Benefits and Small Print
Purely Pets include cover for euthanasia, limited prescription food and dental treatment for accidental injury.
The death or loss benefit payable is based on the purchase price of your pet (rather than market value). However this is discounted as the pet gets older. For example you receive only 90% of the benefit for a 1-year-old, 25% for a 6-year-old and nothing for pets who are aged 8 or over.
In our opinion the small print is has several exclusions which are not found in most other policies.
