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!

Dogs similar to pugs were popular in China, it’s believed that the modern day pug was developed from these Chinese dogs that were imported to Europe in the 16th century. Pugs became increasingly popular in England and were the favored dog of Queen Victoria, who had many. Their appearance has changed over the years, and the pugs of today are shorter with flatter faces than their ancestors. Pugs were first seen in the United States in the 19th century and were officially registered with the American Kennel Club in 1885.

Pug Health: Do they Need a Pet Insurance Plan?

Pugs, like other brachycephalic breeds, are considered high risk for breathing problems. Their face shape has created a number of issues including poor temperature control and an inability to get enough oxygen. Although some conditions can’t be treated some can be helped with surgical procedures. The care costs involved can be very expensive. Pugs can also suffer from eye problems; their head shape leaves their eyes exposed to injury. Choosing the right insurance plan will greatly help with the cost of these problems should they arise.

Other Insurance Considerations:

• Pugs have one of the highest chances of developing hip dysplasia, a painful and expensive to treat condition.

• They are prone to skin problems including demodectic mange.

• They are one of the few breeds at risk of necrotizing meninggoencephalitis, a disease that is nearly always fatal.
