English Springer Spaniel insurance considerations

Most English Springer Spaniels live long and happy lives, but they can suffer from specific health problems, such as otitis and cruciate ligament disease. That’s why it’s important that when choosing dog insurance, you consider the length of time policies cover different conditions. Petplan’s Covered For Life® plans refresh the veterinary fees each year allowing you to claim for ongoing conditions for the rest of your pet’s life providing there is no break in cover.
