Customer Review for
1/10 insurance rip off once again
I have plus level cover for my dog. The total claim history is 3, all non chronic conditions and only 1 with prescribed 2 week treatment in the last 12 months. 2016 price £598.28, this year £1,223.87 which is frankly disgusting.
I am told that the reasons are;
increase in vet fees
'sensitive' breed related information that they are not willing to make public
my dog is another year older (she is not even 5 yet!)
the claim history, as detailed above
I am a professional dog behaviourist who is well aware of breed health issues. Running a broad brush across all dog owners based on generic data is at best unfair and at most a recipe for ripping off well intentioned clients trying to do their best for their animal in this scare mongering insurance driven society we live in. Dogs should be considered on an individual basis, not stereotyped.
I can't help but wonder if Dick Turpin works for John Lewis who have shot down in my estimation from the reliable, respected and genuine organisation to a company that is leading the way in gold digging at the expense of animal health.
