Very good question reader. It really depends on whether your dog has
already had any major health issues. All pet insurance companies exclude
pre-existing conditions. This means that if you switch pet insurance
companies AND you’re dog has already been diagnosed with something like
hip dysplasia, then the new pet insurance company will not cover hip
dysplasia. I would say, as a general rule, if your dog is healthy and
hasn’t been diagnosed with any chronic condition that will require
ongoing treatment then, yes, it’s probably worth it to compare pet
insurance rates and maybe switch. If, on the other hand, your dog is
currently being treated for, has been diagnosed with, or may have a
recurring episode of any medical condition then the safest thing might
be to stay with your current insurance company and just absorb the
higher rate.

I hope this helps and best of luck to you.
