K9 Pet Insurance offers great value pet insurance for your Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Contrary to reports, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a gentle dog who is good with people but tends to be hesitant around other dogs. The Staffy, as it is affectionately known, benefits from lots of exercise and discipline from a strong leader. To ensure your Staffordshire Bull 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.
The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a healthy breed, but genetic health problems do appear regularly. These include:
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.
