If you pay for pet insurance for your “fur child,” you’d expect it to pay out when you need it. But KPIX Consumer Reporter Julie Watts reveals a surprise loophole that could cost you even more money.
Bottom line, enroll your four-legged babies before they’re 1 year old, and don’t cancel or switch plans. Before enrolling, ask the insurer to specifically review your pet’s medical records and identify (in writing) any possible “pre-existing conditions.”
(Oh, and research complaints online before selecting that insurer.)
SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — Janie Havemeyer wasn’t surprised when her Golden Retriever Coby hovered up a sidewalk snack during his daily walk. It’s what happened later that left Havemeyer in disbelief.
Within a few hours of returning from his stroll Coby couldn’t move or even lift his head. A trip to the emergency vet revealed the 5-year-old pup had ingested marijuana.
