hi, I'm new so I hope I haven't missed another post helping someone else with similar problems. my 8mth old lab has just been diagnosed with him dysplasia. on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being good n 10 being bad he is an 8! it's taken our breath away to know that he's this bad. but he's still my boy and he's getting the best of love. I am with direct line insurance and will claim for the Xrays but the vets have said they wouldn't operate yet. not only this I only took cover out to £4000 thinking it would be enough... (I know I'm a first puppy owner n didn't know what scrapes they can get into, especially this wee man). is there an insurance company that would take him on as lifetime insurance if he's ok and doesn't need any help over the next couple of years? (he's now getting the right exercise, swimming, physio & vitamins - glucosamine & turmeric tablets and he seems good on these. will anyone insure him for lifetime cover?
