Pet Insurance For Newfoundlands

K9 COVER offers comprehensive pet insurance for your Newfoundland. The Newfoundland is a large powerful dog, originally bred as a working dog.

The Newfoundland has a beautiful, shiny coat that requires regular care and attention. To ensure your Newfoundland 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.
