The Difference Between Pet Health Club Plans and Pet Insurance.
Pet Health Club Plans and Pet Insurance are different and ideally you need both.
A Pet Health Club Plan
At Charter Vets we offer a Pet Health Plan which makes it easy for you to protect your pet and your family against preventable diseases. Monthly payments start from £11.10 for a dog and £10.60 for a cat.
(price is dependent on your pets weight.)
Your Pet Health Club Plan will give you:
- FREE annual vaccinations/boosters.
Vaccinations included for dogs - Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Parainuenza, Leptospirosis, Kennel Cough. Vaccinations included for cats - Feline Leukaemia, Enteritis, Feline Inuenza.
- FREE worm and other parasite treatments all year.
- FREE annual check-ups which are important to enable early diagnosis of any potential health issues.
- 30% off micro-chipping.
- 25% off hydrotherapy treatments.
- 20% off routine dental suite treatments (scale and polish, dental radiography & extractions excluding general anaesthetic cost).

Pet Insurance cover is what you need to help when pets are poorly to cover the
cost of illness and injuries.
As our ability to diagnose and treat conditions of an increasingly complex nature expands, we recommend clients take out Pet Insurance to cover the unexpected bills in case your animal falls ill or suffers an accident.
Insurance can give you complete peace of mind to know that your pet can be treated to the highest standards without worrying about the cost. If you would like to discuss insurance, please call any of our locations and speak to the receptionists.
Please be aware of the difference between different Insurance Plans:
- 12 month policy
These provide cover for a condition for 12 months only, after that the condition is not covered.
- For life policy
We would reccommend a 'For Life Policy' as this will pay for a condition up to a given sum (decided upon when you take out your insurance) even if the problem is ongoing for the rest of your pets life, such as many skin allergies, arthritis, etc.
Cost examples of treatment - why it is important to be insured.

Direct Insurance claims
Many vet practices insist on payment at the time even for insured pets.
At Charter Vets we are happy to accept direct insurance claims for our insured patients, (other than Equine & Livestock policies). All we ask is that you provide a claim form and pay the policy excess at the time the pet is taken home from the hospital or consultation, as such it is sensible to have a claim form with your pets documents.
