Choose VDS

VDS cover provides an unparalleled range of policy features and member benefits.     

For over 150 years, we have insured the veterinary profession, and only the veterinary profession.

We are a mutual society run by and for vets like you. 

  • We're one of the UK's oldest insurance companies, starting life as a mutual protection society in 1865.
  • We insure the practising profession against claims of veterinary negligence.
  • We've seen big changes in our 150 year history, but mutuality remains at the core of our unique service.

VDS cover provides an unparalleled range of policy features and member benefits, bringing peace of mind to you and your practice. We support and represent vets and nurses throughout RCVS/VCI investigations, with criminal and disciplinary cover included in the policy for every member.


You're a member, not just a customer - and we work hard to uphold your personal and practice reputation.
