We hope you’ll find everything you need in our Quick Help, but if there are any other questions get in contact.
Why is Animor so different to pet insurance or a vet pet health plan?
There’s a lot of uncertainty that comes with owning a pet.
Some of us chose to insure our pets, but there’s still the uncertainty of not knowing whether you bought the right policy (pet insurance can be very confusing), did you get the best deal, how much will the premium go up next year, will the policy pay out when you need it to, will it cover the whole cost of the treatment and if not, how much will you have to pay?
Around three quarters of pets are uninsured, their owners preferring to pay for healthcare and treatment when its needed, facing the uncertainty of what health problems their pet might have and what the treatment is going to cost.
Vet health plans only cover the cost of annual vaccinations and perhaps preventative treatment.
Animor membership is a new alternative for all pet owners. Animor offers all pet owners a completely new approach to their pet’s health that’s a simple, safe and affordable alternative to the uncertainty of either pet insurance or paying for treatment when its needed. Your pets Animor membership can be all inclusive (for Prevent & Care and Prevent & Care+ members) and the treatment your pets will receive is free when you need it, giving you complete peace of mind that there are going to be no shocks or nasty surprises.
What’s Animor’s overall approach?
We put the health of your pet at the heart of everything we do, so we see all our members at least twice a year for an Animor Vitality health assessment, also giving all the annual vaccinations and other preventative treatments when your pet needs them.
Of course, Animor is there if your pet needs our help with a health issue.
Animor offers simple, comprehensive and affordable pet healthcare for its members.
What if I already have pet insurance?
You can still sign-up as an Animor Prevent member for all your pets’ vaccinations, preventative treatment, and twice yearly Animor Vitality health assessments. Then come and see us when your pet needs help and we’ll treat them on a pay-as-you-go basis. When you’re in the Pet Healthcare Centre let us know when you’re pet insurance is due to renew and when it does, you can choose for your pet to join us as either a Prevent & Care or Prevent & Care+ member.
What happens if I already have a health plan with a vet?
