It was recently announced that both Lloyds TSB and Halifax have made the decision to leave the pet insurance market. Customers policies will still be honoured until expiration. This does not extend to "cover for life" customers leaving thousands of responsible pet owners, who decided to take precautions in case their pets developed a long term health problem, in the lurch. No other company will cover pets with pre-existing conditions leaving animals with cancer, diabetes, heart problems, skin problems and epilepsy in danger of being euthanised if their owners are unable to afford the vets bills, this is very likely to be the case in when considering the current state of the economic climate.
Lloyds TSB and Halifax have blood on their hands and are making pets pay the price for their bad judgement. If they are allowed to get away with this there is a strong chance that other insurers will follow suit.
