Pet Insurance for Existing Conditions?

1321 Views 10 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Quinsation
A friend has a dog that will need $400 of dental work.

Are there any insurances that are cost effective and will cover teeth extractions? I imagine these would have to be covered under existing conditions?

Thanks! Does that include Banfield plans, that they would exclude pre-existing conditions?
Generally speaking, you have to have bought insurance before the problem happens for anything to be covered. Insurance companies would lose money if you could just buy it when there's a problem and have them pay for the procedure. In this case, your friend is better off looking into something like Care Credit, which will is a credit program specifically for medical issues and has a veterinary financing option. This will give them time to pay off the cost of the procedure, rather than having to pay a bulk sum all at once.
She just checked PetAssure and they cover preexisting conditions. For all 3 of her pups, it is$149 year.
Sounds too good to be true? Any experience with PetAssure?
