I would like to write a nice review for Vets Medicover. I took out the cover on my spaniel last year, and I'm so glad I did. My boy started showing problems walking at the start of 2012, and when he didn't get better, he was referred to an expensive private neurologist who recommended MRI scans, which of course cost a fortune with anaesthaesia, hospitalisation, etc. Unfortunately the scans showed a large inoperable brain tumour, and the dog was put down at the vet's recommendation. The prognosis and outcome were terrible, and I've been devastated by the loss of my boy. However, the positive experience out of this was the fast and efficient cover VetsMedicover provided for my dog's expensive treatments. It was nearly £2000 in total, and Vetsmedicover paid nearly all of it except the excess, cremation, and euthanasia. Their payment was extremely fast, even faster then the final bill which arrived by post from the neurologist, so that gives you an idea. Therefore, I was able to have the money in my account to pay off the vet bill once the invoice finally arrived. If it hadn't been for the cover, I may not have been able to afford the MRI scans, and the dog may have suffered on for many weeks more without having a definite idea of what was wrong with him. The only disagreement I might have would be that Vetsmedicover didn't cover the cost of euthanasia at my vet's recommendation. Also, one should be warned that once you take out the policy, you are locked in for a year once a claim has been made. Over all, however, I highly recommend Vets Medicover. It may not cover the frills, but the vet bill cover and service was fantastic in my experience. Given the extraordinary and rising costs of vet bills, £10,000 cover is an great amount of vet bills cover to have. It may not even seem so much in a few years time...
