Summary of the Benefits of Pet Healthcare in Spain and Europe with Protectapet
Pet Healthcare with Protectapet:-
will give you the peace of mind in the knowledge that should anything happen to your pet, you are covered by the Protectapet Healthcare policy for most things. You will not need to worry as the premium for your Protectapet Healthcare Policy in Spain and Europe, will cover the Veterinarians costs and the medication your cat or dog receives, (Subject to the terms and conditions of the contracted Protectapet Policy). There are specific exclusions and one should read the specific terms and conditions relating to this, particularly hereditary and congenital issues.
It is surprising that less than 10% of cats and dogs in Spain and Portugal, including those of a dangerous breed or disposition, are insured or covered by a Pet Healthcare plan. Compared to the cost of medical treatment the premiums for Pet Healthcare as opposed to Pet Insurance is extremely low, whereas Pet Insurance can be very expensive with relatively poor cover. If you compare pet insurance prices or get a quote from a pet insurance comparison quote site, you will see that insurance premiums for pet insurance in Spain is expensive. Hence we have introduced the Protectapet Healthcare Plans.
Protectapet are the European leaders:-
....and have had a big influence on the Pet Insurance industry as to what they can offer you as competitors to our products. They have tried, as far as regulation and compliance within the Pet Insurance industry will allow them, but have failed to offer any competitive products.
As well as medical expenses, the Protectapet Pet Healthcare policy will cover you for costs relating to accidents and injuries, loss from theft or straying, boarding kennel and cattery fees, death from accidents and illnesses, loss from theft or straying of your pet in the country of cover, loss of pet passport and pet health certificate, overseas pet travel cover, European pet Insurance, reimbursement of advertising costs, and Vets fees. A small excess, the lowest in Europe, applies to the policy.
Micro Chipping of Pets in Spain
Pets that have a Protectapet healthcare plan do not have to be micro-chipped to take out a policy. Other Pet Insurance companies will require you to micro-chip your pet before they will issue a policy. We recommend Micro-chipping your pet for identities sake in the event of loss or unless your pets are classified as a specific dangerous breed that is on the dangerous dog list or if the pet is over 20 kg.
Vaccinations for pet insurance in Spain.
Protectapet do require pets to be vaccinated. In an effort to reduce the over-vaccination of pets in Spain, as this is an annual requirement, we are looking into the possibility of providing cover for pets, cats and dogs in Spain that only vaccinate once every 3 years. As long as the pet has received the initial vaccinations we are hoping to provide insurance cover for cats and dogs that only need vaccinating every three years, rather than every year.
Pre-existing Conditions for Pets in Spain.
If your pet has a pre-existing condition, and it has been treated by the vet and the vet can supply a report that the pet no longer suffers from that pre-existing condition and has been free from that condition for a period of 6 months or more, than it can be considered for cover.
Complementary Treatments for Pets in Spain and Europe.
These include such items as acupuncture and homoeopathy as alternative treatments. Complimentary treatments for pets in Spain are offered up to the maximum benefit as per the terms and conditions of the Protectapet policy.
Foreign Travel for Pets in Spain and Europe.
Pets can be insured in Spain for travelling to other countries within Europe. Protectapet do provide a separate Healthcare Travel policy for pets that wish to emigrate to other countries. Your pet will need a valid pet passport and/or pet certificate and it will be your responsibility to ensure that you have all of the required and correct documentation for your destination. Protectapet will cover you for accidents and illnesses during the trip.
Cancellation of a Pet Healthcare Policy in Spain and Europe.

In the 1990’s Spain did not have any form of Pet Healthcare Plans or Pet Insurance in Spain at all. Expat’s living and working in Spain could bring Pets into Spain without any regulations imposed on them, but to return to the United Kingdom or any of the other European countries they would have to wait up to six months as their pets went through the rigorous trials of quarantine. This was extremely stressful for owners and pets alike. Vets bills, pet illnesses, unheard of in the UK and other European countries, meant that Pets were often exposed to expensive treatments and long periods of isolation.
Now, as Spain’s leading Pet Healthcare provider, Protectapet can supply you with a variety of Pet Healthcare plans, including options for travel and European cover, that will give you that peace of mind if or when your Pet gets ill.

Pet Insurance products are available in Spain from your traditional Insurance agents in Spain and Insurance Brokers in Spain but they are not the comprehensive type of Pet Healthcare plans that Protectapet provide.

Not many pet insurance providers can offer the use of any vet of your choice, and often the terms and conditions to these pet insurance policies are long, drawn out and complex.
You will not find us on any Pet comparison Website.
