Top 5 Most Common Claims from Alaska Pet Parents

Below are the 5 most common pet health conditions in Alaska, based on claims from PetFirst policyholders in Alaska.

Condition Cost per Vet Visit Covered by PetFirst
Ear Infection $109.63
Allergies $168.62
Dermatitis $132.09
Arthritis $125.05
Mass Removal $327.21

Alaskan pet owners are more likely to see mass removals for their pets than other common issues like upper respiratory infection or gastritis. Once a pet has a mass like a lypoma or cysts, it is likely they will experience other masses down the road. PetFirst's pet insurance policy covers the first and recurring mass removals, so Alaskan pet parents can rest easy knowing they can afford the surgeries and treatments of these masses. One Alaskan pet owner spent $2,578.11 on the removal of their pet's abdominal mass.

Condition Cost per Vet Visit Covered by PetFirst
Mass Removal $300-2,600
