What is the best type of insurance for your Hungarian Vizsla?
When choosing a pet insurance plan it is important to identify how each policy works in connection with your dog’s health and medical requirements.
For your Hungarian Vizsla, a maximum benefit policy is a great fit. This cover is affordable and you can claim more than once for the same condition, which is ideal for your Hungarian Vizsla should they develop a condition like gastric dilatation volvulus which is fairly common for bigger dogs. However, you should be aware that the financial limit for each condition does not reset with the renewal of the policy, so it is important to pick a policy with a high financial limit, and that you are prepared to pay for any further treatment.
Alternatively, you may want to consider a lifetime insurance policy. With this cover, the financial limit for each condition resets at the renewal of the policy. Whilst this policy is often the most expensive, it limits the likelihood of you having to fund treatments yourself.
