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!

Labrador Retriever

Labrador retrievers are one of the most popular pets in the United States. Loved for their easy-going temperament and hard-working nature; labs make excellent family pets and are often used as service dogs due to their high level of trainability. Labradors are descended from the now extinct Saint John’s water dog; a breed regarded for its retrieving abilities. Beginning in the 1700s, Saint John’s water dogs were imported by wealthy Englishmen to meet the need for sporting dogs. These dogs were eventually refined into the labrador retriever we know today. The first labrador was registered with the American Kennel Club in 1917. The labrador retriever is a low maintenance dog perfect for active families and individuals.

Labrador Retriever Health: Do they Need a Pet Insurance Plan?

Like many pedigree breeds, labrador retrievers are prone to some hereditary health complications as well as some other serious conditions. Labradors are renowned for their appetite and their inability to make healthy eating decisions. 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 lead to and aggravate many conditions including arthritis and diabetes. Not only will these conditions cause your pet suffering but they 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, your lab may need emergency surgery to remove the objects. Emergency care is expensive, but insurance can help you with the costs for this and any ongoing treatment should your pet develop long term conditions.

Other Insurance Considerations:

• They are considered high risk for cancer, which can 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.
