Although not very common, the state of Ohio seems to have seen several cases of it. The bacteria which cause the disease can typically be found in the gastrointestinal tract of even the healthiest mammals. This gets shed through feces.

Fleas can actually spend their winters indoors, using our pets as hosts to survive the colder weather and certain ticks can become active when the temperature drops to around 40 degrees. It’s important that pet owners in Ohio take proper precautions to help prevent our pets from bringing ticks and fleas into homes from outside. Fleas and ticks can easily spread diseases and illnesses with some symptoms of fleas including itchiness and hair loss around the affected areas. For tick-borne illnesses, some symptoms can include fever or chills, lethargy, and difficulty walking. You should always check your pets for fleas or ticks after they come inside from playing outdoors, or after a hike with your dog.

Pet Insurance FAQs

Have questions about petinsurance and how it works? Let’s dig up an answer.

Are pre-existing conditions covered by pet insurance?

Plans provided by Spot do not cover pre-existing conditions.

A pre-existing condition is any injury or illness which occurs or shows symptoms before coverage starts or during a waiting period. A condition is considered pre-existing whether or not it’s been officially diagnosed or treated; all that matters is when it occurred or symptoms first displayed.

However, with plans provided by Spot, this doesn’t mean the condition can’t be covered in the future if the condition is curable. An injury or illness that is curable, cured, and free of treatment and symptoms for 180 days will no longer be regarded as pre-existing, 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.
