Any pre-existing conditions?

Pet insurance won't cover costs for any condition that your pet showed signs of before the start date of the policy. (Medical records or a vet exam might be required to establish your pet's health). But, pet insurance will cover new conditions and accidents. Also, all the pet insurance plans here will cover conditions that your pet might have been born with but haven't showed up yet. These are called hereditary or congenital conditions. So it's still important to get covered!

Bernese Mountain Dog

The Bernese mountain dog was developed in Switzerland. Also known as the Berner sennenhund, they are closely related to the other Swiss breeds of mountain dog—the entlebucher, appenzeller and the greater Swiss. The Bernese is a strong and powerful dog adapted to life in the Alps where it originated as a farm dog capable of droving, drafting and protection. The first Bernese mountain dogs were officially imported to the United States by a farmer from Kansas in 1926. They were first accepted as a breed by the American Kennel Club in 1937 and progressively became more popular over the following years. Bernese mountain dogs are gentle giants who excel in agility and obedience training making them great family pets.

Bernese Mountain Dog Health: Do they Need an Insurance Plan?

The Bernese mountain dog is considered high risk for many health problems. The average age expectancy has dropped by a third over the last ten years. They have the highest cancer rate of any purebred breed, with over fifty percent of dogs dying of the disease. The cost of treating cancer is very expensive; choosing insurance that covers medical treatment is extremely important. Their size also makes them susceptible to skeletal problems including hip and elbow dysplasia, and arthritis. Even with their short life-span the costs of treating these problems can soon add up. Appropriate insurance can help make sure you can afford to give your dog the best treatment available.

Other Insurance considerations:

• They are considered one of the most unhealthy breeds of dog.

• Bernese mountain dogs are prone to bloat, which requires expensive emergency care.

• Their size can exacerbate the cost of treatment.
