Good evening everyone,

Does anyone in the UK know whether I can get my older tortoises's insured? Jacky a Greek Tortoise is 86 and Daisy another Greek Tortoise is 79. Anyone who has read my Jacky And Daisy Are On The Move thread will know that Daisy is under a vet at the moment.

Thankyou very much.

Personally I have never heard of health insurance for a tortoise or turtle. I doubt it exists.

I did see at my veterinarian's office, Nationwide has exotic pet insurance. For tortoises 🐢 and turtles. Going to get it for our tortoises.
IWe have it for our 2 Westies. It is worth it for standard health care and emergencies.

Pet insurance is more a UK/Europe thing for sure. But, it’s here in the
States as well.

Oh its here in the states, been here a long time. Mostly for dogs and cats. It's been over 13 years since I carried it. Haven't looked into it since. Wasn't really worth it. It seems to be getting more customers last few years. However I still have never seen it for tortoises. Maybe it's a newer add.

All the advice I have received from both insurers and a Tortoise club I belong to, is to set aside a small sum every month in an easy-access savings/bank account. Far better than trying to find insurers.
