Common Health issues in Persian Cats

Pet Insurance for Persian Cats

If you are looking for pet health insurance for your Persian Cat, you should make sure that genetic conditions are covered. Persian Cats can develop respiratory issues or may be born with respiratory issues as they are genetically predisposed to these 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 health condition that needs treatment. The earlier you detect a health issue in your Persian Cat, the better the outcome as there are medications that your cat can take every day to help prevent their condition from worsening. You will also want health insurance with a short waiting time 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 Persian Cats!
