Agria's Lifetime Dog Insurance

Not all pet insurance is the same. Many policies only cover conditions for up to 12 months or they place a financial limit per condition throughout your pet’s life. After the time period or financial limits are exceeded, any further bills are down to you.

Agria Pet Insurance is different.

At Agria, we believe pet insurance should last your pet’s lifetime. Our policies provide lifelong vet’s fees cover for illnesses and injuries! This means that, provided your policy is renewed each year, your maximum benefit will be refreshed, providing cover for ongoing conditions. So, whatever happens throughout your pet’s life, we’ll always be there for you and your pet.

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about our insurance

Agria, the providers of BASC Dog Insurance, is happy to provide cover for working dogs and most importantly, cover while they are at shoots and events.

BASC chose the Agria policy specifically with members in mind, congenital and hereditary problems are included as long as they hadn’t been diagnosed or weren’t showing signs before the policy started.

Most policies in the market don’t cover breeding risks at all. BASC Dog Insurance has an optional benefit that can be added when you decide whether you will breed from a bitch. It covers gestation, whelping, puppies’ vet fees pre-sale and even includes Caesarean sections for the vast majority of breeds.

As with most things, you get what you pay for and the cheaper the policy the less it’s likely to cover. Your BASC policy offers lifetime vet’s fees cover ensuring that chronic, on-going conditions can be covered for the life of your dog.

Many policies in the market will only pay for an illness for 12 months from when it starts or is diagnosed, after which the condition is excluded and further claims will not be paid. Even if you change to a different policy that condition will be treated as pre-existing on the new policy and excluded. The BASC Dog Insurance policy offers on-going cover for on-going conditions - as long as the policy is renewed each year and premiums are kept up to date.

Your BASC policy will include vets’ fees cover, help to find a lost dog, essential third party liability cover and travel and expenses if your vet refers your dog to a specialist. All the other benefits such as death or loss cover, breeding risks, boarding fees, holiday cancellation and overseas travel are optional, allowing you to choose the protection you need without paying for cover you don’t want.

Some policies in the market charge more if you are unlucky and your dog is ill or injured. BASC Dog Insurance does not penalise members who need to make claims – however large those claims may be.

Out of preference and with agreement from your vet we will pay the practice directly by bank transfer. Alternatively, if you prefer, we can pay you.

The cost of drugs purchased over the Internet can be claimed provided your vet has prescribed the drug to treat your dog.
