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!

Boxer Dog

Boxer dogs originated in Germany, a member of the molosser class of dogs, they are descended from the cross breeding of the now extinct bullenbeiser and English bulldogs. The breed was standardized though heavy inbreeding in the late 19th century and the first boxers found their way to the United States around the same time. The boxer breed was officially recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1904. With their genetics making them excellent working and hunting dogs, as well as wonderful companions, the boxer soon rose in popularity in the United States and they are now one of the most popular breeds in the country. Boxers are intelligent and athletic, they require consistent training and exercise to become happy family pets.

Boxer Health: Do they Need an Insurance Plan?

Heavy inbreeding to create a standardized breed has created the usual hereditary problems seen in other purebred dogs. The sudden popularity of the breed created a rise in breeders that were less selective about which dogs were bred from. The result has been an increase in unhealthy dogs. Boxers are considered very high risk for developing cancer, a disease that will require expensive long-term treatment to maintain your pet’s quality of life. They are also very susceptible to cardio problems such as boxer cardiomyopathy, a genetic heart problem that is treated with drugs for the duration of your pet’s life. Boxer related health problems can cost thousands of dollars, both in emergency treatment and long term maintenance, choosing the right insurance plan can help with these costs immensely.

Other Insurance Considerations:

• They are a brachycephalic breed, meaning that they have short muzzles, and are prone to respiratory issues.

• They are high risk to develop bloat, a condition that requires expensive emergency treatment.

• These active dogs are considered high risk for hip dysplasia, which can be incredibly expensive to treat.
