Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Teeth Extraction

In the normal development process for puppies, their baby teeth exfoliate as the adult teeth erupt. Some dogs may have complications with their teeth and Maui the 6-month-old Wheaten Terrier is an example.

She had to have surgery to extract her deciduous teeth and move interfering teeth. While routine dental care is not covered under our policy, complications such as this and broken teeth are covered, fortunately for Maui and her owners! Here is some more information about puppy teeth extraction and exfoliation.

Exam fees: -$129.00
Unrelated charges: -$9.50

    That’s very good to know! My doggie broke a piece of tooth and I am hoping no extraction will be needed but it’s comforting to know it might be covered!

    I hope I don’t have to use the insurance much but it’s reassuring to know it is there and will help with expenses when/ if the time comes !

    Very good to know. My yorkie has what I believe to be a baby tooth that didn’t come out and now it’s starting to bother her. She’s almost 2 and we’ve been insured for over a year with you. I’m taking her to the vet to see what the problem is. I’ll post what I find out firsthand about the coverage with her. I can’t imagine this would be considered routine.
