Insurance companies handle injuries to pets differently. Some consider your pet as your personal property and thus consider their injuries in your policy while others offer an additional Pet Injury Coverage or no coverage options at all. Your best bet is to contact your insurance company or review your policy documents to see if your coverage extends to your dog.
