Pet insurance company Petplan and specialist pet retailer Pets at Home have announced a new insurance partnership.
In a move where Petplan adds retail to its extensive distribution network, the partnership will see Pets at Home recommending Petplan insurance to any new insurance customers from 10 November.
Jonny Armstrong, head of insurance for Pets at Home, said: “We share Petplan’s belief that pet insurance is an integral part of responsible pet ownership. 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.
“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.
