Burmese Pet Insurance

A medium-sized, very muscular cat who feels considerably heavier than they appear. The Burmese is a cat which loves to look at the world around them. Their favourite place may often turn out to be a window where they can observe the world outside. Comfortable with other Burmese, they may not get along as well with other breeds but do love a daily petting session from their human owners. Their short coats have a low tendency to shed, and their life expectancy is 8-12 yrs.

Prone illnesses include*


A clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye, leading to vision difficulties and sometimes blindness.


Abnormally high levels of nitrogen-containing compounds in the blood. Largely related to insufficient or dysfunctional filtering of blood by the kidneys and can lead to uraemia and acute kidney injury if not controlled.

Ocular dermoids

Are usually characterised by the growth of hair on or near the cornea, or in the conjunctiva, the white of the eye.
