We all know that owning a pet is an extremely big responsibility and can also cost a lot of money. With veterinary bills increasing with every trip, so are insurance policies for your pet!
This is especially true for dogs because they tend to get injured more frequently than cats and other smaller animals.
As a matter of fact, each insurance policy for your dog varies greatly solely on the breed. According to a report conducted by ValuePenguin, the following breeds of dogs are the most expensive dogs to insure.
The Irish Wolfhound is about 41% more expensive to insure than the average dog. This is because of their large joints and frequent gastric disorders. This is why Irish Wolfhounds may need to see vets more frequently or use more medication.
The Caucasian Ovcharka insurance premiums can run up to 47% higher than the average dog. These dogs range between 99 and 200 pounds, and are susceptible to common health problems.
The Bernese Mountain Dog originated from Switzerland and is about 58% more expensive to insure.
The English Bulldog tends to have more health problems regardless of the stigma of them being a violent breed. In fact, insuring an English Bulldog may cost the owner 60% more than other breeds.
The Great Dane according to ValuePenguin, is the most expensive dog to insure. It can cost 63% more to insure these massive dogs. They frequently suffer from heart and hip problems and because of the amount of medication needed for their great size, owning a Great Dane is quite expensive.
