Health insurance for your guinea pig

For many years, health care for guinea pigs has lagged behind that for dogs, cats and rabbits, and whilst not everything that can be performed on these species, can be performed on guinea pigs, veterinary medicine has advanced in leaps and bounds over the last few years, so much more is possible nowadays. Not surprisingly, these advanced surgical and medical treatments are often expensive, so that a vet's bill for complicated surgery or a prolonged course of treatment may be several hundreds, or even thousands of pounds. Many pet owners worry that they will not be able to afford to pay for treatment if their guinea pig becomes sick or has a major accident.
