If you're a pet owner, you undoubtedly want to do the best you can for your furry friend, and a lot of that could come down to the pet insurance policy you choose. But how can you be confident you're making the right decision? Go with a company that's been awarded one of our Star Ratings!

We've just expanded our well-known Star Ratings to include the brand new category of Pet Insurance, offering an extra seal of approval when you're tracking down the right cat or dog policy. We've been providing impartial analysis of financial products for nearly 30 years, so our Star Ratings can be trusted – which means that if you spot our logo, you know you've found a product you can rely on.

The Moneyfacts Pet Insurance Star Ratings are based on the weighting of the most relevant product features, outside of the policy premiums, that can help you choose your ideal product. They offer an extra degree of confidence that the pet insurance policy of your choice provides all the protections you require; essentially, the rating acts as an independent badge of quality, so be on the lookout for our logo when you're comparing policies.

"Worrying about a sick or injured pet can be stressful enough without also being concerned about the financial cost associated with treatment," said Samantha Owens, Insight Manager at Moneyfacts. "Taking out the right policy for your pet can take some of this stress away, but it can be confusing to know whether all accidents and illnesses are covered, what the best limits are and whether any unavoidable costs outside treatment may be excluded.

"The Moneyfacts Pet Insurance Star Ratings help customers direct their focus by highlighting the most comprehensive products with the most competitive limits, for both cat and dog policies."

The full list of policies that have been awarded a four or five-star rating can be found here; if you're about to begin your policy search, this could be a great place to start.
