in the North of Ireland. Taking the dog for a walk will not only keep the dog healthy, but also help keep the owner fit. In Asia, it is not uncommon to see toy dogs being pushed around shopping centres in dog prams. This is still a rare sight in Belfast, but times are a changing.

Owning a dog comes with responsibilities not only to keep the dog fit, but also taking care of its health. A visit to the Vet can wok out expensive and if your dog decides to bite someone you could face a hefty liability claim. For these two reason alone, you should consider taking out a dog insurance NI policy. 

We have partnered with Quotezone who have a panel of insurance providers that specialise in providing dog insurance to NI residents. If you own a cat or a rabbit, do not feel left as they can also provide quotes for Rabbit and Cat insurance.

Do I legally have to have insurance for my dog?

Traditionally, when you think of pet insurance NI, you think of vet bills. Whilst at the core of every dog insurance NI policy will include cover for sickness and medical bills, more and more providers are also offering an option to include dog public liability cover. This type of cover provides you with financial protection should your dog cause damage to the property of a third party or even bites a member of the public. This is an important cover that animal owners should consider, simply because your financial liability ( the amount awarded to the third party )  in these types of claims can be huge. Public liability for dogs can also may also be called one of the following, depending on the per insurance company.  

  • Legal action cover
  • Public liability cover
  • Third party liability insurance

Like actual dog medical insurance, liability is not a legal requirement, but is something that should be given serious thought given your potential risk of a valid or even a fraudulent claim.  During the quote process, you can select the amount of liability to be included in your dog insurance policy

Below, we have listed some example of scenarios that third-party liability insurance can provide cover for:

  • Dog slips the lead and bites another dog, cat or livestock
  • Dog slips the lead and cause a traffic accident.
  • Dog simply bites another person

Does Dog insurance NI pay out on Death?

Apart from vet bills and medication, which will be at the core of any dog insurance NI policy, you may also select to add additional elements. One of these is cover for loss, particularly relevant if your dog was an expensive purchase. This additional cover can pay out for loss, theft and death. Some polices will even pay for advertising to help reunite the dog and its owner.
