Dogs or cats: who costs more at the vet?

Queensland dog owners take more trips to the vet each year than those with cats.

New data from RACQ Pet Insurance shows that dogs are more prone to needing veterinary assistance than cats.

RACQ’s Kirsty Clinton said RACQ Pet Insurance received more than 5100 claims worth approximately $1.5 million in the last two years.

“The majority of claims are for illness, which appears to be more common than injuries,” Ms Clinton said.

“We’ve also found dogs are more prone to needing assistance, accounting for almost 90 percent of claims lodged.”
