Be specific when it comes to finding the pets best insurance. Different breeds of rabbits are prone to specific types of illnesses and ailments. It is important for the owner to know the specific breed of their pet to determine what type of ailments it is prone to.

Pay attention to the company’s requirements and terms. Insurance companies often require that your pet be within a certain age range. For some companies, rabbits that are over a certain age are more prone to getting sick, increasing the likelihood of paying for claims. Other companies may cover older rabbits as long as the pet has been insured prior to reaching the age limit. Another consideration is the amount itself. Insurance companies may only pay if the cost is within a certain range. Any amount beyond this range will be shouldered by the owner.

Equal attention must be given to what is not included in the coverage. Most veterinary pet insurance policies do not cover routine services such treatment for fleas, having the pet vaccinated or neutered. In such cases, owners will have to bear the full cost of such services.

Although breeds are prone to develop certain conditions, companies normally cover a maximum number of claims for a specific condition or over a certain time period. If your pet gets sick often, the insurance policy may not cover all treatments.

If you have multiple pets, companies such as RSPCA pet insurance will offer discounts if both are insured under the same company.
