There are four categories of vets we provide cover for. They are rated according to their animal focus:

  • Domestic and exotics, small animals, including pedigree animals but excluding animals used for professional breeding

Category C:

  • Commercial general practice
  • Commercial livestock, agriculture including extensive farming focused on livestock, equine (recreational) but excluding stud farming, professional or horse racing practices. (Animals in category A and B are also included)

Category D:

  • Commercial specialised practice
  • Wildlife, zoological, aquaculture and aquariums, professional (competition) and/or racehorse and stud farming, commercial dog breeding, intensive farming, dairies larger than 30 head of cattle being milked, and professional breeders

The product was initiated by the South African Veterinary Association (SAVA). Discounts of up to 7,5% are offered if 75% of the vets in the practice are SAVA members.

The Vet Protect offering also covers all costs associated with legal representation at any counsel complaints.

We are able to offer limits up to R10 million.

Vet Protect is run through an exclusive agreement with a sole broker, Leonie Delgado Platinum Portfolios CC.
