    Can you tell me please if any of you have travel insurance for your dog? This being long stay type as we go away for 5 months. Any insurance company names etc would help please, the few I have tried only do shorter term.

    Should be 'For our best friend'. I left my brain somewhere when I retired, anyone seen it?

    Who did you go with in the end?
    We are tempted by asda but are having trouble funding out if there's anything they don't cover
    We got stung for £600 recently when pet protect wouldn't cover an exploratory investigation under anaesthetic to see why our dog was reverse sneezing. They don't cover anything ingested through the nasal passage - very random exception we thought. Very keen now to read the small print but with asda there is none just broad bullet points.
    Any advice appreciated

    Tesco have just underwritten my dogs insurance to cover our 6 month in Europe, at no extra cost ! Thank You Tesco ! I did get a good quote from LV though while waiting for Tescos decision, they were able to give me a quote for a 10 year old dog which washout same price. It doesn't cost a lot ore than the rate you pay for being at home but I wouldn't be without it.
    Try LV first as Tesco don't do it routinely but LV do.

    We went finally with Debenhams and got a £30 gift card which'll be handy for xmas when I get it in three months!
    - premium of £25 a month and its up to 340 days a year or something. Zenith underwrites therm. Apparently they liaise well with foreign vets.
