We ran a number of quotes through our partners Confused.com, to give you an indication of costs. Our results estimated that, on average, you could insure your Dachshund with a lifetime insurance policy for £43 a month, or an annual payment of £515. To run these quotes, we used the following pet information:
The cheapest quote we found was the Super policy from Animal Friends, which came in at £11.76 per month, or £141.12 annually. The most expensive was Asda Money with their Lifetime 10,000 policy – £89.85 per month, or £1076.99 annually.
Remember that cheapest doesn’t mean best and you might miss out on important cover if you simply go for the cheapest option. Make sure to shop around and compare policies to find the one that works best for your short legged darling.
There are four main types of pet insurance policies you should be familiar with.
Before deciding on an insurance policy, it is essential to be aware of the common illnesses associated with your dog’s breed. For your dachshund, there are a number of ailments that might affect your dog as it ages. It’s a good idea to take these health conditions into consideration when selecting your insurance policy.
It’s also useful to be aware of the average cost of treatment for common illnesses associated with dachshunds. This information will help you in deciding which type of pet insurance policy to take out, as well as ensure that your policy limit is the right one for your dachshund’s health requirements.
Below is a list of the average treatment costs for common dachshund illnesses:
|Health Problem||Average treatment cost|
|Intervertebral disc disease||£650|
|Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (Dry-eye)||£350|
|Progressive retinal atrophy||£350|
While you might adore the short legs and long body of your sausage dog, dachshunds can suffer from health problems as a result of their shape. Being aware of the most common ailments your pet might develop will help you decide on the most appropriate insurance policy.
Dog insurance doesn’t need to leave a sting in your tail as long as you remember to shop around and compare deals. Take a look at our pet insurance provider reviews and our guides on other dog breeds.
