Healthy Pets are a specialist pet insurance company but they do not offer any lifetime pet insurance policies. You will have to pay a percentage of vet fees from when your pet is 5 years old which is younger than for many other companies (the average is about 8 years). There are also a few limitations of the policy that you need to be aware of.

Healthy Pets is an independent specialist insurance company which has been in business since 1996.
Their policies are underwritten by Great Lakes Reinsurance UK which is based in London.
Claims are administered by Ultimate Pet Partners which is an appointed representative for Ultimate Insurance Solutions Ltd.
The claims satisfaction survey conducted by our sister site – Pet Insurance Surveys – in October 2014 ranked Healthy Pets 15th out of the 16 pet insurance companies. This was obviously concerning but unfortunately we found few other reviews available on the internet to either back up or contradict this finding. Read Healthy Pets Customer Reviews analysis
