Corgis are an adorable breed with a lot of notable fans, the main one being the Queen. These royal dogs are a great addition to any family.

Whilst they are generally a healthy breed, there are a number of issues that could arise with their health due to their short legs and long spines. So, to avoid having to foot the bill on vet fees, check out our guide to everything you need to know about insuring your Corgi.

What is the best type of insurance for your Corgi?

Due to having a normal sized body but cute, tiny legs, Corgis are predominantly exposed to eye and spinal conditions. Some spinal issues can be life-long, whilst many of the other conditions may reoccur over your Corgi’s life.

For a more affordable type of insurance cover, you may wish to insure your Corgi with a maximum benefit policy. With this policy, you can claim more than once for the same condition, which is ideal for recurring illnesses, and there is no time limit on new conditions. However, it is important to be aware that there is a financial limit for each condition, making it important that you pick a policy with the right financial limit for your Corgi’s needs, and that you are prepared to fund any further treatments yourself.

If you want more extensive cover incase your Corgi does develop a spinal issue, then a lifetime insurance policy is a worthwhile investment. With this policy, the financial limit for each condition resets each year with renewal, limiting the likeliness that you will have to pay for any treatment yourself. However, this cover is usually the most expensive offered.
