Shared belief

It allows owners to seek veterinary advice at the earliest opportunity and undertake the necessary treatment to ensure the long-term health of their pet, something we know pet owners prioritise.”

James Barnes head of sales and partnerships at Petplan added: “Petplan has been helping look after the nation’s pets for the past 40 years. We understand the love people have for their pets and as a result, safeguarding their health and welfare is – and always will be – our number one priority.

Equally committed

“We know Pets at Home share this ethos and are equally committed to responsible pet ownership, making the partnership a natural move for us to help extend our reach into the retail sector,” he added.

From 10 November, Pets At Home insurance customers will be invited to renew onto a new Pets At Home product underwritten by Petplan’s parent company Allianz Insurance plc.
