Did you know that about 10% of pets have dental problems at one time or another? Sainsbury Pet Insurance also offers dental coverage.

Lucy Hunter of Sainsbury’s Pet Insurance commented: “It’s important your pet’s dental care isn’t overlooked as the consequences could cause the animal distress, put them at risk of infection and can be very costly. A good way to manage these costs is to take out adequate pet insurance that provides cover for both dental accident and illness.”
