Pet Insurance for Welsh Terriers

K9 Pet Insurance offers comprehensive pet insurance for your Welsh Terrier. The Welsh Terrier is one of the oldest dog breeds in the UK and was originally bred for hunting. Today, the Welsh Terrier is more of a show dog than a hunting dog. The breed has an excitable personality with a high intelligence which makes training these dogs easy but very important. To ensure your Welsh 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.

Common Medical Conditions for Welsh Terriers

The Welsh Terrier is a resilient dog that has a long lifespan and generally healthy outlook. There are a few health problems to look out for including:

  • glaucoma
  • lens luxation
  • hip dysplasia
  • atopy
  • keratoconjunctivitis sicca or ‘dry eye'

Typical Claims costs for Welsh Terriers

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.
