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!

Pet Health in California

The geographical conditions and outdoor lifestyle of California can affect your pet’s health. California’s warm and sunny climate not only puts animals at a higher risk of heat related problems, it also allows for more area specific health risks. California provides lots of great hiking, beach runs and other fun outdoor activities. This outdoor lifestyle, however, allows for more environmental health risks. For example, pets in California are more commonly diagnosed with fleas, tapeworms, and skin cancer compared to the national average. These health conditions are preventable and/or treatable through routine veterinary care. Pet insurance can help protect you and your pet from the increasing cost of health care associated with these illnesses.

California pet owners should also be aware of area-specific health concerns. Due to the exceedingly high temperatures in some areas of California, heat exhaustion and dehydration are common. You can lower your pet’s risk by keeping them hydrated and cool. Due to the amount of sun exposure, skin cancer is also common among pets in California compared to other states.

Pet Insurance in California

Pet insurance in California can help protect your dog or cat from these common health problems by alleviating the rising cost of veterinary care. California pet insurance plans are typically flexible, designed to meet you and your pet’s individual needs and cover accidents and illnesses. In addition to this coverage, Californians may also want to consider a wellness plan. As noted above, pets in California are most commonly diagnosed with dental tartar, periodontal disease, and being overweight.

◦ Vaccinations
