Can I get pet insurance that covers female dog pregnancy and birth?


No, your female dog's pregnancy is usually considered an excluded medical condition. Thus, costs for treatment for its pregnancy, as well as treatment needed when it gives birth will not be considered payable under a standard pet insurance policy.

A dog's pregnancy is considered as something that is preventable and avoidable. Pregnancy is also not actually an illness. If pet insurance covers female dog pregnancy, then a lot of owners with female dogs will allow their pets to get pregnant!

Pregnancy also opens up the pet to a lot of other related illnesses and pregnancy in itself poses a lot of risks on the life of the dog.
