Q. How much is't to get health insurance on kitten/cat

Answered By

A. This question is very difficult to answer, as this depends on the insurance companies in your area and the type of coverage you wish to have, and the deductible you select, how old your pet is, does he have any pre-existing conditions. Some cover only more major medical issues, while some can even cover more routine stuff. Most pet insurance companies provide free online quotes; just enter your information and your pets and it will calculate a quote for you. For my area (Canada) basic coverage runs (very rough estimate for a normal/young/healthy cat) $20-100/month
