Common health issues for Cavoodles

Australian vets have told us the most common accidents and illnesses for Cavoodles. When it comes to protecting the health of your Cavoodle, our policies are packed with cover to suit the specific health conditions Cavoodles are prone to, and it is important to consider which policy is right for your Cavoodle.

Syringomelia

Syringomyelia in dogs are fluid-filled cavities that develop within the spinal cord often with an underlying issue of Chiari-like malformation. Many cases are found in breeds of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and its severity range from mild pain to severe pain requiring ongoing medications or surgery.

Ave. cost

About 10% of cases presented result or can be treated by surgery. Abdominal cancers could present as emergencies if previously undetected, costs range from $1,500 to $3,000. Treatment could be ongoing

Atopic skin disease

Atopic skin disease is common for cavoodles. It is caused by allergies, or ingesting a substance which the dog is sensitive to causing them to excessively rub, lick, bite or scratch. Testing must be done to determine the allergy, and treatment can range from mild medications to more substantive anti-inflammatory steroid medications.

Heart conditions

Cavoodles can be prone to Mitral Valve Disease, a heart condition caused by the degeneration of the valves that pump blood in the heart. One in Ten of all dogs will develop some form of heart disease over their lifetime, and 80% of these is said to be due to Mitral Valve Insufficiency.

Tips for choosing the right insurance for your Cavoodle

If you're looking for the best pet insurance for Cavoodles you really have to look closely at the policies available, what they include and also don't include, and the sub-limits on some of the accident and illness covers because not everything is covered to the full annual policy limit. 

  • Be aware of sub-limits – While a cheap monthly premium can seem appealing, its more important to look at the sub-limits for cover in the policy to make sure you’re not leaving your pet underinsured or uninsured for conditions their breed may be prone to.
  • Look after your pets teeth – When we think of protecting our pets, we should also protect their teeth. Pets use their mouth for lots of things; playing, exploring their surroundings as puppies and eating. Dental treatments are expensive, and dental cover is an important add-on that can help keep your pets smile happy and healthy.
  • Take advantage of gap payments – Taking out a policy with gap payments can help bring down the premium on higher-coverage products. If you want better cover at a lower cost, opt for 80% benefit level instead of 100%.
