Why is pet insurance for older dogs more expensive?
Like humans, as they get older the risk of dogs having health or dental issues increases and the more likely they are to need medical care. Common conditions in older dogs include:
- gum disease
- kidney disease
All this means more insurance claims, which means higher premiums for owners of older dogs.
The average annual premium for an older dog was £204.48* but averaged out over a year this is just £3.93 a week for your family pet.
