Animal Insurance Missing for Over A Million Owners

Published: 5/14/2010

Having looked at the situation for pet owners in the UK Sainsburys Bank has found that over a million owners do not have any insurance cover in place for their pets.

The answers provided by respondents to the Sainsburys Bank study shows that around half of pet owners do not think they need pet insurance. Of these most thought it was not necessary no matter what whilst a smaller percentage said they felt it unnecessary because their pet was in good health.

As a Sainsburys Bank spokesman explained, cats and dogs get ill just like people do, but there is no NHS for pets, hence the need for pet insurance.
