Rabbit insurance is essential for ensuring you and your pet are protected in case something bad happens. But there are a few things to take into consideration   before taking out a policy. These include:

  • Age
    How old is your rabbit? Young bunnies can sometimes get cheaper insurance than older rabbits. 
  • Breed
    Is your rabbit a rare breed? This may affect your insurance quote.
  • Pre-existing medical conditions
    If your rabbit has any known conditions prior to taking out insurance, this might affect the cover you can get. 
  • Multiple pets
    If you have multiple rabbits or cats and dogs, you could them covered under the same plan and save money.

Frequently asked questions

When can you get pet insurance for a rabbit?

You can get bunny insurance for your baby rabbit when they turn eight weeks old – right up until their fifth birthday. They’ll then be covered for the rest of their life, as long as you keep renewing your policy every year without a break.

How much does pet rabbit insurance cost?

There are lots of different factors that play a part in the price of pet insurance for rabbits. It can depend on the:

  • Age and breed of your rabbit
  • Where you live in the country
  • Level of cover too and what’s included

It’s worth remembering that paying more for cover can provide a greater number of benefits. For example, cheap rabbit insurance may not give you all the cover you need and could cost more in the long run.

Is there anything you don’t cover?

There are some things that aren’t covered with our pet rabbit insurance, including pre-existing conditions, vaccinations and the cost of routine and preventative treatments.

Double check your policy document for full details on what isn’t included in our cover.

Is it worth getting insurance for rabbits?

This has to be your decision, but it’s definitely something worth considering if you’re a rabbit owner.

Vet bills can soon spiral if they’re not partly or fully covered by a rabbit insurance policy.

If your rabbit runs into health issues during its lifetime, then a pet policy can help ensure you’re not footing the full bill – taking away that financial strain.

How long does a pet rabbit live?

Rabbits generally live for five to eight years, but they may live as long as twelve years.
