What is the best type of insurance for your Labradoodle?
When deciding on a pet insurance plan, it is important to recognise that not every insurance policy will suit every dog, as health requirements change from breed to breed. Therefore, it is essential to factor in the potential health requirements that your Labradoodle may face.
For your Labradoodle, a lifetime insurance policy may be a good investment. There are a number of conditions that your Labradoodle could develop that will require daily medication, such as epilepsy. Whilst this policy is often the most expensive, it could be the right fit, especially for lifelong illnesses, as the financial limit for each condition restarts with the renewal of the policy. This means that all conditions will continue to be covered by your insurance plan, and limits the likeliness of you having to cover any needed treatments yourself.
If this doesn’t appeal to you, you may wish to opt for a maximum benefit policy. This insurance is often more affordable, and you are able to claim more than once for each condition. However, be aware that when the financial limit for each condition is reached, it does not restart with the renewal of the policy, and the condition becomes pre-existing, meaning it is no longer viable to be covered by any future insurance.
