    What injury are you concerned about covering in the future on the good knee that might have preventive surgery?

    If the preventive surgery might be construed to have contributed in some way to a later injury in the knee...then I suspect the insurance company would consider it to be a pre-existing injury and would not cover it.

    By the way, I think Ted has gone the extra mile to share his experience and the info he has. I would certainly be grateful and appreciative of the responses he has provided if I had a dog in a situation similar to yours.

    I was curious if any injury would be covered on the good knee that had preventitive surgery. Per petplan if the good knee is operated on then it is excluded from any injury coverage down the road. I appreciate Ted's taking the time to provide the info he has, it has given me tons to consider and has been very good info. Sometimes you come accross like your being rude over the internet, people who know me would tell you thats not me at all. Tone and inflection are impossible on a computer. Thanks for all the help--surgery is later today.

    This would be correct. And, BTW, your policy documents are on the website. Just sign in to your account.

    That is what I expected. After all, the surgery certainly would "injure", then repair the structure of the good knee..making it a pre-existing injury. I hope the surgery and the rehab goes well. Which cruciate repair procedure is being performed today?

    OK you got off a tangent about an unlikely hypothetical.
    ? Is PetPlan covering the TPLO surgery on the injured knee or not?
    If yes, you said $'s an issue and you plan to take dog to work and rehab him on truck right? That's not good.
    Instead of worrying about the good leg I would worry about proper rehab after the tplo.
    If PetPlan is in fact covering TPLO they will also cover a good amount of the rehab.
    If PetPlan is not covering anything then oh well......

    No. He wasn't insured at the time. Of course they aren't covering it. I can't afford to leave the dog for rehab at the price they charge per day. Per Dr Milton he rarely ever sees anyone who leaves their dog somewhere for rehab. It's no problem to do yourself according to him. I'll consult with dr Milton about rehab concerns an what he suggests I'll do.

    Fwiw he will be on crest for good amount of time initially regardless. Whether he is in a crate at home or in my vehicle is irrelevant to me. At least if he is with me we can get our leash walks and exercises in and keep him on a more stable schedule.
