“You can’t teach an old dog, new tricks”

Well here at Petwise, we think you can, which is why we’ve remodelled our insurance scheme to now offer dog owners a choice of senior pet insurance cover levels.

Each level is designed with you and your senior dog in mind. With a choice of seven cover levels, we are confident you’ll find a policy that’s right for you which will keep your old dog learning new tricks!

Dog insurance cover levels overview

Why choose Petwise senior dog insurance?

Regardless of age, all dogs get into scrapes and, like us humans, an ageing dog can develop age related illnesses and become more susceptible to disease.

A carefully selected insurance policy, which can help cover these eventualities, can be a welcome safety net for those unforeseen accidents and illnesses and can help provide a great quality of life without compromise for your dog, as they age.

Some of our benefits include:

Do you have an upper age limit for your older dog insurance?

The exceptional care we give our animals these days’ means that they are living longer which is why it’s even more important to consider insuring your pet right through to their golden years.

“A dog is for life, not just for Christmas”

Petwise believes owning a dog is a lifelong responsibility, which is why there is no upper age limit on any of our policies! So whether your dog is seven or 17, we’ll keep your partnership covered the whole way.

If you took your policy out before 7th April 2021 your cover and the policy benefits and exclusions will differ from those displayed above. Please CLICK HERE to access your policy documents.

Most puppies will let you brush their teeth with a finger brush to keep them clean.
