Pet Insurance For Cairn Terriers

K9 COVER offers comprehensive pet insurance for your Cairn Terrier. This breed originates from the Isle of Skye and was traditionally bred by the island’s farmers. The Carin Terrier is an intelligent and affectionate dog and makes an ideal family pet. They are small in size but big on personality and have an excitable temperament that does require consistent training. To ensure your Cairn 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.

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.
