Insurance for other pets

Pet insurance from Pet-ID doesn’t stop at cats and dogs. We offer choice, flexibility, and a range of optional extras for species including birds, reptiles, tortoises and small mammals.


We all do our best to look after our exotic pets but you never know when your pet may become ill. Any sign of weakness in the wild would make them easy prey so exotic pets are known to hide their condition until they are very ill. Sometimes this can mean that hospitalisation and intensive care is required.

You’ll want your pet to get the best possible treatment but the cost of vet bills can build up quickly and the specialised equipment and skills required in caring for exotics can mean increased costs. Pet insurance can help pay for the treatment your pet needs and help you avoid extra stress and worry.
