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!

Collie Dog

Collies were originally bred in Scotland; their intelligent and hardworking nature made them excellent herding dog. Collies love having a ‘job’ to do and appreciate praise and attention, for this reason Collies make excellent show dogs. Perhaps the most famous Collie dog is “Lassie”, the star of the TV show and various movies. This early TV exposure has made the Collie one of the most recognizable and popular dog breeds today. In fact, Lassie was the first dog to be insured in the United States. Collies make loyal family pets and great companions. However, their history as a working dog means they need plenty of exercise and stimulation. They thrive best on a farm or large property, with owners who will give them plenty of love and attention.

Collie Health: Do they Need an Insurance Plan?

Collies are beautiful dogs who love and thrive on attention. Unfortunately, their health is one of these areas that might require some extra attention. Collies suffer from several diseases and conditions that are specific to the breed and may require specialist care. For example, Collies suffer from breed-specific illnesses such as Collie Nose and Collie Eye Anomaly. Collie Nose is also known as Canine Discoid Lupus; it’s a condition where sores develop around the nose and it may need ongoing treatment depending on the severity of the case. Collie health care can be expensive, but pet insurance can help to cover the cost of some of the most common Collie health conditions. A comprehensive pet insurance plan will help cover specific Collie health needs.

Other Insurance Considerations:

• Breeding has made Collies sensitive to certain medications, which means care needs to be taken when choosing a vet and health insurance for Collies. Vet care can be expensive as Collies require specialist medications.

• Collies have been bred as herding dogs, which means they have an instinct to chase moving objects including cars. For this reason, Collies are highly prone to accidents.

• Collies can suffer from behavioral issues stemming from their high intelligence. They may require behavioral therapy or additional training both as puppies and as older dogs.
