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!

The Louisiana Catahoula leopard dog is one of the few true American breeds. Their distant heritage is somewhat vague, but they are believed to have been developed in Louisiana and are named after the Catahoula parish area. Originally used as herding and hunting dogs, Catahoulas were bred for their working ability and are well adapted for life in the hot and wet Louisiana swamps. Their popularity grew in the 20th century, and they are now one of the most popular dogs in the southern states. They were named the state dog for Lousiana in 1979. They thrive as a member of a pack and need plenty of space to burn off their excess energy.

Catahoula Leopard Dog Health: Do they Need an Insurance Plan?

Louisiana Catahoula leopard dogs are very healthy dogs, their heritage as working dogs meant that there was a very low tolerance for health weaknesses. Owners should however be aware that Catahoulas are at risk for developing hip dysplasia, a joint condition requiring expensive treatment that may include surgery. Many insurance plans will help towards the treatment costs ensuring your Catahoula gets the help they need without the hefty price tag.

Other Insurance Considerations:

• Catahoulas are extraordinarily active and love to explore putting them at risk of injury.

• Certain genetic lines are predisposed to deafness.

• They are prone to vision problems.
