You can get a lifetime dog insurance policy for as little as £14.71 per month according to Compare by Review data in November 2020. *
*This figure is based on lifetime pet insurance for accidents and illnesses for a four-year-old Labrador who has been spayed and chipped, cost £1000 and lives at a CM postcode.
The cost of puppy insurance will vary depending on a range of factors, mainly the type of policy you choose. Your premium will cost more if you opt for a more comprehensive policy, for example, accident only dog insurance is far cheaper than lifetime dog insurance. Your postcode will also impact the amount you pay because the cost of vet treatment is higher in some parts of the UK. If you live in an area where treatment is known to cost more, it’s likely that you’ll have to pay a higher premium. Pet insurance for older dogs generally costs more too as older dogs are at higher risk of developing health problems or illnesses. And finally, if you have a pedigree dog, you can expect to pay more to insure your dog.
