How do I make a claim?

You can start your claim online through your own policy portal. Using your portal will enable you to track your claim and view any correspondence relating to your policy online.

If you decide not to start your claim through your policy portal, please follow the steps below:

  1. Download and print a claim form.
  2. Your vet must complete and sign section 2 of the claim form.
  3. The named policyholder must then complete section 1 of the form and sign the appropriate sections.
  4. Please fill in all sections as any missing information may delay the claim decision.
  5. Your claim form should be returned to us with your pet’s medical history from the vets and originals of any invoices related to your pet's treatment.
  6. We can make the settlement to you or your veterinary surgery after applicable deductions such as your compulsory excess, any voluntary excess and any applicable co-insurance. This payment will end our liability in connection with the claim.
  7. You may wish to make a copy of any documents you send to us for your own records.

Post the signed claim form to us at the address below:

Paws and Claws Pet Insurance 
The Connect Centre, 
Kingston Crescent, 

Is it free to make a claim through my policy portal?

Yes! This is a free service we offer so why not take advantage! Don't worry if you haven't signed up to your portal yet, as long as you have your policy number and a few personal details to hand you can register right away.

Terms and Conditions surrounding claims

There is a 14-day waiting period on the policy that applies to illness. This means that no claims can be made for illness within the first 14-days of your policy start date, and any conditions that begin within this period will not be covered. (There is no waiting period for our Accident Only policies).

Please note that any pre-existing conditions are excluded under the terms and conditions of your policy, which can be viewed here.
