Can you insure Small Birds who have recently been unwell?

If your small bird has seen a vet for an accident or illness in the last 3 months, we’re not able to insure them.

Following a 12 week treatment free period, you can insure them, providing they’re fit and healthy. Please note that any pre-existing conditions cannot be covered in the first 12 months of insurance.

Caring for your small bird

Small birds make wonderful pets and bring lots of joy to their owners.

Owning a small bird requires a number of considerations and different breeds of bird will have different nuances.

The main considerations for all types include how many birds you wish to own, many types of small birds are best suited to live in pairs or groups and it’s worth checking depending on which bird you own. In addition to this, you’ll have other considerations such as housing, diet and entertainment, as many birds such as cockatiels enjoy toys such as bells.

You may also wish to tame your bird which may take a little time.

Furthermore, you’ll most likely have a keen interest in your small birds health and be registered with a vet to ensure your pet receives the care they need if they become unwell.

Any signs of illness shouldn’t be ignored. Birds hide illness, and by the time it is obvious, it could be quite advanced.
