Pet Insurance For Malteses

K9 COVER offers comprehensive pet insurance for your Maltese. The Maltese is an elegant breed of dog, known for their long, white shiny coat. They are considered toy dogs due to their size and are gentle and happy dogs who love to be part of a loving family. Despite their small size, Maltese dogs love to go for walks and be part of an active outdoor lifestyle. To ensure your Maltese 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 Malteses

The Maltese is prone to some common health conditions. These include:

  • licking
  • leg problems
  • eye problems
  • ear problems
  • bad breath

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.
