What is covered?
Basically, almost every type of injury or illness is eligible for coverage, so long as it is not considered pre-existing. We do not exclude any conditions or breed-specific ailments. We even cover hereditary and congenital conditions, provided signs were not evident before your policy coverage date.
For eligible conditions, coverage includes:
- Diagnostic tests
- Hospital stays
- Veterinary supplements
- Prosthetic devices
Coverage is applicable to new injuries or illnesses that occur after waiting periods pass. Waiting periods are 5 days for injuries and 30 days for illnesses.
Which veterinarian should you visit?
You can visit any veterinarian throughout the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico, including emergency hospitals and specialty veterinarians. Coverage applies just the same!
What is not covered?
- Exam fees
- Any applicable taxes
- Wellness and preventive care (including flea treatments, dental cleanings, and vaccinations)
- Pre-existing conditions - If your pet shows signs or symptoms of a condition prior to full policy coverage, then it is considered pre-existing and not eligible for coverage.
We encourage you to read through your dog insurance policy (or check out our sample policy) to make sure that you understand what is and isn't covered.
