Insured and uninsured pet owners willing to pay for treatment Netherlands 2018

In 2018, people who are willing to pay more for their pet’s treatment are more often insured compared to pet owners that are not willing to pay that much. Uninsured pet owners were less likely to pay "as much as necessary" for their pets veterinary treatment and were more likely to have a cap to the medical costs. Note, however, that less respondents had a pet insurance. This is because pet insurance had a market share of around 4 percent in the Netherlands, according to the source.
