4 in 10 Dog Owners Admit Vet Fees Worry Them

A new study has revealed that nearly half (44%) of dog owners admit that they would struggle to afford vet bills out of their own savings, causing worry and stress.

The number is even higher for cats, where 62% are not covered compared to 47% for dogs. This equates to around 4 million uninsured dogs and 6 million uninsured cats living in the UK.

In spite of the widespread reluctance to insure their furry friends, comparethemarket.com discovered that pet owners who have insured their dogs and cats are paying different amounts, depending on where they live and in some cases, London, for example, pet owners pay a higher monthly premium – which could be why 68% are without pet insurance.
