Pets Best Q & A
?I prefer a veterinarian who specializes in English Bulldogs. Does Pets Best offer me the flexibility to choose my own vet?
AYes, Pets Best allows its members to visit any licensed veterinarian or animal hospital.
?Are there any exclusions or limitations to coverage that could apply to my Bulldog?
AYes, Pets Best has a 12-month waiting period before coverage begins on the following conditions: Cruciate Ligament Injuries, Luxating Patellas, Hip and Elbow Dysplasia, Cardiovascular Defects, Osteochondritis Dissecans (joint disease), and Portosystemic Shunts (blood vessel abnormalities). Unfortunately, 5 out of 6 conditions on this list are common in English Bulldogs, which lowered our overall rating for Pets Best.
?Does Pets Best pay for regular vet visits and routine checkups?
ANo, for routine care such as annual checkups, blood work and teeth cleaning, members would have to add BestWellness routine care coverage for an additional cost.
?My English Bulldog responds well to massage and chiropractic care. Do Pets Best plans include alternative care treatments?
AMost Pets Best plans include coverage for alternative care treatments like chiropractic care, physical therapy, hydrotherapy and massage. However, the basic, entry-level plans do not include alternative care coverage.
