Pet Insurance For Border Terriers

K9 COVER offers comprehensive pet insurance for your Border Terrier. Bred as a fox and vermin hunter, the Border Terrier is a small rough-coated dog that is agile and energetic. These dogs have a high energy level and require regular walks and stimulation to keep them under control. Without this the Border Terrier can become agitated and excitable making them difficult pets to own. To ensure your Border Terrier gets the care they need, make sure you invest in pet insurance. We have a range of options to suit the age and medical history of your dog.

Common Medical Conditions For Border Terriers

Border Terriers are strong dogs that are unfortunately prone to genetic problems. These conditions include:

  • hip dysplasia
  • perthese disease
  • heart defects
  • cataracts
  • progressive retinal atrophy

Typical Claims Costs

A survey conducted by the BBC in 2019 found that the average pet insurance claim had risen to £793, and the overwhelming number of payouts were to meet veterinary bills. Depending on location, a typical estimate for your dog to have x-rays, an intravenous drip and some painkillers as part of an overnight stay might start from around £1,600. Operations to repair fractures begin at around £950 and for more complicated work such as hip replacement the fee can easily rise to £3,500.
