Does Pet Insurance Cover Allergy Shots & Testing?

Allergies are known to cause more issues during specific times of the year, depending on each dog’s allergen sensitivities. Once a dog is diagnosed with allergies, they will likely experience them for the remainder of their life. This means you could face thousands of dollars in unexpected vet bills for allergies alone throughout your dog’s lifetime. Is that something you can afford? If not, a pet insurance policy bought prior to diagnosis may be able to ease the financial burden and help you focus your attention on your dog.

Does Pet Insurance Cover Surgery?

Are you wondering if you can get pet insurance for surgery? It all depends on the current state of your dog’s health. What does that mean? Pet insurance doesn’t cover pre-existing conditions. So, if your dog has already been diagnosed with an ailment and you know she needs surgery, then it will most likely be ineligible from coverage. However, there are still many other instances where getting pet insurance makes sense, especially if you are trying to minimize unmanageable vet bills in the future.
