Agria Pet Insurance has announced that it will support American XL Bully owners by providing lifetime veterinary fee cover for both existing and new policy holders.

The company says that although some UK insurers are continuing to offer protection to existing policy holders, Agria is one of the few insurers to offer lifetime veterinary fee cover to new customers.

Insurance will be available to owners who have an exemption certificate.

Vicki Wentworth, Managing Director at Agria Pet Insurance, said: “We know that the last few months have been particularly difficult for owners of American XLBully dogs, and we are pleased to be able to reassure them that we can provide lifetime veterinary fee cover for their dog, so we can support them in prioritising their pet’s welfare”.

The company says that although it can provide cover for veterinary fees, it can't cover third party liability.

Agria is advising owners to contact an organisation such as Dogs Trust which can provide third party cover.
