Beware... even though the policy specifically states,"Gingivitis and progressive periodontal disease caused by the accumulation of tartar is not a covered expense", if your pet has teeth issues NOT caused by tartar, but rather than by maloclusion, they are trying to get out of paying, refering the above exemption. My Vet is working on an appeal for me. I saw the claim that my vet submitted and it is clearly stated. They also referred to my dog's "tooth extractions". Now where on the claim was this meantioned. He still has all his teeth for now.
