A cleft palate is an opening in roof of a dog's mouth. Cleft palates vary in size and placement but can be deadly for puppies because it restricts normal breathing and eating.


In most cases surgery is required to fix cleft palates in dogs. Veterinary surgery is very expensive and pet insurance can help pay the bills.

However, your dog must be enrolled in a pet insurance plan while they're young and healthy to avoid being denied coverage based on pre-existing conditions.

Cost to Treat: $2,000 to $4,000
