Why does my pet have to have an annual dental check?

Whether you have a cat, dog or rabbit insurance policy, you must take reasonable steps to maintain your pet's health throughout the policy year and to prevent injury and illness. Therefore you must arrange and pay for your pet to have an annual dental examination by a vet in order to prevent illness or injury and get any treatment they recommend to be carried out within 6 months. By continuing with these check-ups this shows us that you have played your part in caring for your dog, cat or rabbit, so we can play ours.
