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.

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.
