Pet Insurance For Chihuahuas

K9 COVER offers comprehensive pet insurance for your Chihuahua. The Chihuahua is named after a Mexican state and as a small breed you might think they are easy to look after, but they thrive on attention and need to be constantly entertained. They require good training to balance out their high energy and love to be part of a family. To ensure your Chihuahua 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 Chihuahuas

The Chihuahua is predisposed to some common health conditions. These include:

  • luxating patellar
  • hypoglycemia
  • tracheal collapse
  • tooth and gum disease
  • hydrocephalus

Typical Claims Costs

According to the Association of British Insurers the average cost of a pet insurance claim in 2022 rose to £771, 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.
