The Scottish Terrier is one of five terrier breeds to have originated in Scotland and is recognised for being friendly and loyal. They are easy to train and do not require a lot of attention so they make excellent house guests. To ensure your Scottish 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.
