We ran these quotes using the following criteria:
The cheapest quote we found was the Super policy from Animal Friends, which came in at £22.62 per month, or £271.44 annually. The most expensive was Asda Money with their Lifetime 10,000 policy – £182.03 per month, or £2,183.26 annually.
There are four main types of pet insurance policies you should be familiar with.
Ultimately, it is up to you to decide which insurance policy is right for your dog. However, it should be noted that bulldogs are renowned for chronic respiratory issues and will likely require repeated medical treatment over the course of their lives. This means that accident only insurance is not likely to be the best choice when it comes to insuring your bulldog. Financial situation depending, you are better off choosing either a maximum benefit or lifetime insurance policy.
Owning a dog prone to regular medical treatment is expensive, and common and recurring illnesses are important to consider when selecting the right pet insurance plan. The right policy can limit the likelihood of having to shed out hundreds of pounds to cover the below treatment costs:

British bulldogs do unfortunately suffer from the highest rate of hip dysplasia of all dog breeds. As a result, your pet may have to deal with chronic pain or becoming lame. Other issues they are likely to face, due mainly to selective breeding, are respiratory difficulties.
This could mean more medical treatment for your pet and therefore higher insurance premiums.
