So do they still give you free flea & worming stuff if you're insuring a rat?

On a more serious note...
It would depend on how much you go to the vet, and how much your vet charges.

If your monthly cost is the same amount as a rabbit, then you'd be paying £51.36 yearly... So that's probably the same amount as two visits. Then, if your rat gets sick more often, 20% off would be very useful. Hopefully it'd cover medications, too.

The 10% off food would be useful only if you could use it on lab blocks.

Confusing!
I got insurance for illness, accident ect with a £45 exess so I wouldent need to isure them again.
Would a rat ever needs vaccinations?
Is neutering for male and female?
Its between £7.95 and £11.95 for a 10min consultation. I think the interest free credit on big bills would be handy.
Ive emailed them some questions..
thanks 2manyrats

There are no vaccinations for a rat.

Neutering if you want to get technical just means removing the reproductive organs -- it can be for a male and female. However most people refer to 'neutering' as for a male instead of properly saying castration. Spaying a rat is the female neuter.

Males can be neutered/castrated to remove aggression issues, or so that they can be housed with females.

Females can be spayed to reduce the chance of mammary tumors, or so that they can be housed with males.
