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!

Black Labrador Retriever

Labrador Retrievers are the most popular purebred dog in the United States, with Black Labradors ranking as the most common color. The now extinct St John’s Water Dog was used by English nobility to develop the Labrador breed in the 1700s for use as a hunting and retrieving companion. These St John’s Water Dogs were refined into the Labrador we know today through selective breeding to promote their hardworking and loyal nature. The first Labrador Retriever was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1917. The Labrador’s easy-going nature and trainability make them an excellent family pet.

Black Labrador Retriever Health: Do they Need an Insurance Plan?

Labrador Retrievers are prone to some hereditary health complications as well as some other serious conditions. Labradors are renowned for their appetite for both edible and inedible items. Labradors are highly food driven and will eat anything that they find within reach, meaning it can be difficult to keep on top of their diet. Obesity can create and exacerbate many problems including arthritis and diabetes. Not only will these conditions cause your pet to suffer, they will require ongoing and expensive vet care. Labradors are also one of the worst offenders when it comes to eating inedible items such as bones and rocks; if this happens they may need emergency surgery to remove the objects. Emergency care is expensive, but insurance can help you with the costs for this and any other health issues your pet may develop.

Other Insurance considerations:

• They are considered high risk for cancer, which will require surgery and long term care.

• They are renowned for eating objects that need to be removed surgically.

• They are prone to hereditary conditions such as arthritis.
