Vet Fees for Cats

Owning a cat can be rewarding but also expensive if they fall ill. Whilst we hope nothing will happen to our pets, do you know how much it could cost if it does?

According to the Association of British Insurers the average pet insurance claim in 2018 was £793.

However, it’s important to consider that vet fees can differ from practice to practice and vary due to your location, the age of your pet and the severity of the condition.
