Cesar Millan, SPOT Chairman
You may know Cesar Millan from his best-selling books or TV shows where he shares techniques for rehabilitating dogs and training people to be calm, mindful pack leaders.
Cesar Millan joined forces with SPOT as Chairman in 2019. As Chairman, Cesar uses his voice to educate pet owners about the real benefits of pet insurance and everyday pet wellness, especially at a time when veterinary treatments are becoming more expensive each year.
“For pets, their loyalty is pure instinct. As pet parents, it’s our duty to make sure our family receives proper veterinary attention. SPOT is the solution to helping make sure your pet gets the proper medical attention they deserve without breaking the bank.” – Cesar Millan
The SPOT brand represents the same components that make up the soul of an animal - honesty, integrity, and loyalty. Cesar chose to partner with SPOT because he holds these same values near and dear to his heart. Together, Chairman Cesar Millan and SPOT are helping enable a healthy lifestyle at both ends of the leash

What's Not Covered?
Like all pet insurance providers, we have exclusions.
Pre-existing Conditions (?)
No pet insurance provider covers pre-existing conditions, which are conditions that occur before coverage begins or during a waiting period. However, we will no longer consider a condition to be pre-existing if it has been cured and free of symptoms and treatment for 180 days, with the exception of knee and ligament conditions. If a knee or ligament condition occurs before the coverage effective date or during a waiting period, any future ones won’t be covered.
Our plans do not cover elective procedures, such as tail docking, ear cropping, and claw removal.
Our plans do not cover costs associated with breeding or pregnancy.
Coverage for preventive care, like annual wellness exams, vaccines, and screenings, is not included in this plan. You can add preventive care coverage for a little more per month after you select your base plan.
