Whether retailers or vets are visiting Crufts – the world’s largest dog show – for business or pleasure, there are plenty of reasons to stop by the Agria Pet Insurance stands in Hall 2 & 3.

In Hall 2, it’s all about the pleasure, with the opportunity to win a car by entering the right combination in the safe. Pet owners can also enjoy 4 months half price on any policy taken out at the show. For those that can’t make it there for the four show days, there’s the opportunity to get into the Crufts spirit with a generous money saving 4 months half price offer on pet insurance by visiting the Agria website.* This attractive incentive is a great opportunity to increase the number of insured clients within practices.

For a more business orientated conversation, vets and retailers can head for the Agria International stand in Hall 3 to discuss the ways their business can work with the company. Agria gives vet practices the opportunity to recommend Agria’s lifetime cover and activate ‘5 Weeks Free’ insurance.

Vets who speak to breeders regularly want to know all about Agria’s unique breeding risk cover that provides protection for breeding bitches throughout pregnancy and birth and also covers the puppies – a condition normally excluded from standard policies.

Combined with introductory ‘5 Weeks Free’ puppy insurance, that means there’s now the opportunity for dogs to enjoy uninterrupted cover throughout life.** It’s also a great opportunity for breeders to ensure that their breeding bitches enjoy the highest standards of critical care without worries about affordability if things go wrong.

Rehoming organisations will want to know all about the free 5 weeks insurance provided by Agria for dogs of any age that are rehomed to new owners – there are no age limits, ensuring new owners can get off to the same great start with their older pet.

Agria will also be presenting a cheque for £75,000 to the Kennel Club Charitable Trust – a charity that helps look after the health and welfare of all dogs. The donation includes a contribution direct from Agria and breeder rewards that insured breeders have chosen to donate to charity. Since 2009 Agria has donated over £500,000 to the charity.

The final word goes to Alastair Cook, Head of Sales and Marketing at Agria, “Amidst the glamour of Crufts it’s easy for pet owners to forget about what’s absolutely essential to the health and happiness of their pet. That should start with high quality veterinary care. We’ll be reminding dog owners that they should be looking to protect the family pet through insurance before going on to enjoy everything else that Crufts offers.”
