    If you are looking to take out new insurance then I think most (if not all) dont cover for any pre existing problems, so any treatment needed in the future for the hip dysplsia would,not be paid for by them.

    They would cover any new illnesses though if that s what you are wondering.

    no insurance company will cover hip displasia for your dog, unfortunately. with that in mind, you may still want to take out cover for other illnesses and accidents but make sure you save some money to have that hip displasia treated too.
