Avoid Them


I have just had to have my little Pug put to sleep after a short illness, she was insured with them for 10 years. I have a vet bill for £2000
ANIMAL FRIENDS will not pay out, they dont care, they dont listen, they should not be trading. PLEASE DO NOT USE THEM

Have just had our first claim refused, as our vet told us Animal Friends would! Have immediately cancelled our ~Direct Debit - they can fight us for any more. They used a "Per-Existing Condition"clause, and for a condition only just diagnosed. DO NOT, NEVER, USER ANIMAL FRIENDS. THEY ARE AS DISHONEST AS BANKERS.

I totally agree! Cooper has just been diagnosed with a ruptured ligament in his shoulder after visiting 4 different vets. Animal Friends are now refusing to pay out £600 for the X-rays because his notes say he had existing conditions for lameness. Even after discussing with them to explain these conditions were for dry and cut pads - there response was I should have advised of the limping when I took out the policy. To say I am furious is an understatement. Their policy isn't worth the paper it is written on!

Rachel, take your case to the ombudsman...if you took the policy out online you have a case as they did nit ask you a direct question. Also they have to prove they are linked. Get your vet to write to the ombudsman and you will have a better chance xxx
