What is the best type of insurance for your Great Dane?
Great Dane’s are susceptible to a number of serious and ongoing illnesses. It is important to take this factor into consideration when deciding on your insurance policy.
A lifetime policy is probably the best fit for a Great Dane. Whilst you may be deterred by the expense, your Great Dane has a significant chance of contracting common health issues so in the long run it could just save you money. With a lifetime policy, the financial limit for each condition resets at the renewal of your policy, limiting the likelihood of you shedding out money on treatments.
If you do feel that a lifetime insurance policy is too expensive, you could opt for a maximum benefit policy. All new illnesses will be insured up to a financial limit, but once this is reached for each condition, it does not reset with the renewal of the policy. This means that you will you have to pay for any further treatment yourself.
