Veterinary practices and vet professionals themselves require Professional Indemnity insurance to protect themselves from litigation from Third Parties. Veterinary professionals are at risk from the services and work being performed on owner’s animals.
Professional Indemnity insurance protects you against Third-Party claims, being both damages and legal costs, from errors or omissions from your work.
Vets work with animals of all shapes and sizes. Your customers animal, and in some cases best friend, is important to them.

- Negligence whilst taking care of the animal
- Providing the wrong advice
