"We all know how much technology costs to install in hospitals, but very similar equipment is used in the treatment of pets. Vets have to invest, but they also have to cover the cost of that technology investment - so the cost of treatment is going to start to rise.
"If a human goes to hospital with a broken bone, it’s treated for free in most cases. If a cat or dog needs to have a leg pinned, it’s often a far more complex operation involving just as much technology. Treating a cat with a broken leg can cost anything up to - or even beyond - £2,500; generally the older the cat, the costlier it is because bones get more brittle with age. We have seen claims for up to £6,000 for treatment following injuries sustained in road traffic accidents, where cats have benefited from treatment making previously unsurvivable injuries survivable thanks to modern technology and techniques.
"Cat and dog insurance has never been more important to pet owners."
