    Hi,

    Does anyone know of a pet insurance company that lets you taylor make a policy. I've been looking around and most policies include things like boarding, travel, lost pet etc. All I want is a policy that covers illness with at least £8000 cover. I'm sure including all the rest just bumps up the policy price. Thanks to anyone that replies.

    I suggest you need to cover injury too. The company you probably need is VetsMediCover. They do a £10,000 cover which covers illness and injury and it's a single price. There's a link at the bottom of this page. You should be aware that they pretty much insist on paying the vet directly though - and that means your vet must agree to be paid by them.

    it'd probably be a good idea to ring round the companies and speak to them directly to see if you can work anything out that is specific :)

    It's unlikely. Hardly anyone will start a policy for a dog aged 8 or over. If they do the excess payable on a claim will be high.
