What to know before you buy or rehome a Beagle

Considering welcoming a Beagle into your home? Before you buy or adopt one, here are a few important things to remember.

Beagle insurance considerations

Choosing the right insurance for your Beagle can help keep them happy and healthy whatever happens. Conditions that we see they are prone to are not always covered as some other providers’ policies limit what they’ll pay for certain conditions, like cruciate ligament injuries. Others won’t cover your pet for dental illness or injury, or for congenital and hereditary conditions. With Petplan’s Covered for Life® dog insurance we have no additional limits for specific conditions or diagnostic tools.
