Does pet insurance cover: Your dog’s ear infection?
Katri is spending a peaceful autumn evening at home with her beloved dog Diego. During the evening, Katri notices how Diego while playing on the floor shakes his head for some reason and rubs his ears against the corner of the living room sofa. Katri takes Diego on her lap for closer inspection and notices that the skin on the inside of the dog’s ears is red. Katri books Diego an appointment with a FirstVet online veterinarian, who says that Diego probably has an ear infection in both ears. The infection can’t be treated at home this time, so an appointment is made for Diego to see a vet. The vet cleans Diego’s ears and prescribes medication to clear up the ear infection.
