Do I need insurance for a rabbit?

Rabbits may seem like they don’t need a lot of work and attention, but that doesn’t stop them from getting into accidents, falling ill, or contracting any diseases. In comparison to cats and dogs, rabbits are a little less maintenance however, they still need to be covered by a comprehensive insurance policy. Even with a tiny bunny as a pet, your vet bills can easily rack up.  

While vet bills aren’t getting any cheaper, it’s worth making sure your rabbit can get the care they need without putting a big dent in your bank account. 

Rabbit insurance is the peace of mind you need to make sure your pet is well-catered for when they need it most.

What levels of cover can I get?

Three main types of pet insurance policies cover vet fees. Decide which policy best suits the needs of your furry friend. They start from the most expensive and comprehensive and then decrease with the lower type of cover you get. 

  • Lifetime

    The most comprehensive cover that covers vet fees up to a maximum amount each year for all conditions over your pet’s lifetime

  • Per Condition

    This policy offers you maximum benefit per condition. Once your maximum has been reached, you can no longer claim on that condition

  • Time limited

    Time limited pet insurance offers a fixed sum for each illness or injury your pet gets. Your pet will be covered for a limited term per condition (usually 12 months).

"

It’s not just dogs, cats or larger animals where pet insurance can be beneficial. Rabbit lovers might also want to consider cover for their bunnies, especially expensive rare breeds. See the cover in the context of how much your pet is worth to you. When you’re already paying for food and other expenses, the right insurance at the right price can make sense.
