Unmatched pet insurance for Shih Tzus

Their name translates to “lion dog,” a nod to their royal origins as the chosen pet of Chinese emperors. And Shih Tzus indeed have a mane — their soft, long double coat tangles easily and requires daily brushing.

They’re an undeniably special breed — right down to their unique health concerns. Not all pet insurance providers cover breed-specific issues. We do.
