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!
