Dog Health Problems

There is nothing worse than when your dog gets sick. It’s bad enough when they injure their paw or even if they don’t eat for a day.

It would be even worse if you didn’t have the money to cover the vet bill when your dog does get sick.

And with one serious illness, the vet bills can really add up.

If your dog has diabetes or cancer, not only can the vet bills be upwards of $10,000 but the treatment will need to be continued throughout your dog’s life.

Pet insurance can save you anywhere from 70% to 90% of your vet bill which can be extremely helpful.

A good pet insurance policy will not only cover treatment of the disease but also the testing and diagnosis that goes with it.

Make sure you enroll in policy while your dog is still a puppy and before any of these conditions become pre-existing.

Because no pet insurance provider will cover any pre-existing conditions.   In fact, here’s how pet insurance works.

We’ve compiled a list of the most common dog health conditions below, along with the average cost of treatment for each!

As always, if you suspect your dog or puppy is suffering from any of these health issues, consult with your veterinarian for testing, diagnosis and the best treatment options for your pet.

And while puppies are usually very healthy, there are also many conditions that can affect them early in their life.  Another reason to get started with pet insurance while your dog is young!

The older your pet is, the more likely they are to have health problems.

If you haven’t enrolled in a pet insurance policy yet, it’s better to do so now before your dog gets sick or even in an accident.
