    What insurance do you have? If it is not a pre-existing condition, they should cover it. You can always call them and ask, too.

    What is the name of the insurance company (ie. Petplan) and what type of cover do you have?

    elongated soft palate is pre existing as they are born with it.

    I wasn't sure what soft palate condition Romeopug was referring to.

    typically if it is a condition they are born with (pre existing), insurance companies will not cover it. at least American insurance companies. I know nothing about UK policies.

    After Elvis initially having breathing issues at 12 week plus old we were advised by they vet that he may need stenotic nares operation and elongated palate operating on. They would do the stenotic nares at time of neutering and also look at his palate whilst he was under. They explained that he would need to have stopped growing before palate could be operated on due to risk of taking too much off and that due to it being congenital the insurance company would not pay for the operation. He advised that the cost for both operations would be around 800. Which was a relief as I was expecting him to say around the 2000 mark!!

    Thankfully as Elvis has grown his nostrils have opened and as he hardly snores and doesnt have many of the symptoms described with elongated palate we are hoping that he doesn't need this operation either.

    Good luck with Romeo and hope you can get him sorted sooner rather than later. x

    Up here in Canada - Petsecure covered 80% of Gibson's surgery. Our pet insurance I thought was a lot less limited than what you guys have in the USA! I pay $60/month for Gibsons coverage and its only level 2 of 4 options.
