why get coverage?
Senior dogs have had a lifetime of adventures, making them mature, loyal, and wise beyond their years. But as they age, their silvered noses and time-tested tails can also lead to more health issues, like hip dysplasia, arthritis, even cancer. That’s why the best time to get a pet insurance plan for your senior canine companion is now. With coverage for potential problems down the road, you can rest easy and enjoy all the bittersweet moments of owning a senior dog without worrying about unexpected expenses. Give your senior dog the golden years they deserve and get peace of mind knowing they’re protected for covered conditions with a plan from the ASPCA® Pet Health Insurance program.
FAQs frequently asked questions about our senior dog insurance plans
Yes! While it’s best to enroll your dog when they’re young, senior dogs are still prime candidates for pet insurance. The ASPCA® Pet Health Insurance programs covers dogs as young as 8 weeks old up through their final years.
Unlike other providers, there are no upper-age restrictions for enrolling in an ASPCA® Pet Health Insurance plan, and we don’t limit or reduce your coverage, so your senior dog can get the care they require in their golden years.
Absolutely. Like us humans, as a dog enters their golden years, they’re at a higher risk of developing a serious illness or having an unexpected accident. They’ll likely require more frequent visits to the vet and costly treatments like prescription medications or alternative therapies. By paying you back for eligible expenses, a Complete Coverage℠ plan lets you focus on your senior dog’s care, not the cost of it, so you can help them live a happier, healthier, longer life.
The cost of getting your dog enrolled in a dog insurance plan depends on a few factors, including their age, breed, plan choice, and zip code. Age plays a part because older dogs often have more health issues than younger ones. This means they might require more frequent and expensive visits to the vet.
However, with an ASPCA® Pet Health Insurance plan, you have the power to customize your plan by choosing your own annual limit, annual deductible, and reimbursement percentage, all of which play into keeping your monthly premium low.
