When Patsy Bloom had to take several expensive trips to the vet with her dog, Jamie, she saw a gap in the market for pet insurance. Her and her business partner, David Simpson, launched Petplan.
Since Petplan’s inception in 1976, our priority has been to keep the nation’s pets healthy and their owners happy. By offering the very best pet insurance policies and great customer service we have helped millions of owners get their beloved pets back on their feet following illness and injury.
We are passionate about pets and as the true specialists in our market, it’s all we do. And after 40 years we continue to be the UK’s favourite pet insurance provider. We continue to work closely with vets, breeders and animal charities. We provide unrivalled support for veterinary staff helping them to inform their clients about the benefits of pet insurance.
We recognise that pets have ongoing conditions and therefore created our signature Covered For Life® policies. These provide ongoing cover for the whole of the pets life.
Today, Petplan insures over 1 million pets in the UK and continues to operate with the same intention as when the business was first created, with our sole focus on pets and their health.
