Can I avoid alternative therapies?
If you’re not interested in your pet having access to these alternative therapies, you may think you can just choose a policy that doesn’t include them to save money.
However, Defaqto found that 96% of the 370 products on the market include alternative therapies, with 95% offering hydrotherapy and 94% including chiropractic procedures so it can be tricky to avoid.
But many of you are happy that these treatment are so readily available as they can really help your pets. For example, your pooch could be covered for physio if he’s broken a leg, or your moggy could get chiropractic help for her back problems. Defaqto revealed that the top three alternative therapies for British cats and dogs are acupuncture, homeopathy and herbal medicine.
