Exotic Shorthair Cats 

Exotic shorthair cats are a short hair version of a Persian cat. These cats have short noses just like a Persian cat too. These cats are very playful and friendly. Since they do not have long hair they do not have the grooming needs like Persians. Since they are such a loving breed and very easy to care for they are a very popular cat breed in the US.

Pet Insurance for Exotic Shorthair Cats

If you are looking for pet health insurance for your Exotic Shorthair Cats, you should make sure that genetic conditions are covered. Exotic Shorthair Cats can develop heart issues or be born with this as they are genetically predisposed to heart conditions. It is best to have your cat examined every 6 to 12 months by your vet to ensure that your cat does not have any new heart condition that needs treatment. The earlier you detect a heart issue in your Exotic Shorthair Cats, the better the outcome as there are medications that your cat can take every day to help prevent their heart disease from worsening. You will also want one with short waiting times as many of these procedures need to be done right away.

You could also consider enrolling in Pet Assure, a veterinary discount plan that is a low-cost pet insurance alternative. This plan has no exclusions due to age, breed, or hereditary conditions. Even pre-existing conditions are covered! Get a quote today. It's perfect for Exotic Shorthair Cats!
