Pet Insurance For Cats
Whether you’ve had a faithful cat companion for many years, or you’ve just brightened your life with a new kitten, you cat will have health issues and need preventative wellness care.
Kitten Insurance Needs
Kittens need special care from us, but most of their medical problems occur when they are adults. Cats are prone to accidents and injuries and susceptible to foreign body ingestion crises.
Here are some typical kitten veterinary needs that pet insurance usually covers:
- * Spaying/Neutering
- Emergency Removal of Ingested Foreign Bodies
- Antidotes for Poinsoning
Adult Cat Insurance Needs
If you already have a companion roaming around your house, and it’s not just the little kitten anymore, it might need insurance coverage for more routine care and, of course, accidents. For cats, this can include the following:
- * Routine Dental
- Ear Infections
- Bladder Infections
Mature Cat Insurance Needs
If you want to make sure your loved one can live a long and healthy life, pet insurance for adult cats can be an important factor. Many of the conditions cats are vulnerable to can become exceedingly expensive. You need to make sure your cat has right treatment no matter what it has, no matter what its age. The following are commonly covered conditions and illnesses that pet insurance usually covers for cats.
- Kidney Disease
- Heart disease
Conditions your cat insurance might not cover
A pre-existing condition is an injury or illness that your pet may have had or gotten before the date the policy coverage began. Some pre-existing conditions are temporary and may be covered, depending on whether or not this condition has been cured for some time before the policy starts. Some pre-existing conditions are permanent and will not be covered. Check with your vet! This can be a very heartbreaking situation if you get coverage only to find out later the insurance won’t help.
Congenital disorders or developmental defects are pre-existing conditions by definition. Congenital disorders are abnormalities that are present at birth and can cause illness or disease. Check with your vet if you haven’t already to make sure your cat or kitten does not have a serious congenital disorder that would make it uninsurable. .
Hereditary disorders are abnormalities genetically transmitted from parent to offspring and may cause illness or disease. There are certain breed-specific hereditary conditions that are not covered, so be sure to check with your vet before buying a policy
