atically or temptingly) is not the best option for ensuring your dog’s best health in the long-term; for this you, as the aware pet owner, must also ensure that there is a clause for proper treatment coverage offered in the plan for your pet’s eye health.

Many a time, the health insurance companies offering discounted or attractive insurance policy prices for their plans fail to outline that their health plans are limited in the coverage they offer for dogs and so it turns out in the end that the eyes were not insured after all. This news may register only too late for the pet owner hoping to cover cost of treatment for visual disorders and accidents through the pet health insurance policy and getting a rude shock when they get to know that if their belongs to a breed that is categorically known for its tendency towards chronic eye problems, he may be out of the running for getting an eye health coverage included!

So, this is why it is important for potential dog owners to purchase a pup from a registered and recognized agency like the CERF (Canine Eye Registration Foundation) or from professional dog-breeders that have a good reputation for being above-board in their dealings so they are assured of getting a healthy puppy, with no known medical problems. Some breeders are certified by CERF and these are the guys to consult and buy your pets from; choose with care at this stage and you will have lesser hassles when you pick that pet health insurance policy, advice experts.

However, it is also a known fact that pet health insurance companies are increasingly raising the bar for the kind of pets they will insure even at premium costs and some even ask of the owners to undertake genetic screening for their pups before the next stage of policy processing can be done.

Among the most harrowing experience for a dog owner who is hoping to get an adequate pet health insurance policy out is to find out that his dog has been diagnosed with Glaucoma, a common enough eye condition that typically starts with signs like dilated pupils that don’t react very well to light and redness in the eyes, poor vision etc.

The dog’s cornea may also get cloudy due to the above condition and though some California pet doctors may say the symptoms of Glaucoma are subtle, it is still necessary that as caring pet owners, you bring in your dog for immediate attention and medical examination at the very signs of any of these.

This is because in a pet, Glaucoma left unattended for more than 2 days can lead to increased pressure in the eyeball that has a strong possibility of turning into a case of permanent blindness, which is so avoidable and so sad for both pet and owner – so why not stay alert and prevent the neglect with timely care?

If you are the owner of a ‘squinting dog’ – who sheds too many tears or seems to have a persistent eye irritation, it could well be the beginning of a cancer or a condition called Blastomyosis; besides, other conditions related to dog eye health disorder that can begin with even a scratch to the cornea are Dermoidis, which is a type of benign corneal neoplasam – much like having a third eyelid or cause a sticky discharge and ulcer to appear within the eye.

Whether it is teary-eyes or even dry eyes, these are conditions of eye health that a pet owner needs to watch out for and get medical attention for their pet immediately to control it from growing in intensity; from cataract disorders (where the opacity of the lens is affected) to bloody eyes, swollen eyelids and permanently dilated pupils, there are lots of related problems that owners need to be alert about in order to ensure their dog’s best health at all times.
