Looking at insuring the buns but there are so many around i don't know which is more competitive. I want one that doesn't put exclusions in, for example if one bun hurts their leg then from that point onwards anything to do with that leg, even if unrelated is excluded.

Any recommendations?

i think there are a few exotics insurers out there, i went with petplan cus they was good when i had to claim for my cat. petplan cover for life and each condition is also covered continuously. ive heard people say they dont cover teeth issues but from reading the small print they should cover any emergancy dental care as long as the rabbit had a proper teeth check in the 6 month period before that time. and same as with dogs and cats if they arent vaccinated they wont be covered for issues arising from VHD or Myxi.

Petplan, Pet Protect, PDSA, PHA Pet (why do they all begin with P??) Helpucover are some of the ones I have found on google.

Can you apply for Petplan insurance online?

I'd like to insure Hiro and Kiki while they're still young and healthy

I insure with petplan because from what I read they are the only insurer to offer full dental cover. Although they do require a regular dental checkup. Other insurers seems to exclude more things than petplan.

You just have to read the conditions of the insurance and see which one suits you best.

I have four and I get multi - pet discount. You're right - it doesn't feel like it's worth the money...until something happens. On of mine got stasis and had to stay at the vet hospital for two days on drips and all sorts. It cost 230. My uther bunny has had to have two lots of dentals in the last year, 150 go a time. I know it seems like a lot of money but if things start happening and you have to pay out of your own pocket, you'll regret not doing it.

I pay 8 a bun including the multi-pet discount with PetPlan. It's DEFINITELY worth it!!

I have just tried to insure my two little babies and was quoted 8.70, however this is only for one rabbit although i asked for a quite for two. Be careful and double check that it is defo for two it says you have to ring for a quote for more than one rabbit. It also quotes the same price if you do a quote for 1 or 4 rabbits. I would double check.

The price can vary greatly. It depends on what area you are in, as some are more myxi and VHD prone :)

With some insurers it may get your a slightly lower price but I don't think it matters with petplan.
