It’s a common misconception that rabbits are easier and cheaper pets to look after. But they can fall ill or get injured just like any other animal. In fact – depending on the treatment – vet fees for rabbits can be more expensive than those for a larger pet. This is because smaller animals are tricky to operate on.

If you couldn’t afford vet care should your rabbit need it, then the right rabbit insurance policy could help out with this. Some policies only contribute to the cost of vet fees. This means you could end up paying more in premiums than your insurer pays out to cover the treatment.

Only you can decide whether it’s worth getting insurance for your rabbit. You’ll have to weigh up the cost of premiums against the amount of vet fees cover you’d get to see if it’s worth it.
