Veterinary Practice Insurance FAQs

Each veterinary practice is different and a business insurance policy is often made up of a combination of different covers, which might include public and product liability through to malpractice. The cost of your policy will also depend on factors such as the size of your practice and the level of covers you need.

If an animal is injured and it is not due to any treatment or care, this would fall under public liability.

A standard surgery package insurance will not typically cover claims arising from malpractice and would need to be purchased separately.

This will depend if you have told the insurers that you hold both chilled and non-chilled medicines / drugs when you were taking out your policy and if it is listed as insured on your policy schedule.
