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!

Rottweiler

The Rottweiler dates back to the Roman times; it was a herding dog used to drive livestock and provide protection. These herding dogs became especially popular around the town of Rottweil and eventually took on the name of Rottweiler. The breed’s adaptability has led them to take on many addition roles including, draft dog, police dog, and guard dog. The first Rottweiler was registered with the American Kennel Club in 1936, and their popularity has grown ever since. They consistently rank as one of the most popular dogs in the United States.

Rottweiler Health: Do they Need a Pet Insurance Plan?

Rottweilers, for their size, are considered a healthy breed. However, current and potential owners should be aware of some health conditions frequently reported in the breed. One of which is a joint condition known as hip dysplasia, where the hip joints no longer function correctly. This condition causes pain and lameness in dogs and requires medical intervention; this may include surgery depending on the severity. Any surgery, especially in dogs of this size, is expensive. The right insurance will help you cover the majority of the costs and get the best possible treatment for your pet.

Other Insurance Considerations:

• Rottweilers are prone to heart problems.

• They are particularly at risk of developing Addison’s disease and in turn Cushings syndrome, both require lifelong treatment.

• Eye problems are common in Rottweilers.
