Are female cats and dogs cheaper to ensure?

Asked a year ago

Hey there. I'm wondering if female cats and dogs are cheaper to ensure than their male counterparts? I'm asking as I'm wanting to adopt a pet - but I've just started my career and moved into my own home and I'd like to have a pet that won't cost me too much as I become more financially stable.

Some pet insurance plans charge slightly less for females. This is because male dogs are more likely to experience certain issues (like urinary obstructions) that are expensive to treat. Most insurances don’t charge based on gender, though, and only look at a dog’s age and size to decide on a premium.
