“Will do everything possible to avoid paying a claim”

Written on: 22/10/2014 by KyRobbo (1 review written)

Refused to pay vets fees on a claim I made, claiming that the incident was linked to a congenital/hereditary heart murmur (King Charles Spaniel) despite the vet checking vital signs and getting clear blood tests back. This left me out of pocket over £200 and also they refused to cover any other illness in the future that they could remotely/dubiously link to the heart murmur. Don't be fooled like I did with the comparison websites, the sales pitch of what they cover, how much they pay out… Read Full Review

I would highly recommend this company… Read Full Review

“Quick pay out, easy process”

Written on: 17/10/2014 by Kojo10 (1 review written)

We had to claim for our Maine Coon needing emergency treatment for an infection after being bitten by another cat on a Sunday night. It was a big bill, but the claim process was easy. Communication from Animal Friends was really quick and the pay out was within a couple of days of our accepted claim. The whole process from submitting our claim to receiving our payment was around 7-10 days. The only issue I had really was that we had to make 2 claims - one for the emergency vet and one for our… Read Full Review

“Brilliant Company”

Written on: 17/10/2014

Very easy to deal with, have happily (??!!) paid each claim submitted (direct to vet) for a long term problem with my 22month old doberman. Took many blood tests /allergy tests / skin scrapes etc initially before finally diagnosed demodex mites - requiring specialist baths and long term antibiotics,- but happily appears to be on the mend now. Various claims submitted over the last 9 months regarding this condition, and being a 35kg dog, everything costs more. Very happy with their service… Read Full Review

I claimed for a large amount following major surgery for my cat. I downloaded and printed the claim form and completed all I could. I then took it to the vets and they completed their part and sent off the forms for me. Even though it was for a substantial amount of money the claim was settled really quickly. I wish you guys did SKY TV!! Fantastic quick and easy… Read Full Review

“Avoid, avoid, avoid. ”

Written on: 16/10/2014 by 424Peterson (1 review written)

Animal Friends is extremely difficult to deal with - they are very efficient at taking payment but do everything in their power to avoid paying. For example, asking for a full medical history, the vet complies, then no payment. I would ring to check progress then they would say they didn't receive the full medical history from the vet used three years previously. I would provide the details then no payment, check again and they require current vet to acquire the previous history - they would… Read Full Review

We have come up with barriers about paying And exclusions and limits that are not immediately obvious and the vets report they have had difficulty with them paying on time. Would recommend going for the most expensive tarif or trying another service with very clear tariffs… Read Full Review

“animal friends failing to supply important information”

Written on: 07/10/2014 by DillanCole264 (1 review written)

I recently took cover out with animal friends and talking to the advisor he was very willing to sell me the 'upgrade' on the policy. I never got told about cooling off periods or if the dog has had previous illness' before, but on applying to claim off them they said the dogs illness is a direct link of a previous illness, which i didn't agree with at all. Also when i took the dog into the vets the day after i took the policy out it was for a whole different illness, now they refuse to pay out… Read Full Review
