Illness/illnesses: changes in your pets state of health that are not caused by an accident, or any which may be resulting from gradual or biological cause. Recurring and/or on-going illnesses shall be considered as one loss. Such illness being defined as:- a) Clinical manifestations resulting in the same diagnosis (regardless of the number of incidents or areas of the body affected) to which your pet has an on-going predisposition or susceptibility related in any way to the original claim; or b) Illnesses which are incurable and likely to continue for the remainder of your pet’s life. For illnesses that can have multiple sites or bilateral illnesses such as eyes, ears or legs we shall treat all occurrences of an illness as the same illness and apply just one vet fee limit and charge only one excess. This is the definition as to how benefits are provided under this policy of insurance. If the condition diagnosis by your veterinary surgeon is the same as a previous condition they will be treated as the same condition even if the problem is a different part of your pets body, if your pet has a growth on the left ear which is subsequently found on the right ear both will be treated in benefit terms as the one condition. Benefit limits and the start date for the condition will be from the date that the left ear growth was found irrespective of the time difference between diagnoses. We will always treat the same diagnosis as one condition irrespective of when or where in your pets body the symptoms are found, even where the condition is diagnosed in different legs for the purposes of allocating benefits and deciding the start date for the condition it will be the date that the first symptom was diagnosed. For the avoidance of doubt an illness is taken to start from the date that symptoms are first noticed, by either you or your vet (whichever is the earliest) not the date that an illness is first treated by your vet.
