Extra Benefits Included in Coverage If you've been comparing pet insurance companies, you'll be happy to know the following are covered under our accident and illness plans.
Exam feesWhen your pet is seen by a licensed veterinarian anywhere in the world for covered accidents and illnesses.
Ongoing/chronic conditionsWhen your policy renews, we don’t consider previously covered conditions to be pre-existing. This means your pet will still be covered up to your plan’s maximum per incident benefit, even if treatment spans many months or years.
Older petsWe have no upper age limits for pets and we don’t reduce or cancel coverage based on your pet’s age.
Cruciate injuries in both legsWe consider each cruciate injury as a separate incident, as long as they don't occur and aren't treated at the same time. This means that if your pet injures his left cruciate ligament, we won’t consider later injury of the right ligament to be pre-existing as long as it occurs after the cruciate coverage waiting period.
Hunting or service accidentsAccidents that happen while hunting or in the line of service are covered.
Full coverage even when not spayed/neuteredProstate problems, hormonal skin conditions, perianal tumors, mammary tumors, uterine and ovarian conditions, as well as injury due to motor vehicle or aggressive behavior whether or not your pet is spayed or neutered
Behavioral conditionsWe cover behavioral consults with, and/or medication prescribed by, a licensed veterinarian.
