Why should I insure my hamster?

Hamsters are undeniably cute and utterly adorable! With their soft fur, cute button eyes and energetic climbing, they offer hours of love and entertainment. Indeed every hamster has its own unique personality.

Sadly, if your hamster becomes ill it can be heartbreaking. Your cute furry friend is not only a hamster but a member of the family. Illness can be a guessing game, should or shouldn't you risk expensive vet fees?

But why should this be? Hamster insurance offers you choices - so that you can concentrate on what's best for your hamster when he becomes ill.
