Senior pets – just like senior people – experience more health problems as they age than those in the younger years.
A large percentage of senior pets have dental disease and arthritis, just to name two problems that are common and often undiagnosed.
There are thirteen pet insurance companies insuring pets in North America. About half of them have age limitations, in that they will insure dogs and cats under the age of 8 to 12 years old depending on the type of pet and the company’s policy language. The other half has no age limitations on their policies and will insure any pet at any age.
However, once insured, most pets will be insured for life as long as you maintain your policy and pay your premiums. If you are shopping for a pet insurance policy, please confirm the rules regarding senior coverage with the company you are choosing.
I hope this article gives you more information about if Pet Insurance Companies Drop Pets at a Certain Age.
