- Does the policy fit with your budget?
- Are there any age restrictions?
- What are the different excess levels available?
- Does cover cease or reduce once the pet reaches a certain age?
- What are the annual benefit limits for different conditions?
- Is there any waiting periods? What conditions fall under these?
- What are the inclusions and exclusions
- Dental Illness — a number of brands charge extra for this
- Cruciate ligaments

- How difficult is it to claim and how quickly are claims settled?
