Yorkshire Terrier pet insurance
Find out everything you need to know about insuring your Yorkshire Terrier.
When choosing a pet insurance plan for your little Yorkshire Terrier, it can sometimes be a daunting task. You need to consider which policy is best for your pup’s health requirements, as well as the health of your wallet. Not every policy will suit every breed due to differences in medical requirements, and whilst it isn’t fun to think of all the illnesses your pup could experience, it can be essential in picking the right policy.
So, in order to avoid shedding out your hard-earned cash, check out our guide to finding the best insurance for your Yorkshire Terrier.
What is the best type of insurance for Yorkshire Terrier’s?
You may wish to consider a lifetime policy for your Yorkshire Terrier. As a breed, they are prone to a number of different health problems, including cushing’s disease, an incurable illness. Should your Yorkshire Terrier become ill with this disease it is likely that treatment will be ongoing, and a lifetime policy, whilst more expensive, restarts financial limits for each condition every year with renewal.
Additionally, you could also consider a maximum benefit policy. It is often a more affordable option, and you are able to claim more than once for a condition. However, once the financial limit is reached for each condition, it does not restart with renewal and you will have to pay for the rest of the treatment yourself.

Despite being one of the feistiest dogs around, Yorkshire Terriers are not immune to getting sick and are susceptible to a number of illnesses. They are common for their breed, and therefore should be considered when deciding on your insurance plan. Several of these health problems could re-occur regularly, or even become ongoing.
Common illnesses for Yorkshire Terriers include:
- Cushing’s disease
- Vomiting and diarrhoea
Average treatments cost
When deciding on a pet insurance plan, it is useful to be aware of the average cost of treatments for the common health problems your Yorkshire Terrier might experience. If you are deciding between two policies, such as a maximum benefit or a lifetime policy, these figures may swing your vote as they are the potential costs you could face if you go with the wrong policy.
