About this group
Independent-minded and fond of clowning around, Frenchies are a fashionable choice of dog for celebrities and everyday pet owners alike.
Why buy pet insurance for your French Bulldog?
There are a couple reasons why pet insurance for French Bulldogs can be expensive. First, Frenchies are prone to health problems (including breathing difficulties suffered by short-muzzled dogs), which may require costly vet treatment.
And although they usually have very gentle and affectionate temperaments, French Bulldogs are easily over-excited. This can lead to accidents that result in trips to the vet or potential legal claims.

Top questions answered by us
Why French Bulldog Insurance?
Data released by The Kennel Club recently on the UK's Top Dog Breeds confirmed what anyone who has been for a weekend walk on London Fields this year already knows - Frenchies are bang on-trend. But while everyone seems to know what great dogs French Bulldogs are, not everyone is aware that insuring them can be expensive. We wanted to raise awareness of this, and help French Bulldog owners use their collective buying power to get a better deal on French Bulldog pet insurance.
What are the most common French Bulldog health problems?
French Bulldogs are short-muzzled (or, in technical language, brachycephalic) dogs, and as a result they are prone to various breathing difficulties, including stenotic nares (narrow nostrils). These can, in turn, lead to complications such as heat exhaustion or fainting during exercise. The painful Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD) is also relatively common in French Bulldogs. The French Bulldog Club of England is a good source of more detailed information.

Is there a policy that covers up to what you have paid - lots say they do but then have a maximum benefit disclaimer which is a lot less than purchase price
Renewing my policy for my FrenchieView all 2 answers
Hello there, I have to renew my policy for my 6 yo frenchie, my current insurer HelpUCover by Pinnacle has raised the monthly payments by 140% (and without much warning)! Wondering if you might have suggestions for mature dog friendly insurance companies? Many thanks, Mariano
Hi there Mariano, have you tried getting a quote through our group above? We have negotiated a 20% discount for our members with More Than! Hope it helps. Kind regards, Heidi

Hi I've put my information in but you are wanting to charge me £48 a month for your best cover yet others are getting quoted £16.77 a month what's all that about ?
Hi Becki, thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately Frenchies are one of the most expensive breeds to insure and many things can impact the cost, it is likely the people getting quoted £16.77 are opting for a lower level of cover, and they may have a more favourable postcode in terms of insurance costs, for example people living in the South East tend to have to pay more as the veterinary fees are higher in this area. I am really sorry the quote was disappointing. Kind regards, Heidi

HI Over on the French Bulldogs Uk page on Facebook people have been discussing insurance companies and a lot have gone through you. They all say they get £12,000 of cover per year for their French Bulldogs for £28 per month yet when I just did a quote it came back at £44.35 per month for our new puppy, why so different??
Hi Richard, it is difficult to say without knowing the exact circumstances. It could be that you paid more than others for your pup, and you may live in a high priced location for pet insurance (it does differ across postcodes) If you would like me to investigate a bit more, you can drop an email with all the details you put into the site to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see if we can get to the bottom of this for you! Kind regards, Heidi

hi there, when we checked the more than website price directly, its shows as only 10% more than whats offered by clicking through bought by many, so only a 10% discount rather than 20% (we checked directly on a different device so no issues with cookies). can you help?
Hi Scott, thanks for your message. Our 20% discount includes the 10% online More Than discount. Essentially our discount is 20% less than if you were to approach More Than directly over the phone. It is 10% cheaper than approaching More Than directly online! I hope that clears things up for you. Kind regards, Heidi

when I click through its for three frenchies but it says I have a 19% discount - and there's no mention in the promo code section...?
Hi there Sarah Thanks for getting in touch. The additional discount is automatically included when you go via our website. More Than does not show the Bought By Many discount on their website unfortunately. But it will have been included, if you want to check, you can go to More Than directly to obtain a quote (please delete your cookies before and after as the website will remember you and not show the correct price) and this will show you the difference in prices! I hope that helps and I am very sorry for the confusion. Kind regards Heidi
