I’ve collated a list of insurance companies which offer pet insurance for ferrets that I could find around the world. Unfortunately there aren’t many pet insurance companies which want to help ferrets 🙁
If you’re looking to insure your ferret/s, I’d suggest you check to make sure there aren’t any exclusion clauses in the policy which could make it impossible for you to claim for treatment for certain diseases which our ferrets are prone to getting, like adrenal gland disease or insulinoma.
Review of Nationwide Pet Insurance by ferret owners : The plan is absolutely awful. I have two ferrets, and my boyfriend and I were so happy to finally find a pet insurance that caters to exotic pets. We were greatly disappointed when the policy finally arrived. It didn’t cover ANYTHING close to the normal costs of owning a pet. This policy was nothing but a scam to take $114 to start the plan plus an extra $20 per month to continue the plan (the numbers are also per pet by the way) so they could only be protected from extreme circumstances like broken limbs from car accidents. Ferrets are not like dogs and cats, therefore they are not out and about like there fellow furry friends. They are not as highly active where they may in fact injure themselves to the point where they might actually break their own legs, necks, etc. This policy only covered rare, unlucky draw situations and it wasn’t worth our money. My babies are 2 years and 6 months old so they have a long time before any of their expected ferret diseases comes to haunt them, which of course, the policy does not cover.
Bottom line: If you are a ferret owner, you are better off without this plan. It’s not worth your time.

«Nationwide is supposedly covering pre-existing hereditary and common illness did ferrets. 30 a month, 25p deductable, 90% reimbursement, and exams, hospitalizations, medications etc»

… Nationwide’s Avian & Exotic Pet Plan covers ferrets (along with many other exotic animals like birds), and is one of the few pet insurance companies to do so …
