What if your pet has a pre existing condition?

If your pet has a pre existing condition or accident and you are concerned about the high cost of potential vet bills, you may have considered pet insurance as an option. Unfortunately, there are no pet insurance policies for pets with pre existing conditions. So if you pet recently had an accident or was diagnosed with an illness, then you won’t be able to qualify for pet insurance. 

Fortunately, there is a program available that offers discounted vet medical care, which can make caring for an unwell pet more affordable. 

This particular program is not pet insurance so there are no exclusions, no forms to fill out and no deductibles to meet before your coverage kicks in. This also means you won’t be denied any claim for any reason. 

Whether your pet has a pre-existing condition like allergies or periodontal disease, a hereditary condition like hip dysplasia or diabetes, or is a type of pet that wouldn’t traditionally be covered by pet insurance, like rabbits or birds, you can save on their veterinary care. 

The only catch with this program is you must visit a participating vet in order to receive the discounts. 

If you have a pet with a pre existing condition, this program may be a good option for you because they are not a pet insurance company. Rather, it is a veterinary discount plan that offers you discounts on vet care for your pets, including pre existing conditions. The program is designed to be simple, efficient and all-inclusive of any and every pet, regardless of age, existing health conditions, or breed. You will not be asked to submit past vet records, prove that your pet is healthy or jump through hoops to get your pet enrolled. 

This program covers the following:

  1. Wellness visits
  2. Sick visits
  3. Emergency care and hospitalization
  4. Surgical procedures
  5. Spays and neuters
  6. Routine care and vaccines
  7. Dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays
  8. Allergy treatments
  9. Diabetes management
  10. Cancer care
  11. And much more

While this program does not reimburse you like pet insurance would, it is a practical way to reduce the cost of your veterinary medical bills and you receive the discounts from participating vets at the time of service, saving you money instantly. This program makes veterinary care a bit more affordable so you can ensure that your pet always gets the care he needs.
