At BSAVA congress, Agria Pet Insurance will launch its own rabbit insurance policy, complementing existing cat and dog policies. Vets and nurses are welcome to visit Agria on stand 215 where they can find out all about the new cover and enter a prize draw to win up to £1000 worth of rabbit CPD and associated travel. Those that have managed to get hold of an Agria lucky carrot and code (available in the delegate bag) will also receive a delicious treat they can get their teeth into straight away.
The new rabbit policy has a number of unique features that will be attractive to practices. Potentially the most significant is cover for disease and accident dental care up to the maximum veterinary fees benefit.* In itself the maximum vet fees cover at up to £2500 is one of, if not the most, generous rabbit insurance covers available.
For rabbits that end up needing repeated dental procedures, this is a real lifeline. To benefit from the cover rabbit owners have to get an annual dental check with their vet every year and complete the recommended treatment..
Preventive healthcare is further encouraged with £25 available each year on higher levels of cover to help pay for health checks and booster vaccinations. Agria has also included travel and accommodation for referrals as part of its cover – a benefit rarely available on rabbit insurance – this will ensure that more rabbits get the specialist care they need when the condition warrants it.
Rabbits are being registered with vets in increasing numbers and the lifetime cost of rabbit ownership is now estimated at around £9000 but despite all this it is believed that many are still not receiving the healthcare they need.1
There are a variety of ways that practices can work with Agria – from displaying literature and giving pet owners the facility to set-up 4 week free cover notes for puppies and kittens, or becoming a fully-fledged Appointed Representative able to recommend the company’s lifetime cover and activate free 5 week free cover notes for puppies and kittens. Delegates can find out about all the options and rabbit insurance by speaking to any member of the Agria team on stand 215.

About Agria Pet Insurance
Agria is one of the world’s leading animal insurers, specialising in small animal and equine insurance. Founded in Sweden over 120 years ago, Agria came to the UK in 2009 and is based in Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire.
Agria UK works closely with veterinary practices, the Kennel Club and the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) and supports the work of numerous charities and rehoming centres by providing free pet insurance for 5 weeks for both puppies and rehomed rescue dogs of any age.
Since 2009, Agria UK has made donations to the Kennel Club Charitable Trust amounting to over £500,000.
Agria’s lifetime commitment to pet owners means that veterinary fees cover is reinstated every year that the insurance policy renews and maximum benefits are reapplied, even if previous claims have been made. This means that on-going conditions can be covered, even if the condition lasts for the whole of the pet’s life.
