Until now, civil liability insurance for pets in Spain was voluntary. Only dogs considered PPP and citizens of the Community of Madrid and the Basque Country, where all furry ones must have their own insurance. Now the new animal law aims to unify these regulations.
This liability insurance can be as complete as the owner chooses. But the most typical are those of damages to third parties, which cover damages and injuries that can be caused to other people, animals or things. But there are also insurances included in the home policy or even others with health coverage to save on veterinarians and dog vaccinations.
The one that will be required by the new Animal Welfare Law on a mandatory basis is the insurance to third parties throughout the national territorywhich can be around 30 or 40 euros per year depending on the company and raises the importance of responsible ownership and coexistence with our pets.
