How much is dog insurance?
In addition to this, your insurer will also take into account your dog itself in order to build an accurate picture of your dog’s health and gauge any potential risks. Factors your insurer may consider include:
- The breed of your dog – some dogs are prone to particular conditions, the size of your dog will have an impact on your policy cost – as a general rule, the bigger your pooch, the higher the cost.
- How posh your dog is – if you’ve got a pedigree, it’ll probably cost more to insure.
- How old your dog is – the older your dog is, the more likely it is to need to see the vet for conditions brought on by old age, as a result, your insurance will probably increase.
When you choose a policy make sure you read the exclusions carefully. Some policies will be invalidated if your dog becomes sick or develops a condition because its overweight; policies also won’t cover routine vaccinations or treatment such as worming medication.
So before your next walk, why not take some time to compare the market for dog insurance and be safe in the knowledge that whatever your heroic hound gets up to – you’ve got them covered.
